Duncan Coates

Hi, my name is Duncan Coates I am a tennis coach working across a number of different  venues including Netherseale, Newton Solney and Newton Regis Tennis Clubs.

I was named Derbyshire Development coach of the year in 2024 as part LTA Tennis Awards and nominated for the Paul Huchkins Commitment Award in 2023.

I am LTA Level 4 Accredited Plus Senior Coach and have been playing tennis since the age of 5. I began studying for my coaching qualifications at the age of 16, completing my level 3 at 21 and level 4 at 32.

I have coached all ages and abilities from those as young as 3 to adults in both group and individual lessons. I have completed training in disability tennis, fitness and movement,  sport physiology, cardio tennis and LTA Youth Coaching.

In 2023 tennis coaching was award the LTA Youth Recognised Venue status in recognition for adopting and delivering the junior programme to the highest standard. This is a status that only a handful of venues in the whole of the midlands has received.. 

My passion in tennis coaching is seeing players of all abilities enjoying their time spent on the court and helping them reach their potential whatever level that might be.
