Group Coaching

The Coaching Programme is now in full swing! All ages and abilities welcome, so come down and get involved. The coaching blocks follow the school half terms - with the holidays as a break in the middle.

Tennis Camps

Making Aces are running a number of tennis camps throughout the year for ages 8-11 yrs. We have a great reputation for providing children with a day of fun packed activities and parents with a restful day!

One to One Coaching

The Making Aces Coaching Team offer individual coaching for members of Spring Lane Tennis Club and also to non-members. Lessons go ahead in all conditions!

Fun Tournaments

We run a series of mini tournaments at Spring Lane Tennis Club. These are a great way for children to practice the skills as well as being a fun intro into competition, without it being too serious.

Spring Lane Tennis Club

We are a club that offers a modern and friendly atmosphere. We welcome players of all levels - there are plenty who have only taken up tennis in the past few years, so don’t worry about your standard!

Find Us

We are located at Spring Lane Tennis Club, which is just off Spring Lane in Colchester. It is easily accessible from the A12 or from the Braiswick area and just down the road from Play Golf.
