Great fun, great people, great coaching...not only the highlight of my tennis week but the highlight of my week full stop!
Rusty Rackets & Beginners
Tennis is a lot of fun and we love to include everyone who wants to have a go - you'll love the social aspect and it’s great for fitness too. If you're new to tennis, or would like to improve your skills with similar level players, then you'll find a warm welcome at Halton. The perfect way to start is with a Rusty Rackets session – it’ll help you get more out of your game. If you’re thinking of joining, you can try a session for free!
Sessions are open to full adult members, and are ideal if you’d like to progress to regular club sessions. Our aims are to hit lots of tennis balls, do some drills and games, and offer some hints & tips on the game of doubles. Coaching courses for beginners are also available.
What our Rusties say
"The Rusty Racquets programme is the most brilliant way to get into (or back into) playing. You'll drill, run, hit balls, laugh, hit more balls, run some more and have so much fun you won't want to stop. I'd recommend Halton - and the amazing team at its heart - to everyone who wants to get fitter, improve their court skills or just play some seriously fun tennis."

Sessions include use of indoor courts during inclement weather.
Rusty Fun tournaments are held twice a year in March and October, and are a fun afternoon of doubles (each round with a different set of rules and scoring systems), followed by a match tea and an evening out to celebrate.
Our Annual Rusty Racket Tour started in 2010 where a group of 18 Rusties enjoyed 5 days of sun, tennis (and drinking!) in Calahonda, Spain.
