Our Tennis Coaches
Mark Airey at 'Tennis Aces Ltd' is our Head Coach and runs the Tennis programme and Committee requested members' activities.
Mark is an LTA Accredited+, level 4, Master Performance Coach. He recently celebrated over ten years at Knutsford Tennis Club. Mark offers members a varied coaching programme and 1-2-1 tuition.
Below he talks about his tennis philosophy :
"I have been involved in tennis since the age of 4 - after watching Boris Becker at Wimbledon. My dream of becoming a professional player tennis became reality in my late teens but unfortunately due to a back injury my hopes of becoming the next British Wimbledon champion was short lived, and I moved forward to pursue a career in coaching the game I love.
I've held a number of coaching positions, both in this country and abroad including the USA. Before my appointment at Knutsford Tennis Club, I had been the Head Coach at Bramhall Park Tennis Club, head of performance tennis at the David Lloyd club in Cheadle and the Head Coach of Alderley Edge Tennis Club.
I enjoy all aspects of the game and passing on my knowledge to anyone keen to learn. Whether you're a 4 year old picking up a racket for the first time, coming back to the game after playing as a teenager or an adult wanting to try a fun and exciting way to exercise, I can provide you with the experience and service to achieve your goal at Knutsford Tennis Club."
