Coaching Testimonials

I have been a member at the club for 2+ years, never played tennis before.  Simon is a very engaging coach; he has a real passion for what he does teaching my whole family.  I can now play tennis to an Intermediate level and have represented the club, playing matches. Simon has given me the tools to do that, not only technique but confidence and court know-how.


My husband, children and I have all been privileged to have had coaching with Gemma. She’s a natural teacher: empathetic; kind; observant and incredibly encouraging. She accurately analyses our play and provides clear instruction on how to improve. She’s clearly passionate about tennis, both playing and watching,  as this shines through her engaging and fun sessions.


I have used Roy Richardson for advanced one-to-one coaching for around 7 years now, improving both my doubles and especially my singles play. Before an injury hit in 2019, I managed to top the singles ladder at a David Lloyd club locally to Chorleywood - a large part of this success is due to the level of tennis coaching and tennis mentoring I have received from Roy. Sessions with Roy are also an excellent cardio and conditioning workout too.


I joined in September after having had a couple of lessons with Steve Shea. The club has proved to be very friendly and welcoming with tennis available for all standards. It has been easy to become part of the club and the many social tennis activities make being a member even more fun. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone considering joining.
