Meet our Head Coach - Dave Gardner 
A Lifelong Member of Grove Lawn Tennis Club

My main intentions are to project enthusiasm and a love for the game. I am a dedicated tennis coach with a focus on club-level players. With a background in club tennis myself, I understand the unique dynamics and challenges faced by recreational players.

Having played and coached extensively at the club level, I have a deep appreciation for the social and competitive aspects that make club tennis a vibrant community. My firsthand experience allows me to relate to players of varying skill levels and backgrounds.

I am committed to helping club players improve their skills and confidence on the court. My coaching sessions prioritise fundamental techniques, game strategies, and effective drills tailored to the needs of players looking to enhance their game.

I believe that tennis is not just a sport but a community-building activity. I actively encourage camaraderie among club members and invite them to events that foster a sense of belonging. My approach emphasises not only individual improvement but also the joy of playing tennis together.

Passionate about instilling a love for tennis, I work to create an environment where players can enjoy the game and have fun while learning. My coaching style is marked by positivity, encouragement, and a genuine desire to see players thrive in their tennis journey.
