Along with fully qualified and friendly personal trainers to help our members achieve the most from every visit and tennis coaching for both beginners and experienced players.
Colin Jarvis, Chairman, said: "We have had a hugely positive first year with a fantastic response from our members. We aim to make Medway a healthier and happier place to live. We are delighted that we can offer a service that ticks every box for our members and encourages more people to get active and if we can create a few tennis stars along the way for Britain, all the better."
With first-year memberships exceeding expectations, we have much to celebrate including our ever-popular children’s tennis camps to seeing our gym members enjoy the totally immersive cycling experience, group cycle. We have limited membership numbers as we do not want to lose the feel of the club that our members have come to enjoy.
The Avenue Tennis, tennis coaching programme has over 200 members coached on a weekly basis and importantly for the future of the game, 250 five to twelve-year-old’s as members of the club.
You can also enjoy great food, delightful atmosphere and attractive terraces within the Avenue Tennis Restaurant where we welcome non-members serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Tables book up fast for our Sunday Roasts and monthly Steak nights; and we are also well-known for our traditional Afternoon Teas.
Avenue Tennis has an excellent gym and Personal Training team who have ensured that we offer more than your traditional health club with a comprehensive fitness assessment and personalised programme to meet our member's needs. Some impressive statistics include over 800-member health assessments carried out, over 11,000 attendees to group classes and over 55,000,000kg lifted by members.
“We are an unintimidating place where everyone can come and see firsthand how health and fitness can change their lives,” says General Manager Sam Dudgeon. “I’ve spent many years working in the fitness industry, and there are so many gyms out there that just leave you to stick your headphones in and motivate yourself.”
“But we pride ourselves on treating everyone as an individual and offering one to one programmes. We’ve got so many success stories. One gentleman has dramatically improved his overall health, helping him control his long-term Type 2 diabetes, it’s incredible.”
As Avenue Tennis head into their second year, the aim is to continue and develop the social aspect of the club, with increased frequency and variation in the member's social events, starting with the members anniversary party.
“A huge thank you is required to all the staff that have contributed to making our first year a great success and continuing to deliver excellent service to all our members and customers.”
Avenue Tennis will be celebrating its first anniversary with a members evening on March 24th, 2018. The evening will include bubbles, canapes, a buffet and live music.
