New indoor tennis season brings new opportunities

With dark evenings looming and the weather bringing wind and rain, the opportunity returns for tennis players to play under the roof at the Wey Valley Tennis Centre.  The Tennis Centre, based at the Wey Valley School in Weymouth has some exciting changes to announce.


Since September, the junior tennis coaching programme previously managed by JLawes Tennis, is now under the management and operation of the Wey Valley Tennis Centre. Coaching is available to all children of all ages from 4+ and for any ability level. Prices start at just £6 per session a week and we have a range of sessions Monday - Friday to fit all.


Ryan Matthews, Tennis Liaison Officer is pleased with the start of the indoor season, ‘we have over 100 youngsters on various tennis programmes and we are currently offering all new players a free taster session to come and give it a try and on completion of one full half term we will also give each new player a free tennis racket.’  

Mr Matthews added, ‘there is no need to wait until the start of a new term to join – bookings and enquiries can be made by contacting the centre at 01305 817069 or email

The tennis centre, now in its seventh season is becoming extremely popular again and we are delighted to start welcoming back our regular bookings for the winter. The centre still has many court hours available to book for general pay and play use, charged at £12/h – that’s £3 each for a game of doubles!

The Tennis Centre also offers tennis in the day time with two courts available to book during the school day. All bookings can be made online by visiting:

Mr Matthews concluded, ‘we are working closely with the Lawn Tennis Association, local tennis clubs and schools to raise participation of tennis across the area – we have wide range of tennis events and opportunities this season for all and we are especially keen to see new players, young and old; and we hope this in turn will benefit the local tennis clubs in the area’.
