At Bluecoat Sports, we have 6 outdoor Tennis courts that are free to use for Full or Rackets Only members. We also offer our Tennis courts on a Pay as You Go Basis for non-members. Anybody can book a Tennis court – it’s the perfect activity to play with friends or family, or even get competitive with a fellow player!
As well as Tennis, we offer Table Tennis facilities. Anybody can hire our Table Tennis facilities; if you’re looking for a fun activity to play with the family or you play Table Tennis competitively, come and enjoy our facilities throughout the week.
Looking for something different? At Bluecoat Sports, you can play Short Tennis. This game is played on half of the court – and will be twice the fun! Played with softer balls and a lower net, this game is a great way of keeping fit whilst playing either a sociable or competitive game.
You can book all our racket courts today via our ‘Bluecoat Sports’ app, our website, or by contacting one of our friendly team on 01403 247572. If you are new to playing these sports and don’t own your own equipment, then you are welcome to rent our equipment at no additional cost.
Playing Tennis, whether it is competitively or for fun, is a great for your overall physical fitness; whilst playing you will be working on your reaction times and quickly moving across the court. As a result, you will increase your aerobic capacities and lower your resting heart rate and blood pressure whilst improving muscle tone, strength, and flexibility
Did you know, playing 1 hour of singles Tennis burns around 600 calories for men and 420 calories for women. Tennis typically exercises the following muscle groups:
- Core muscles: rectus abdominus, transverse abdominus, internal and external oblique muscles.
- Quadriceps, hip, and calf muscles: work with the core muscles to generate power and movement.
- The forehand stroke relies specifically on the rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder, the pectorals, biceps, deltoids and the forearm, as the hip and core muscles help to generate internal shoulder rotation.
- The backhand stroke uses less of the hip and core muscles, but relies heavily on the trapezius, latissimus dorsi and triceps.
At Bluecoat Sports you will never lack someone to play with. We have a number of opportunities for you to meet new friends and play with other members and guests. You can book a court today via our ‘Bluecoat Sports’ app, our website, or by contacting one of our friendly team on 01403 247572.
