Ability Tennis

The "ABILITY not DISABILITY" programme started in 2017 and in 2021 was awarded the LTA Yorkshire Disability Award

The programmes main aims are to

1. To focus on the ability of the participants and not the disability so they can reach their full potential.

2. To inspire people with disabilities to play tennis, whatever their ability or background. 

3. To increase opportunities for Children and Adults with a disability to keep active and social while having fun challenging themselves while learning new skills.

4. To give Children and Adults with a disability the option to join Brentwood Tennis Club's all inclusive coaching and competition programmes if and when they feel comfortable to do so.


Ben works with Learning Disability Schools such as Heritage Park, Becton, Mossbrook and Rowan running tennis sessions in the Schools and hosting school visits to Brentwood Tennis Club for Learning disability tennis festivals.

Through the support of DS Active and their DS Active training programme we run an DS Family Tennis Group for children with Down’s syndrome and their families.

Please get in touch for more information or to organise a visit or simply have a chat.

Walking Tennis

We are proud to be the only place in Sheffield to host a Walking Tennis group.


This is a slower version of the game; it is tennis, but at a walking pace.  It is beneficial for anyone with long term health conditions including, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. The game has been designed so that anyone can play it, regardless of age or fitness level.  From those who have dropped out of the sport they love due to injury or health problems to those who believed they had hung up their tennis racket many years ago, it really is for everyone.
