"Tennis is my passion and I care deeply about the game and helping others to improve. My coaching philosophy is based on ensuring the players have fun and enjoy my lessons. I deliver lessons for both large and small groups of all ages. I also specialise in one to one coaching for players of all ages and abilities."

Summer Adult Coaching

From Thursday 16th June until September, 7pm – 8pm

These sessions are designed to improve your tennis skills and more importantly, be a fun way for you to enjoy tennis in a group setting. Each week Tony will be focussing on a particular shot and/or tactic. Below are the lesson themes. In addition to these, Tony will incorporate group warm up games and point play, to ensure players are moving around and enjoying a bit a light competition.

Week 1: Effective baseline play for doubles

Week 2: Hitting with topspin

Week 3: Volleys & Smashes

Week 4: Interceptions at the net

Week 5: The serve and return

Week 6: The Slice Backhand

Sessions cost £9 per person per week, payable by cash or BACS transfer directly to Tony. In order to make these sessions viable we will need at least four attendees each week, so please do let Tony know if you intend on coming each week.
