About the coaching team
Newton Tennis (https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/NewtonTennis), formerly Gateshead Tennis, have agreed to take over all our coaching. Jonathan (LTA level 4 coach) has been associated with Blaydon Tennis Club for more than 20 years. He, along with assistant coach Ian Pearson-Brown (LTA level 3 coach), has a wealth of experience in successfully delivering high quality Tennis coaching to juniors and adults.
£30 per hour. Both are fully licensed, DBS covered and are trained to deliver sessions safely with the minimum of risk of infection spread.
To take up this opportunity you need to do two things:
1. Send a text on Jonathan on 07970167234 or Ian on 07852898799 to register your interest.
2. We cannot use communal coaching equipment to conduct lessons safely so you would need to purchase some age appropriate tennis balls online. Cheap balls available at Decathlon and Sports Direct. Higher quality balls at Zsig.
As a minimum guide, 2 doz tennis balls cost around £20-£25 which you can bring to each lesson. I'd recommend you do this quickly as we expect there to be high demand and operate on a first come first served basis. Jonathan sells tubes of four Slazenger Wimbledon balls for £5.
We can start as soon your tennis balls arrive.
COVID-19 lockdown (as at 1st July 2020)
The latest LTA guidelines now allows small group coaching, up to 6 people ( 5 + 1 coach) , meaning Jonathan (level 4) and Ian (level 3) are available to coach any age and ability, under strict social distancing conditions.
£30 per hour. Both are fully licensed, DBS covered and are trained to deliver sessions safely with the minimum risk of infection spread.
