A few years ago Denisa started her coaching journey in England in our tennis club alongside Simon Thomas while gaining Level 1 and Level 2 qualification; she has since qualified at  level 3.

Providing coaching for players of all ages and abilities in a fun and welcoming environment while putting the players and their needs at the heart of everything she does.

Coach - Mike Lewis - Beginners, Rusty Returners and Improvers.  


Mike has been playing tennis consistently from when he was 11 years old - a time of wooden racquets and white balls. He played for his school, university and various clubs in local leagues over the years, as well as national, regional and inter-county Competitions and still plays competitively and continues to represent Gloucestershire seniors.

He has a level 2 coaching qualification from the LTA which includes DBS criminal check and safeguarding training. His aim is to bring passion and enjoyment of the game; he is available to offer various options, depending on the state of your game. Although Mike has restricted availability this summer, he is able to offer ad-hoc coaching to bespoke individuals or small groups.


For example:

  • you may be a rusty returner looking to refresh and improve your strokes and game play
  • maybe there is something in particular you wish to work on through specific coached practice or drills, with someone to feed consistent balls and offer guidance  
  • more advanced players may be looking for matchplay and tactics.

Mike hopes to have the opportunity to help you to achieve your tennis goals. He is generally during daytime, evening or Saturday afternoons during the season, depending on court and diary availability.
