Our Coaching Methods
Learn with the Best
When you send your child to learn a sport go to a reputable and credible source for sports coaching. Tennis England’s methods work because children learn how to learn which results in them mastering tennis more easily, more quickly and with better results.
The Learning Revolution
We have developed an all-in-one system called the Learning Revolution for enhancing the learning of tennis. Our Learning Revolution method of coaching is based on research from the field of Accelerated Learning. Central to our approach is the idea of ‘learnacy’ which is the process of learning to learn. By teaching children how to learn and not what to learn they gain “awareness” and are able to take “responsibility” for their learning. Interwoven within our weekly courses and camps is a “learning cycle” that guarantees greater enjoyment and success for your child.
Our coaching has significantly enhanced thousands of children’s tennis. In short, our coaching produces results and that is why we have a unique money back guarantee. If your child is not playing much better tennis within six weeks, you can take advantage of this.
Children in classes with low teacher-student ratios gain lasting benefits in performance. We guarantee small, high quality groups with low teacher to student ratios of 1:6 or 1:4 by arrangement so that your child receives the individual attention they need.
Different Strokes for Different Folks
We recognize that each child is unique and has different needs. Thus, the cornerstone of our coaching is to find out what works best for you and to adapt our coaching so that you learn tennis easily. We are against the traditional correctional and prescriptive approach of fitting beautiful round circles into square pegs. We believe the best way to learn is by finding the right way for you to learn.
Streaming of Groups
All groups are streamed so that children are playing at the right level. Although we are careful not to label a child according to their current ability, we believe it is important that children learn tennis in a challenging environment that is fun. Children at a higher level need to be challenged and whereas a less experienced child needs to master basic skills with a greater emphasis on fun and confidence building.
