Greenwich Tennis Club is a community tennis club based in Eltham Park South (SE9) and John Roan School Playing Fields (SE3) and is run by James Maloney. The small friendly club aims to provide tennis for local people and their families catering for all ages and abilities and has something for everyone. The club also provides opportunities for people to participate in competitive and social tennis, coaching and social events.
Greenwich Tennis Club has set up an Indoor Mini Tennis Academy at Eltham Hill School. These sessions offers players the advantage of playing in a secure environment with excellent facilities. Continuity is integral in developing a players skill set by allowing them to progress to the next level. We will offer a comprehensive timetable which will concentrate on developing good technique, excellent footwork, tactical awareness and improved consistency (rally awards). At Greenwich Tennis Club we believe in a holistic approach where we look at the individual players needs as well as a whole.
Players will be coached to a level where they can play internal competitions (within the club) following this, players will have a chance to represent the club in Individual and team events. Greenwich Tennis Club is also working with the L.T.A and London Sports Limited in expanding the programme by offering 2/3 sessions for players who want to concentrate on developing their game to compete at a higher level.
