The Coaching Team:
"Some may say that sport and coaching runs in the family but I didn't actually have the confidence and motivation to start coaching properly until my early twenties. Sport, and in particularly tennis, has played a massive part in my life but my motivation now comes from giving back to the community and advocating access for all. Its heart warming to know you are able to bring something different and potentially enriching to someone or a place who would not usually access it."
"I have played tennis since the age of 6 and have been coaching and assisting tennis sessions for a total of 8 years. I am enthusiastic, bubbly and energetic! The best part of being a coach for me is seeing the progress and improvement that all players make whilst taking part in my lessons and seeing their confidence grow."
"Playing tennis competitively for club has grown my confidence in taking up coaching. Overtime, my qualifications and experience when working with children has made it easier for me to pass on my passion to engage children and help them grow their love for physical activity. It's great to see them develop their skills and knowledge."
"I would describe myself as a tennis enthusiast and have been playing the game for over 25 years. For many years I have been providing tennis lessons informally to complete beginners to intermediates and lately I have been providing coaching assistance support with Slough Tennis Club. As a former teacher nothing gives me the buzz more than seeing my students improve. In my book, everyone is capable of learning something."
"I first picked up a racket at Slough Indoor Tennis Centre when I was about 4 years old and always attended tennis camps there with my family and friends. I then started playing regularly for my school and from that point I wanted to start coaching. I did my Level 1 at Roehampton University and got some coaching experience at Windsor Tennis Club, where I have also been playing since I left school."
