Welcome to Breakpoint Tennis Academy @ Wychwoods Tennis Club
National Club Coach of the Year and Aegon County Club of the Year
Breakpoint Tennis Academy is run by Chris Hampton, Master Club Coach Level 5. Based in Oxfordshire, Chris has provided over 20 years of coaching to many schools, clubs and organisations.
Chris was awarded the Aegon National Club Coach award In 2015 for his efforts in increasing grass route participation and work, with gifted and talented players under his ace scheme.
Using the services of other self employed coaches, and support from a full time coaching administrator, Chris and the team offer a comprehensive and inclusive coaching programme for all ages and levels of players.
Coaching takes place at Wychwoods Tennis Club where they use their three artificial grass courts. They also use an indoor mini-tennis red court at the New Beaconsfield Hall, ajacent to the club courts.
To ensure we offer an outstanding coaching programme we will always try and offer a maximum ratio of 1 coach to 8 players in our beginner pathway to 1 coach - 6 players in our performance pathway.
Our team of coaches are all experienced and LTA qualified, hold up to date DBS checks and first aid certificates. We take the welfare and safeguarding of all our juniors and adults very seriously and have in place our own officer.
We share good practise and discuss player development at regular team meetings. Parents are welcome to meet their child’s coach to discuss their progress during our competition weeks 5 and 10 of term.
Competition weeks focus both on singles and doubles matchplay.
We follow our very own coaching curriculum to ensure successful player development. Players will work on every ball in each session, in particular the serve/return, groundstrokes and volleys although the overriding theme will have a tactical focus.
We use all the correct equipment for every session and expect all players to be wearing appropriate clothing and footwear. We will always make every effort to run sessions during inclement weather and in the unlikely event a session is cancelled we will always try and offer a make up group.
Chris and his team look forward to seeing you all on court soon.
