"There's no substitute for a good beginning"  Vic Braden

At Kinetic Tennis Coaching we begin with how to learn to play tennis.  We put the player at ease with making mistakes, positively encouraging them to make them; to think objectively; to challenge themselves in finding solutions.

When a player makes a mistake in practice or an unforced error occurs during a match,  they need to recognise 'why' and 'how' it happened in order to  make the necessary adjustments to keep the ball in play.

Challenging exercises and games that promote racket control, body awareness and efficient swing technique, make up the majority of our coaching sessions. Fun, Challenging, Rewarding Practice.

The better the technique, the better the strategy, the more fun had! Connect with Kinetic Tennis Coaching via Facebook here

Chuck Ridyard of Ashford Rackets & Restringing provides a full restringing service for all members. From £20 per racket for a standard restring; drop your racket off with 1 of our coaches and it will be collected from the club on a Wednesday and returned to the club the following Wednesday.


All Junior Coaching Sessions are lead by Head Coach, Chris Matthews. Please let the coaches know ASAP if you cannot attend as this helps us with the planning of each session.
