Whether your goal is to reach the world stage or simply build new skills, we have a program for you. Here’s six reasons why you should book in a trial with us today…

Learn to play tennis with a team of great coaches

Build your skills in a fun, friendly and welcoming environment. Our coaches are nationally accredited and often updating their skills/knowledge to provide the best sessions possible. We can tailor our classes to suit you and what you want from your tennis session.

A fabulous game for life

At the Helen Rice Tennis School we currently coach the children and grandchildren of some of our original clients. The whole family still gets together on the tennis court. Not to mention – some of our coaches are also second generation.

Family friendly and social

The Helen Rice Tennis School is a locally owned and operated family business. We offer programs for the whole family, and have countless ‘family’ clients – all family members engage in our programs. As we operate locally, it’s also a great way to meet people in local area and build community. We’re currently coaching some THIRD generation students, with now some second generation coaches.

Great for kids to be active and learn life skills

Our coaches teach kids how to play tennis, as well as other valuable coordination skills. Kids who have tennis lessons build their confidence while learning how to win and lose, etiquette, resilience, discipline and other life skills.

Get fit while having a blast!

The Helen Rice Tennis School offers many opportunities to get in shape. You can join a Cardio Tennis class to have a fun work out (building abs by laughing!!) and play tennis, while connecting with new friends. We can also offer high intensity private lessons, tailored to your fitness goals.


We offer classes 7 days a week, so we will always be able to find a time that suits! We tailor our classes to suit your individual needs and what you want from your tennis lesson.
Whether you are looking for kids tennis lessons or coaching for adults we have a program to suit your needs!


A big thanks to Helen Rice and the team of professional coaches at HRTS.  Both my boys thoroughly enjoy attending the school holiday clinics. Their tennis game has improved so…

A detailed overview of the Helen Rice Tennis School weather policy can be seen below.

It is essential that all lessons are run in a safe environment to ensure the safety of all members. As such all group lessons at Netherby and Denman will be run inside in the event of adverse weather.

Wet Weather:

Lessons will not be cancelled due to rain unless the coach deems the court to be unfit for play at the start of the lesson so we advise you to come to the courts at all times. Helen Rice Tennis School will conduct ALL  group sessions off court conducting invaluable video, agility and quiz/scoring sessions if the weather makes it unsuitable to play, with the exception of RED BALL AT NETHERBY TC ONLY as there isn’t enough room.

These wet weather sessions will happen once per term.

Hot Weather:

Please refer to the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) website the morning of your scheduled lesson when viewing the forecast temperature.

Lessons scheduled to end before, or at, 11:30am: Are on, regardless of forecast temperature (unless you hear otherwise from the HRTS office phone).

Lessons commencing after or scheduled to finish after 11:30am: If on the morning of the lesson, the forecast on the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) website at 7am is 30 degrees or more, the lessons will be rescheduled.

Make up lessons due to weather:

In the event that HRTS does cancel a lesson due to weather, we may offer a make-up lesson at our discretion either at another time during the week, or in the week immediately following end of term.

Be sure to follow the Helen Rice Tennis School Facebook for weather related lesson updates.
