Tennis Pilates is coming to Brookside Gym from July!

Spend more time enjoying yourself on the tennis court and less time worrying about injury with Pilates for tennis. The programme is specifically designed for the needs of tennis players.

Tennis is a lifelong game, but injuries can get in the way. These are often caused by muscle over dominance or imbalance in. It can be hard on the joints with knees, backs and hips particularly at risk. Looking after the integrity of your joints and strengthening deep stability muscles is key to prolonging and improving your performance and enjoyment.

  • Strengthen muscles to support and stabilise your hips, shoulders and spine
