West Warwicks Tennis Club is open to both members and visitors. Members will be given access to the online booking system to view available courts and book slots. Courts can only be booked by non members during off peak hours and you will either need to call or visit reception to check availability. We cannot guarantee rackets will be available to borrow so we would advise you please bring your own as spare rackets are given out on a first come, first serve basis.
Courts are priced at £5.00 per half an hour slot per person and a maximum of 3 slots per person can be booked. Please note lighting on the courts is available at no extra charge, only if required. This can be turned on by the reception or bar team.
If you'd simply like to come and watch Tennis, you can sit on our balcony which overlooks the courts.
Booking is essential for all courts to avoid disappointment.

Steve Hayward - Head Coach
With over 20 years tennis coaching experience, I currently hold the LTA Level 4 Coaching Qualification. I have worked in premier racket centres around Warwickshire, including Tudor Grange and Billesley Indoor Tennis Centres. I have coached all aspects of tennis with players of various ages and abilities. I have previously worked with Birmingham & Solihull Area Tennis Squads and currently with the Warwickshire Junior County Training Programme.
In 2000, I was appointed as Head Development Coach at Solihull Arden Tennis Club and, alongside Gary Naughton, established a Development and Performance Programme.. This Programme became extremely successful with many juniors developing from Mini Tennis level through to County, Regional and National level. It was recognised by the LTA as one of the best junior coaching programmes in the country. I also developed strong links with schools within the community.
I am currently Head Coach with a team of LTA Licensed tennis coaches forming the ASN Coaching team at West Warwickshire Sports Club in Olton, Solihull. We offer all aspects of tennis coaching from Tots to adults with Mini Tennis, Cardio Tennis, Tennis Xpress and Tennis Tuesdays all part of the Programme. The team has been established at West Warwicks for 4 years now, and continue to attract many juniors and adults of all abilities to play tennis, and more importantly, enjoy it!
