Annual Registration

Please note the registration fee is charged once off annually (every year). It is compulsory for all students, the only time students will not be charged a registration fee is when starting in November or December

All-inclusive in the registration fee

Every student will receive a TFL t-shirt and cap, as well as progress reports and certificates. This also includes the worksheets used on rainy day tennis done indoors, as well as their self-assessment worksheets.  You will also get regular updates of upcoming events.


The purpose of the t-shirts and caps are to build confidence and team moral. We want the students to feel as if they are part of something larger then themselves to instil vision and an internal motivation and purpose. Building our students self-esteem is one of our high priorities as we believe we are building future leaders and their confidence in themselves is the foundation to any success.

The certificates and progress reports; we believe anything you cannot measure is not worth your while. In so we find it important for the students to understand the different levels they need to work through (A step by step guide).

Indoor /rainy day worksheets, a vital part of a student’s development. These are general knowledge questionnaires, history and rules of tennis for the younger students and moving more into the psychology and self-assessments, strategies and tactics for the older students.

Fee structure and formulas:


Private Venues and Tennis Clubs

  • Fees are billed 12 months out of the year
  • Lessons run throughout the year being a full 12 month cycle, only period we close is generally 10thDec-10thJan (4 weeks).
  • You will notice that the months with 5 weeks you are not charged extra.
  • 5 months out of a 12 month cycle there are 5 weeks, this is to cover the 4 weeks we close in December and the odd day that you lessons fall on a public holiday. If your lessons fall on more than one public holiday please arrange with your coach for a catch up lesson.
  • We unfortunately can only allow a pro-rata rate in December when joining or starting lessons in November and December.
  • No Annual registration will be charged in November and December

Example:  45min group lesson R650 per month

R650 ÷ (4 weeks) =  R162 (Cost per lesson)

Private Schools

  • Fees are billed 12 months out of the year
  • Lessons are run to the same calendar and system as the private schools. So there will be No lessons during the private school holidays and public holidays.
  • There is +- 38 weeks in a private school year (3 and 4 Term schools).
  • We unfortunately can only allow a pro-rata rate in December when joining or starting lessons in November and December.
  • No Annual registration will be charged in November and December

Example: 45min group lesson R510 per month

R510 X (12 months in a year) ÷ (38 weeks in private school year) = R161 (Cost per lesson)

The general consensus all round was that this structure makes life a lot easier for budgeting purposes

Dear Parents and Players,

We have very testing times upon us! As per our presidents state of address last night, we will all be under a national lock down for 21 days.

As a nation, as a country, as one world, we all share, we are being asked to fight COVID-19 together!

With immediate effect all lessons will be frozen, we will all have until Thursday night 12pm to prepare for a full lockdown.

The tennis coaching is your coaches sole form of income to support his family and children, we are asking for your continued support during this period.

Therefore we will continue invoicing you, your coach will keep record of all lessons missed during this period and we will hold various tennis clinics to make up for all lessons missed, once the lock down has been lifted at no extra cost!

Your support during this period will make a huge difference between all small businesses being able to survive this and still hopefully be able to continue their services in the future!
