We offer a comprehensive coaching programme - there are great opportunities for both juniors and adults to learn and to improve their skills. We aim to offer coaching for all levels of player. Our junior programme has both group development and performance sessions so that we can cater for both juniors who want to be the next Andy Murray and others who just want to have fun on court.
We have designed our junior programme in line with the LTA Youth programme. Players will play and learn together in a safe and fun environment; we want everyone to develp great tennis skills. For the latest junior coaching timetable see here.
For adults, we offer Cardio Tennis (a fun session of tennis drills and play to music - great way to keep your fitness level up); Tennis Xpress - a 6 week programme for adult beginners/returners; Tennis Xpress2 - an improvers course to build on/grow experience; and team coaching and drills for more experienced players.
Our coaches also offer private individual lessons.
To deliver these programmes we have a great coaching team:
Head Coach Emily Wharton has been with us for several years and has done great work in developing what we offer. At the same time as continuing to develop her own coaching credentials (she is now a Level 4 coach, Suffolk LTA She Rallies Ambassador and an LTA Coach Education Tutor) she has also helped many of us (both junior and adult) to improve our on court ability. She does this through great communications skills, stong technical knowledge and a fun sense of humour.
Coach - currently under recruitment
We also love to develop our junior players to take on more - we offer a Tennis Leaders programme and help 'older', interested juniors to take their Level 1 and Level 2 LTA coaching qualifications. We are delighted that junior club member Ellie Budds is currently working with us as a Level 1 coach.
