The Coaching Team

Frome Selwood Tennis Coaching Team from 13th April 2019

The club has decided to award the coaching contract to Team Bath from Bath University on April 13th 2019. This decision should give our juniors the opportunity of working with one of the top four tennis development centres in the UK. It is felt that this will give them new opportunities on court and off court to build their confidence, tennis performance and leadership abilities.
