My husband and I love our group lessons at Making Aces. We found the club when our children were little – we joined the adult group whilst they were in the children’s group – the children are now grown up and we’re still coming! Great coaching, great club, great people – fun and friendly and everyone welcome. Saturday morning lessons are one of the highlights of our week!


Couldn’t be happier with Making Aces they’re a cut above! Our son has come on leaps and bounds in his tennis and confidence. He loves the tournaments and can’t wait for his coaching with George. Abosultely fantastic!


My son absolutely loves his tennis lessons. Barney, George and the team at Making Aces are always enthusiastic and encouraging come rain or shine, and the lessons are fun and comprehensive. Jeremy also thoroughly enjoys the holiday camps. He would go everyday if he could!


Incredibly welcoming and the coaching is amazing!


Our daughter loves coming here each week. It’s so great for them to get out in the fresh air, get some exercise and learn a sport that could interest them later in life. The holiday camps are amazing and such fun for them.


This was the 3rd place I had taken my 11 year old son to learn tennis, and straight from the off I could tell that what Barney had created was special. All of the kids are fully engaged in the sessions and look like they are having fun which in my opinion is just what you want. My son absolutely loves it! Seeing how much my son is enjoying it, I have also signed up for the adult sessions and I think it’s fantastic! If you’ve ever wanted to learn to play tennis then definitely check these out – 100% worth it!


Our 5 year old daughter loves Tennis with George and the wonderful coaches! Fun & welcoming atmosphere. Highly recommend.


Great coaches, friendly atmosphere and really affordable. We love coming here!
