What people are saying about Nick Williams Tennis:

Stuart Read - parent: 'Nick's technical expertise and ability to inspire children to enjoy training hard have quickly brought my son to the next level.  He is now able to compete at a regional level and is highly motivated to work on the goals Nick has set him in his own time' 

Sally Brayne, Deputy Head,  Market Drayton Junior School: 'Nick has delivered tennis sessions to the Year 4 children at Market Drayton Junior School during the summer term for the past four years. Nick's coaching was excellent every week; his subject knowledge and rapport with our pupils was great and he was very reliable and well organised.

Nick has excellent behavioural strategies while working with the children and he ensures the lessons are fun as well as technical. The children thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and their skills progressed greatly over the weeks. In addition, their confidence really built and they went from barely being able to hold a racket to enjoying simple rallies and keeping score for each other. 

He is very inspiring to both the students he teaches and the teachers who have worked with him during the sessions.  I would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone interested in tennis coaching.'

Matt and Claire Parkes - parents: 'We are so impressed with the rapid improvement of our daughters tennis.  Over a short period, Nick has transformed her game so that she is confident to serve and rally with consistency.  Nick shows incredible attention to detail on getting the basic rights and there is always time for fun too.  Thanks so much Nick'

Sam Scott, Headteacher, MD Infants:  'Nick has worked with Market Drayton Infant School for a number of years.  He has delivered after school clubs and staff training for tennis.  His work and professionalism in all of his delivery has been of very high quality and has had a significant impact on improving the standard of tennis delivered within the curriculum and as an after school club.  He is reliable, punctual and has been an inspiration to staff and children alike.  I would highly recommend him to work in any school or community group.'

Gerard Fletcher - parent:  'There is only one coach for us and that is Nick Williams. He has coached my 7 year old boy since October 2017 and to see the progress he has made within such a short period of time has been phenomenal.  He makes the lessons interesting for my son and always keeps us as parents constantly updated as to how we need to progress the lessons and what we need to do for my son to achieve his ambitions. Short and medium term goals are discussed as an ongoing process.  We wouldn’t use anyone else as the relationship between coach and child and coach and parent is so important to achieve and we can confidently say that we have achieved that relationship with Nick.'

Rose Ayikpah - parent: 'Nick has been an amazing coach to Gwen since he took over.  Gwen has developed in all areas of her tennis skills and recently won the 9U County Championships.  Nick has a massive knowledge about coaching and am happy to have him as Gwens trainer' 

Jane Smith - adult member: "Nick what a fabulous day yesterday thanks so much and please convey my thanks to Kris as well. This morning I wrote down some of the things I learnt. It was a heck of a lot. Now all I have to do is put it into practice! "
