The new Cardio Tennis class at Tide Leisure Centre is open to members and serves up a different kind of group exercise fun!

Cardio Tennis is a fun, sociable group fitness class set on a tennis court and open to people of all ages and abilities. Supported by music and a qualified instructor, you’ll get to hit lots of tennis balls during your class and have a great cardio workout at the same time.

Cardio Tennis at Tide Leisure Centre is run by Karen. Karen is a Level 2 Accredited Tennis Coach and has trained to become a Cardio Tennis Instructor.  She became involved in tennis at Deal Indoor Tennis Centre (DITC) 10 years ago, initially as a supportive tennis parent, but then becoming a player in her own right. Following a career break, Karen swapped pharmacy for sport, and started working at Deal Parochial Primary School. There, she has been integral to Deal Parochial’s LTA Award-winning tennis programme, which has seen the school be named National Runners-Up in 2019 and 2021. During this time, Karen has also become a regular coaching face at DITC, initially during her tennis coach training, then as a cover coach, and now with classes for beginner and intermediate tennis players. 

So, what makes Cardio Tennis so good? Well, Cardio Tennis is a group fitness class with a tennis theme.  It was developed in the USA in 2005 before being introduced to the UK in 2007. Cardio Tennis provides fun, sociable, fitness sessions set on a tennis court and accompanied by music. Participants are kept constantly on the move by hitting lots of tennis balls and with numerous side-line exercise activities, and they typically burn between 300 and 1000 calories during each hour session. 

Cardio Tennis is for anyone and everyone; people of all ages and abilities will enjoy the fun, high energy sessions, whether, they are existing tennis players who want to try a different type of session, or ‘Rusty Racket’ players who are returning to tennis, or people who have no tennis experience but want to try a fitness class with a difference! 

Our Cardio Tennis sessions will take place at Deal Indoor Tennis Centre on Wednesday mornings from 10 to 11am, starting on 23 February 2022. 

Price: £9 per-player or Free with a  Live Better Groove, Groove Plus, Escape or Play Membership.
