A little about me
I aim to share my passion for tennis / experience with as many children and adults as i possibly can by using the coaching knowledge that i learnt by been part of a highly successful coaching programme/tennis club for one and a half years.in the beginning of 2019 i began taking over the role of introducing a junior and adult coaching programme to two Tennis clubs . My aim is to offer Tennis coaching to those of any age or ability from those who may of played many years ago and are looking to get back into your tennis or those who are complete beginners and wish to give the great game of tennis a go.here is a little breakdown of of what we offer to both children and adults on a weekly basis , tennis tots (ages 3-6 years) mini tennis (ages 6-10 years) ( junior tennis ages 10-18 years)
Ladies morning, Rusty rackets ,Adult drills, adult cardio for adults. as well as this we also offer individual lessons for those wanting to improve there tennis at a faster rate and holiday camps every school half term running from 9am-4.30pm.
new session lauching spring 2020 - a mums and child well being class. This class means that the parents of the child will be coached on one court whilst the pre schooler-tots will be coached on the other court. the idea of this is that mums can socialise ands have a great time with there freinds whilst there child is enjoying playing tennis on the court next door and not having to worry about child care. more details of this new session will follow shortly.
ideally players attending our junior and adult programmes should be a member of the tennis club. more info with a link provided to the club website will be availble soon.
Tennis programme progression at Alne Tennis club and Rowntree park Tennis club.
in the next month or so before the tennis season really beggins to kick in i will be going in to some school within the catchment area of rowntree park tennis club and alne primary school to share my passion that i have had since i was a child with hopefully the next generation of british tennis players. this will be done by offering free taster classes and putting a tennis racket in a childs hand that wouldent have otherise.
In April we are going to host internal competitions and both clubs which is the foundation for children to gain experience and confidence of competing against other kids of a similar age.after this children can then progress to mini tennis competitions that are hosted all over the uk on a regular basis.
mum and pre schoolers/ tennis tots tennis programme
the idea of this class is that children from 2-5 years old can start there tennis journey as early as possible, this session is designed that the children can learn the basic movements,fundamentals, racket skills , hand eye coordination skills as early as possible so this prepars them for a long and succesfil time playing tennis.
Once children have completed the mums and child well being programme they will then progress onto our tennis tots programme that is for children 3-5 years old. The stage after that is for children to move onto our tennis for kids tennis programme at both clubs, this session is for children 4-11 years old who may have little tennis experience and just fancy giving tennis a go for 6 weeks. once completion of this courese they will progress onto our mini tennis and junior tennis programme.
