In Association with Team Bath Tennis (SEE BOTTOM OF PAGE FOR BOOKING)

We are delighted to have Team Bath Tennis as our coaching providers, with Alex Walker and Dillon Slade as our resident coaches. Team Bath’s all-encompassing tennis programme is one of just four LTA International High Performance Centres in the UK – recognised as having exceptional tennis facilities available to performance athletes (junior and senior), members of the public and students.

Team Bath welcomes the chance to work alongside WVT as a new and exciting venue for tennis within the BANES area. In such a short space of time the club, committee and village has got behind the project massively. With ambitious plans to grow the club further this was an opportunity we are delighted to be a part of. Barry Scollo (Director of Tennis)
