TENNIS COACHING TESTIMONIALS
“Over the years my husband and children have been members of several sports clubs and this one is by far the most family focused and friendly club we have joined. We have always felt very comfortable letting my children be at the club without us as it feels like she is a member of a large extended family”.
“It is such a wonderful club. There is so much going on and all very inclusive. I am not in the first blush of youth! It is a great place for someone like myself in the second half of their 70s and others members even older than me”.
“Graham understands the level that is required to be a good club player and it’s important to have some fun as well”.
“Graham runs a fabulous ladies tennis morning on a Monday where ladies from all backgrounds join in and fully enjoy enormously Graham’s banter and coaching tips.”
“The club and coaching attitudes have developed a fantastic community, creating a safe and fun environment”.
