from monday june 8th i will be running adult tennis classes again . this will be done to comply with the lta and the goverment rules by having myself and 5 players on court at any one time with complying with social distancing rules. 

we have decided not to offer summer camps to children this summer but we are contining with the junior programme on saturdays with myself 9am-1pm. because of the demand i have put on extra classes 4-6 pm on fridays which there are a few places left . i will offer more junior coaching on other evenings so please dont feel you are left out.


we are delighted how both the adult and junior programme has grown massivly  since we  first took over in april 2019. during that time we have seen lots of children enjoying there tennis classes and have developed strong school links at the following schools.

scarcroft primary school

knavesmire primary school 

milthorpe secondary school

all saints secondary school

our queen of martys primary school

steiner school

fishergate primary school

st georges primary school






whilst in the summer months the childrens tennis classes are £30 for a block of 6 lessons in the winter months we will up the price by a £1 so it will be £36 for a 6 week this is simply to cover the costs of  indoor hire facilites to keep the children playing tennis all year round.

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.

school tennis

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 succesfull 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.
