Tennis Coaching

Tennis Coaching

The club enjoys the services of a full time tennis manager Gavin Henderson and Wimbledon hero Marcus Willis.  Also leading GB senior players Jenny Waggott and Jackie Robinson. The performance squads are run by Cameron Malik, Mason Recci and Steve Hayward. They are supported part-time by Harry Green, Funsho Ajibade, Soumeya Anane and Richard Napier who provide coaching and advice to members throughout the year.

Tennis can be enjoyed by people who have never had any coaching, but with coaching it can be enjoyed so much more. Junior members in particular can benefit from regular guidance and honing of technique - this is particularly important for those that are still growing.

We have a full schedule of coaching and events for all players to take part in and enjoy. Group and or individual coaching is available, helping you to improve and enjoy your tennis even more
