Sport Starz Ltd is a sports activity company set up by Gareth Coombes and Michael Trotter.

We both have a number of years experience in coaching children and adults of all ages and abilities. We run an in-depth tennis program, private individual tennis coaching lessons, pre school tennis and football sessions, children’s birthday parties, children’s dodgeball camps and lessons, an adult dodgeball corporate league and a popular holiday activity club.


If you're looking for a sports & social event for you and your colleagues we can organise and run a variety of events. These can consist of one-off sporting events or multi-sport days with the option to include catering.


We provide junior coaching in a fun social enviroment with many team building dodgeball activities. Our adult social league gives a great opportunity for adults to let off some steam after work and get active with friends in a great ball frenzy sport.

Tennis Coaching

Sportstarz run an extremely successful adult and junior programme. We aim to provide a very enjoyable experience in a laid back enviroment from beginner to advance level. We offer group and private one to one classes.

Children's Birthday Parties

We organise and run birthday parties for children at weekends to take the stress away from you. Our parties include traditional, multi-sport, pirate, army and many more variations!

Holiday Clubs

Why not send your child to our holiday club? We provide a fun and active childcare which involves a wide range of fun activities from sports to arts & crafts.

Pre-School Sports

Our pre-school tennis & football sessions are designed to improve your child's motor and social skills. There are so many skills in life that we take for granted that have yet to be learned by our children.

A big thank you to you all. My daughter has absolutely loved her two days at Sport Starz and is very upset that she isn't booked anymore this summer!

Thank you so much for organising my son Herbie’s nerf battle party yesterday. They all had an amazing time. They loved building the forts ready for the battle. I do think you guys, Gareth & Michael, had more fun than the kids
