Coaching

My name is Akos Szabo, PTR and LTA accredited tennis coach. I've been running the coaching programme at Alfold Tennis Club for the past couple of years and I'm also established in a coaching programme at another high profile club. At both clubs we follow the Lawn Tennis Association and Professional Tennis Registry guidelines in junior and adult development.

Here at Alfold Tennis Club we cater for all age groups and abilities, and offer juniors and adults, group or individual sessions. If you haven't played before or are just picking up the racket again, this is the place for you. I like to approach every player as a unique individual, therefore all the drills are personalised for you, to help you to perform your very best on court.

My assistant coach Toma Ogawa is LTA accredited himself (with a 5.1 LTA player rating) and is available as a hitting partner.
