Sunny's Coaching Technique & Philosophy:
He is not keen on “empty” courts when coaching and likes using teaching aids on court. Coaching tips of the week is his “little” obsession on the club’s notice board. He likes to give handouts to his students as often as possible. He also does racquet re-stringing and is very passionate about it. Sunny, known as the “trouble shooter”, is a great asset to any tennis club in the UK. His aim is simple: “I want you to have enjoyment while playing better tennis” so he says.
