Meet the Team
We have three full-time coaches plus numerous coaching assistants, most of whom have come up through the coaching programme themselves. Find out a bit more about each of us below!
Ollie Fry, Head Coach & Director
Ollie has been coaching for over 16 years and is the owner of Teach Me Tennis. Having worked in a variety of different environments, from big commercial centres to more performance based roles, Ollie's dream was always to have something to run his own way.
Ollie is a fully qualified and licensed LTA coach and has numerous other qualifications in tennis coaching. Here is how Ollie described his coaching life:
Ever since I realised I wasn't quite as talented as Andre Agassi I have always wanted to be a tennis coach. From the start of my career I tried to expose myself to as many different sessions, coaches and players as possible and consider myself really lucky to have worked with some great mentors and colleagues.
I love the sense of achievement in helping players reach their goals at all ability levels and the variation we see at the club is such a fun and ever-changing challenge.
Together with our fantastic staff and loyal client base, I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved so far and cannot wait to see what we can do in the future.
Louise Fry - Director & Head of Communications
Andy Lee, Assistant Head Coach
Andy has been with us from the start and is a hugely popular member of our team. He is a fantastic coach as well as being men's captain for the club.
A word from the man himself:
Hi, my name is Andy and I’ve worked as a Tennis Coach at Peppard Tennis Club for 10 years. I have enjoyed playing tennis since I was 12, and I’ve captained the men’s first team for four years. I have been a part of the Teach Me Tennis team since the start and have thoroughly enjoyed working with such inspiring and driven colleagues. My favourite part of coaching is increasing confidence in all players. I enjoy teaching all ages and the individual challenges that come with each player. My least favourite part of coaching is probably the tan lines...
Charlie Winnett, Coach
Charlie joined our team in September 2020 and has made a big impact on our players and coaches alike. He is enthusiastic and knowledgeable and we love how his experience of living in America has helped him develop. Here's what he had to say:
Hello, my name is Charlie Winnett and I am 24 years old. I've played tennis since I was five years old and loved every minute of it. I worked with children since I was 17. When I was 21, I got a scholarship to play tennis in America. I just graduated this December with a degree in psychology. I joined Peppard in September while I was finishing my degree online. I can't wait to have a full term of coaching without Covid interrupting it!
How we coach
Our passion is making tennis more of a sport than a hobby. We try to make everyone actually play tennis, not just learn to hit a ball.
