Who are we?
Over 300 children played for free since 2021!
G-Tennis coaches Catherine & Chris feel very passionately about making Tennis available to everyone at an affordable cost, regardless of age, class, gender and race.
After seeing the effects of Covid on some of the kids we teach, we wanted to do something positive for the local community. We started our Sponsor a child programme with the sole purpose of creating more opportunities for kids to play at an affordable price. We started fundraising and have raised nearly £15000 already. All this money has gone to providing either free or heavily subsidised coaching to local kids and a few adults too! We are very proud to partner with The Cheer Trust and the Big Kid Foundation and through these links have unearthed some amazing talent including a girl now in the county squad!
We believe in creating the appropriate environment for every type of session. Our schools & mini Tennis are fun and vibrant, whilst our adult classes are sociable with emphasis on having good technique & improving tactical understanding. We are big believers in TEACHING (often overlooked!), TRAINING & COACHING at the correct stages of learning.
TEACHING - Getting fundamental technique right in the early stages of learning. Developing coordination, balance and creating an athlete being at the forefront of our sessions.
TRAINING - Consolidating techniques through repetition and tactically relevant drills.
COACHING - Developing tactical understanding through more match play and appreciating the psychological demands of the game.
