This course is meant for students that have never played tennis before or that cannot play a rally on the entire court yet.

Tennis – advanced (10 weeks)

This course is meant for students that are able to play a rally on the entire court, but do not have the level to play a real tennis match. The focus in the course will be on improving the technique, tactics, and the rules of the game. Students that already have the level of skills to play a match for themselves are advised to become a member of one of the tennis associations or to use the online reservation option to reserve a tennis court.

*Rackets are available at the course.

Free reservation

You can rent a tennis racket for € 1,00 at the information desk of the Sports Centre. New balls are sold at € 6,50 per can (3 balls).
