short tennis

Short Tennis is a fun and engaging variation of traditional tennis, played on a smaller court with softer balls and shorter rackets. It’s designed to be accessible for players of all skill levels, making it perfect for beginners and those looking to enjoy a more relaxed game. The smaller playing area and equipment make it easier to play, promoting longer rallies and more enjoyable matches.

A U3A Group for Older Adults

Our Short Tennis sessions at YMCA Taunton are part of the University of the Third Age (U3A) initiative, specifically catering to older adults who are keen to stay active, learn new skills, and enjoy social interactions. The U3A movement focuses on providing lifelong learning opportunities and activities for people in their ‘third age’ – a time of life when they are no longer in full-time employment or raising a family. For more information about U3A, please visit the Taunton U3A website.
