We have an extensive coaching programme at the club which runs from Monday through to Saturday throughout the year. Our main coaching team has two coaches, Neil Watts and Elliot Kami. Neil is LTA Level 4 qualified, and Elliott is an experienced Level 3 coach, and currently working towards Level 4. Our committee lead for coaching, Hilda Moore, is also a qualified coach.

He also played internationally but has spent the majority of his time in Wiltshire teaching at various locations but primarily at the Delta Centre, having also formed the Wiltshire Academy where he developed the junior base of tennis talent for the county amongst other coaching achievements. Neil has experience in all coaching from fun junior camps and weekly sessions, through high performance training, cardio, tactics and adult coaching of all levels, and has experience of developing both players and other coaches.
