Blandford Tennis Academy
is run by Head Coach Simon Kevern, alongside Club Coach Ben Joy. Over the past four years they have been developing junior tennis in Blandford, both in the club and in school, with their coaches running sessions at every primary school in the Blandford School pyramid as well as the Blandford School itself. They run weekly sessions in six of the schools during term time. They have been one of the area leaders in the LTA team Challenge competition with their events featured in Ace Magazine, as well as one of the venues delivering the ‘Tennis for Kids’ programme.
In 2018 they finished in the top three shortlisted for LTA Dorset club of the year.
