What area does Optima specialise in?
We provide tennis coaching for all ages and abilities. We also run a performance coaching programme which is designed for the keenest and most able players.
What happens if it rains?
Normally we would try and play through light rain. We would postpone a lesson if it was torrential rain and put an extra one on at the end of the block.
Do you need to bring your own equipment?
We can provide all equipment so don't worry if you haven't got your own racket yet.
What are the ratios for childrens classes?
Tiny Tennis & Mini Tennis have ratios of 1:6 or 1:8. Junior tennis has a ratio of 1:8.
What qualifications have the coaches got?
Steve Garbutt (Head Coach) - ICA
Rebecca Newell (Assistant Coach) - RPT Mark of a Pro.
All coaches and assistants are CRB checked.
I have never played before, would I be able to attend lessons?
We can cater for all abilities so don't worry about getting involved. If you are unsure contact us via email or phone to discuss your requirements.
Will my child be moved up a level if they show improvement?
Yes. All players performances are reviewed regularly and those who are deemed ready are promoted.
