Richard Harrison is part of the MTC team and takes the Cardio sessions




7.30pm - 8.30pm



Cardio tennis has little to do with tennis coaching - although you do get to hit loads of junior tennis balls - they go everywhere! - but it's 60 minutes of basically oncourt jogging, running about, and FUN!



It's a great way to get fit and Cardio Fitness training is now available at Slinfold tennis club every Wednesday at 7.30pm
