The LTA Head Coach of our club is Gavin Fowell.  The team offer a wide range of activities for all ages and abilities.  

Junior Coaching

Our junior programme led by Gavin caters for

  • Mini Red for players 8 and under (U8)
  • Mini Orange for players 9 and under (U9)
  • Mini Green for players 10 and under (U10)
  • Junior yellow ball tennis for 11 and over

Programmes are split into three levels:

  • development
  • fast track
  • performance pathway

depending on the ability of the player.  Higher ability players commit themselves to training 2, 3 or 4 times a week, combining one or more group lessons with one or more individual lessons.  Each child's programme is tailored to the player after discussion with the player and the parents.

Adult Coaching

We offer an adult programme for all abilities. Whether you are a beginner or advanced player there is something for you. Sessions are run on a Monday evening and Friday morning.

We run sessions for beginners which introduces players to the full game of tennis, so they can get started quickly, and join some of the other coaching sessions.

More experienced players are catered for with individual coaching (mainly for technical work), or targetted coaching in smaller groups for tactical play.
