Pay and Play
To continue with our efforts to make it as easy as possible to play regular tennis we have made all our Social and Recreational tennis matches/events Pay and Play. This means you can turn up and play as often as you are available.
We ask people to book in advance as this helps us to plan for the number of participants on the day but we will never turn someone away if they turn up and have not booked. If you do turn up and have not booked you just need to pay the organiser on arrival.
All our events are £5 entry fee
At the Excel Tennis Academy our goal is to increase participation and create more opportunities for people to play tennis and enjoy being on court. To help with this we have set up regular Junior Social Tennis Matches.
These events are designed for all players of all standards to come and play matches without the stress of a tournament or club match. These events are perfect for beginners as well as the more experienced player as they are just about having fun and playing recreational tennis.
Mini Tennis events (4 - 10 yrs old) will count towards rating as these ratings are all based on participation, However, the main aim is not about ratings it is about playing tennis for fun.
These events will not count towards ratings or rankings as we want to promote tennis as a fun sport to play and that you don't have to enter tournaments in order to play a tennis match. We will aim to get all players playing against similar age and standard players but this will depend on the number of entrants, if you wish to check before hand then please contact us first.
We will also aim to play singles and doubles.
One of our main goals in to increase the numbers of girls in tennis as well as to support the girls who already play.
We have set up some 'Girls Only' sessions. These sessions will continue to be social based with all the girls playing matches against other girls similar age and abilities (where possible).
Research has shown that most girls would continue to play and compete into their teens if they were in their own group.
Girls are welcome in ANY of our sessions but this group is specifically for them
All these matches/events are played at the Eynsham Community Tennis Facility at Bartholomew Secondary School in Eynsham
