Providing tennis coaching to the community

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 including the AELTC and North Oxford LTC. Chris combines his role as Head Coach at Wychwoods with coaching at Kingham Hill School, National Tennis Centre and AELTC where he is involved with their Wimbledon Junior Tennis Initative.

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. He  was also awarded Oxon LTA Club Coach of the year 2019 for work involving setting up and delivering schools tennis in Oxford City.

Using the services of other coaches, and support from a full time coaching administrator, Chris and  team offer a comprehensive and inclusive term time, holiday coaching programme for all ages and levels of players.  We also provide bespoke packages for groups of up to 4 players and indiviudal lessons. Where possible, we can also provide coaching at private houses.

Coaching takes place at Wychwoods Tennis Club using their 3 artificial courts and indoor mini-tennis red court at the New Beaconsfield Hall, ajacent to the club courts. During the darker months the outdoor programme moves to Kingham Hill School where we use our portable lighting.  We also have a number of adult and junior sessions running at Kingham Hill School where we use their 4 hard courts and sports centre indoors for mini tennis.

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 at the club a safeguarding officer.

Our coaching programme is second to none, providing an excellent environment to learn, score, rally and compete.  Why not arrange an appointment to meet  Head Coach Chris to discuss your tennis needs for yourself or family?

We look forward to seeing you on court soon.
