Serving Tennis - Schools

Company Background

Home of the Totton & Eling Tennis Centre

Serving Tennis has existed since 2004, with the goal to deliver community tennis opportunities to as many people as possible. Our services have ranged from managing local authority facilities, to working in partnership with leisure providers to deliver community coaching programmes. We have also supported smaller clubs through services such as fundraising, coach development and tennis court cleaning.

Serving Tennis now focuses mainly on the Totton & Eling Tennis Centre, and offers consultancy / project management services to organisations looking to establish facilities / programmes themselves. Areas of expertise include:


Establishing New Facilities & Programmes

Serving Tennis' primary area of expertise is in managing & developing community tennis facilities & programmes. In 2004, working in partnership with Totton & Eling Town Council, Serving Tennis designed and built the Totton & Eling Tennis Centre, an 8-outdoor-court, floodlit facility with café / bar, club shop and changing rooms. The facility was built after a significant participation drive in the previous years, involving schools outreach work and free coaching on local park courts. Since 2004, the programme has developed to involve over 500 regular weekly players, including a large number of members, coaching attendees and casual court hirers. Serving Tennis continues to manage all aspects of the tennis centre, and has recently signed a further long-term lease.

Serving Tennis is therefore well-equipped to advise on new projects, with a wide variety of relevant expertise:
