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. From 5 years old we will introduce the idea of scoring and competing. Our belief is this will give our players something tangible to measure their progress by and will provide the competitive stimulation lots of children need.
Of course basic technique is needed but by looking at the worlds top players, we can learn that there is more than one style to use.
During term time we have a competition week every three sessions. This lets us as coaches know where any weaknesses lie and our players see what they have achieved.
Our style of game based coaching means that whatever the level of player, they can see how it links to learning to play a match.
We believe playing a tennis match should be a regular experience so it becomes a less intense environment and provides a valuable tool for life.
Our camps will always be a fun environment but we never forget that our job is to improve our players’ tennis so any activity will have a (sometimes subtle) tennis theme. Nobody learns well in a stressful or boring situation so as a team of coaches our job is to encourage and provide a fantastic environment where players can both learn and enjoy.
