The introduction of a new tennis partnership has also allowed Friends of Pelican Park to offer more tennis opportunities than before. Cardio Tennis and Tennis 55s are both now new sessions offered as part of our program.

Cardio Tennis is a high octane cardiovascular aerobic workout that aims to improve fitness and endurance whilst playing tennis and having fun. The best thing about Cardio Tennis is that you need no previous playing experience meaning the sessions are open to players of all ages and abilities. A combination of shuttle runs, agility movements and racket games all combine to make the 45 minute session fun and beneficial at the same time.

Tennis 55s is a slightly slower session than Cardio Tennis and focuses more on social engagement and racket games. Tennis 55s offers participants the opportunity to interact with other users through the media of tennis and is more relaxed session with tea and coffee to follow. Tennis 55s may also see the introduction of a lunch club prior to the session start time with a link up from The Community Guardians but more details are to follow.


Session times and costs:

Cardio Tennis – Wednesdays 6.00-6.45pm – £3

Tennis 55s – Thursdays 2.00-3.00pm – free to club members – £3 non members
