Our adult coaching is provided by Rachel Apsey, an LTA accredited coach.

Rachel has many years experiece as a professional coach & has also captained England at the Four Nations  and represented Great Britain as a player for many years. She has also regularly been selected to captain the Somerset team for her age group.

Rachel provides coaching for all abilities, both group and individuals. Her regular group sessions are on Thursdays at 1.00pm presently held at Ilminster Tennis Club as we are currently unable to generate sufficient players for a session at SSG TC. Private lessons can be arranged directly with Rachel.

Our Junior coaching was provided by Luke Andrews & Dan Smith of LA Tennis, both LTA accredited coaches. These sessions held on a Saturday have now been suspended until around Easter time as no coach is currently available.


Meanwhile Rachel's junior group sessions are held at Ilminster TC every Saturday - 0900-100 for 4-6 years + Beginners; and 1000-1100 for ages 7-15 years + Intermediates. This course runs until the end of the spring school term finishing on 23rd March 2024 (excluding 17th February), but any new young players are welcome to join mid-course for £8 per lesson. 

if there is sufficient interest it is hoped that junior coaching can recommence at SSG around Easter.
