SLTC - We Coach Tennis (WCT)

Message to all members and non-members regarding changes to our coaching contract.

Stone Lawn Tennis & Squash Club have brought about a change to our coaching contract from 'SMASH Tennis' to 'We Coach Tennis'. They will retain the services of Matt Chandler who will now work with 'We Coach Tennis' to deliver the coaching programme. This will commence Thursday 1st February 2024 with a seamless transition.

We assure existing recipients of the coaching programme that coaching will continue and we will do everything we can to deliver a professional coaching programme through 'We Coach Tennis' and believe that this will bring long term benefits to our tennis club, members and non-members alike.

I personally wish to provide a warm welcome to both Will Toft and Tim Bryant and I am confident that they will bring a wealth of experience to our club.

Please see below for a brief introduction from Will & Tim themselves. Note if you have any queries all replies to this email will automatically be forwarded to them at

Yours sincerely,

Paul Baldwin (SLTC President)


A message from WeCoachTennis: 

Hello All Members, 

'We Coach Tennis' would like to introduce ourselves as the new coaching team for Tennis at Stone Lawn Tennis & Squash Club with effect from 1st February 2024.

We would like to reassure everybody that all junior and adult group sessions will be continuing as usual and we are planning to expand these groups very soon.  

We are William Toft and Tim Bryant. We plan to share our enthusiasm and expertise introducing new sessions, plus more socials and individual coaching at Stone.

Will is an LTA level 3 accomplished coach of 10 years, with experience working with juniors and adults from beginners to performance players. Having been a Junior at Stone for 10 years himself, competing at County, Regional and National levels, he looks forward to putting back into the community he grew up in and sharing his knowledge of the sport. Will is dedicated to providing Tennis for all, with years of experience at all ability and disabled levels.

Tim is also an LTA level 3 coach and has 22 years experience working with all ages and abilities. With a passion for development in junior and adult coaching, Tim has established and delivered multiple successful Tennis programmes, groups and camps alongside developing individuals abilities through his 1 to 1 coaching. Tim has a number of juniors in the County squad and recently began working with the NHS to provide sports sessions to boost mental health.

We will be changing the coaching part of the Club website shortly to reflect these changes.
