Our outdoor tennis courts

Bluecoat Sports tennis court facilities offer an enjoyable experience for tennis enthusiasts of all levels. With six state-of-the-art outdoor courts, the facility provides a perfect setting for players to hone their skills or enjoy a friendly match.

The courts are meticulously maintained to ensure optimal playing conditions, and the facility provides all the necessary equipment for hire, ensuring that players have everything they need for a great game. Members have the added advantage of bringing up to three guests by paying a guest fee, making it an ideal spot for a social tennis outing. Before hitting the courts, players must check in at the reception to ensure a seamless experience. 

Short Tennis

Are you 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, it is a great way of keeping fit while playing either a sociable or competitive game.

Booking is hassle-free, with members having the privilege of reserving courts up to eight days in advance, while PAYGO+ members can book four days in advance. Or play on a pay-as-you-go basis, booking one day in advance. 

Table Tennis

In addition to tennis, we offer indoor table tennis facilities. Anyone can hire our table tennis facilities, so whether 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.

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 Table Tennis and don’t own your own equipment then you are welcome to rent our rackets for £1.00 (a refundable deposit of £5.00 will be charged upon hire & refunded upon the safe return of the equipment).

Health Benefits

Playing tennis, whether competitively or for fun, is great for your overall physical fitness. While playing, you will work on your reaction times as you quickly move across the court. As a result, you will increase your aerobic capacities and lower your resting heart rate and blood pressure while improving muscle tone, strength, and flexibility.

Did you know that 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 shoulder’s rotator cuff muscles, the pectorals, biceps, deltoids and the forearm, as the hip and core muscles help generate internal shoulder rotation.
  • The backhand stroke uses fewer hip and core muscles but relies heavily on the trapezius, latissimus dorsi, and triceps.

At Bluecoat Sports, you will always have someone to play with. We have several 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 members on 01403 247572.
