King’s Rochester Sports Centre
The King’s Rochester Sports Centre (formerly The Stirling Centre) has been owned and managed by King’s Rochester School since October 2012. The Centre was acquired to provide top sporting facilities for King’s pupils as well as providing the local community. So the centre’s aim is to provide the best and most affordable leisure and sporting amenities in the area.
It’s easy to book a court outside school hours for your own games. So grab your racket and some mates and get on court!
LTA Performance Tennis Coaches lead the centre’s extensive coaching programme. These sessions are available for all ages and abilities.
Juniors can join in with the club’s LTA mini programme. Starting with smaller equipment and courts, children as young as 3 years old can learn the basics of tennis. As they grow and develop, the programme aims to develop children on to full-size courts, balls and rackets. This is the best way for children to learn tennis in a fun way.
Adult courses are available for players with little, or no tennis experience to players with a sound tennis background. These sessions will focus on developing technique and understanding using point-based drills and match-play.
The club runs a number of tournaments each year, which are open to all members. However, the club doesn’t offer any league opportunities.
You don’t need to be a member to enjoy what King’s Rochester Sports Centre offers. However, membership makes it’s cheaper to join coaching courses and play in tournaments.
