Tennis is an outdoor activity, and therefore affected by the weather. During times of heavy rain, thunderstorms, snow and ice, coaching sessions will have to be cancelled. On these occasions, the coach for the session will make the best possible decision in the interest of both players and parents and this decision will be made when possible on site. If you have any doubts regarding your tennis session then please call Jono on 07554 226939.
Courses will be run over a given number of weeks with 2 ‘spare weeks’ to cope with missed sessions. Regrettably refunds cannot be given when the full course cannot be completed due to weather conditions out of our control.
