Coaching Tennis


Tennis Coaching Timetable

From August 2013 here at Highworth Tennis club we have had a restructuring of our coaching set up. Our Head Coach, Mark Thomas, is stepping back from the front line and will maintain more of a watching brief over a newly formed team which will be led by our new Senior Coach, Simon Hennell. Simon is a fully registered LTA coach.

Highworth Tennis Club junior members have their own club session every Saturday morning from 10:00am to 12:00pm.

Historically the majority of slightly older junior members that come to the Saturday morning sessions have enjoyed just having access to the facilities and organise themselves in combinations of doubles, singles and drills. Three of the courts will therefore remain available to these members, who will continue to enjoy these benefits free as part of their membership.

Simon will be planning to look at the other coaching courses on offer and will plan and adapt these according to demand and requirement so please let him know as soon as possible if any of your children wish to take advantage of these various courses. There are additional costs for coaching courses.

Further sessions and times can be made available subject to demand.

The coaches are also available to book for individual or group lessons for both our adult and junior members and can be contacted direct to organise this.

Please contact Simon Hennell on 07834 088 038 or via email: simon.hennell@btinternet.com for anything and everything to do with coaching and if he cannot help you personally he will put you in touch with the appropriate member of our coaching team.
