OUR COACHES

Our award-winning coaching team run an expansive, fun coaching programme which offers something for everyone, whatever your age, level or ambitions.

They believe in making tennis fun and accessible to everyone and bring passion, motivation and their love for the game to every session on and off the court. If they are not on court they are generally climbing mountains with tennis nets and rackets on their backs, taking road trips to support Great Britain in the Davis Cup or visiting clubs and academies around the world to further hone their skills.
