Swansea Tennis Centre
Swansea Tennis Centre was once a failing Council-run tennis centre which was under threat of total closure in 2009. This was until a group of volunteers campaigned tirelessly to keep it open. They set up TS365 which is a ‘not for profit’ social enterprise, wrote a business plan which was accepted by Swansea City and County Council. A 25-year lease was then negotiated on the Morfa building and grounds.
Swansea Tennis Centre has been recognised nationally for its contribution to tennis. The centre has won an Outstanding Achievement Award at the Tennis Wales Awards in 2012. Also, the Lawn Tennis Association highlights the club as ‘best practice’.
In addition to both indoor and outdoor tennis courts, the facilities also include a Gym.
Whether you want to join in one of the many weekly club sessions simply hire a court for your own games, there’s plenty of opportunities for both.
Coaching sessions for all ages and abilities, from tots to vets! Starting with mini tennis, children as young as 3 can learn basic tennis skills using smaller equipment. The junior programme combines coaching, club sessions and competitions and is an exciting way to develop your tennis skills. Adult sessions run at three different levels: beginner, improver and advanced.
In addition to the exciting programme, the coaches are available for private lessons.
While the club doesn’t compete in local leagues, there are some competitions available for juniors.
At Swansea Tennis Centre, there are affordable activities for the local community, ranging from tennis coaching, disability sessions, multi-sports and fitness. No membership required, so simply turn up and join in!
