On Mondays straight after school we are visited by experienced LTA Licensed tennis coaches, Adrian Joly and Ian Cooper for a session on Mini tennis and ball skills. Adrian is Head coach at the Weybridge Lawn Tennis Club and he and Ian between them have a wealth of experience in helping children to develop racquet and ball skills.
This club is very popular and we have seen many success stories including former pupil Bethan Hayward who started her tennis with Adrian in our playground and has won the much prized tennis scholarship at St George’s College last year as well as being the U/12 Runner up in the Surrey Championships this summer! We look forward to following her progress with interest.
Girls and boys of all abilities are very much welcomed at these sessions and those demonstrating an aptitude for the game are often invited to become further involved in the sport and join in the strong junior club programme that Adrian runs at the tennis club.
Any questions relating to these sessions at Manby Lodge or on the programmes that are on offer at the club can be directed to Adrian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
