York Sport Racquets FAQ’s
I have never played tennis before but want to get started. What is best for me?
Tennis Xpress is our starter adult class that runs for 50mins each week. It is essentially a cram course in tennis and has you ‘serving, rallying and scoring’ within 6 weeks and gears you up for playing matches.
Do I need my own equipment?
No, York Sport Tennis provides rackets and balls so all you need to bring is yourself and wear suitable clothing.
Do I need to be a York Sport Member to join the coaching programme at York Sport Tennis?
No. Our coaching programme is open to any age or ability and you do not need to be a York Sport Member to come along.
Do you accept child vouchers?
No. However we do work in collaboration with York Children’s University and children can gain passport stamps by taking part in our Mini Tennis sessions.
My child is 7, can he/she come along to the York Sport Tennis Easter or Summer Camps?
No. Unfortunately our Easter and Summer Camps only cater for children 8+. However they would be the right age to get involved in our Mini Tennis Programme in one of our Mini Red sessions.
My child is 4 years old. Will he be in Parents and Tots or Mini Red?
The answer is Parents and Tots. Our Parents and Tots classes are aimed at children between the ages of 3 and 5 in order to gear them up for Mini Red which starts at 5 up to the age of 8.
If I change class does my direct debit payment amount change?
No. All of our Junior Tennis classes are direct debited at £26 which allows children when they reach a certain age or ability to seamlessly move between classes without any payment change.
Can I continue to be coached through the Summer Holidays?
Yes. Our coaching programme for adult and children runs for 48 weeks of the year and therefore runs throughout the holidays and on bank holidays!
Can I do tennis at York Sport Village?
No. Our tennis courts are all at York Sport Centre on Heslington West campus of which 3 courts are covered by a single skin bubble for indoor tennis all year round.
How many courts are there at York Sport Centre?
In total we have 6 tarmac tennis courts of which 3 are outdoor and 3 indoor inside the tennis dome.
