Walking tennis is back

Now that outdoor sporting activities are allowed again Beverley Park Lawn Tennis Club in Whitley Bay have restarted their Walking Tennis Sessions from  Monday 29th March 2020 at these times every week. (correct as at November 2021). Sessions are no longer free, as the funding has ended, but are charged at £3 for members and £4 for non-members)

  • Tuesdays 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm
  • Wednesdays 10:00 am to 11:00 am

Walking Tennis is so inclusive, everyone can play the game, and it's great for people with long-term health conditions, recovering injured players and complete beginners.

  • No running, no jumping
  • A fun and relaxed slower version of the game
  • Played on full sized courts
  • Second bounce permitted
  • The perfect way to meet new players

All ages and abilities welcome, All equipment provided.

  • The session is for people who are:
  • Complete beginners
  • Retired
  • Recovering from long term injuries
  • Players with long term health conditions
  • Early postnatal mothers

Here's an endorsement from one of our volunteers:

David B from Whitley Bay said:

I’m looking forward to meeting up with my friends from North Tyneside Carers Centre, Bereaved Carers "Moving on Together" project, which commenced last Autumn.
The highlight of our first three months was getting together in person for Walking Tennis. Although we have done lots together on ZOOM it was nice to meet real people. The fresh air, friendly competitive spirit and gentle exercise did us all good on a lovely sunny day, and we have three further sessions to follow after Easter.
