PEN-Y-FFORDD TENNIS CAMPS

SAFE. FUN. QUALITY COACHING

For ages 5-12



  • Mike is an extremely friendly and professional tennis coach. He is methodical in his approach and is constantly working on the fundamentals. He keeps sessions fun and they are never repetitive or boring. Mike also coaches my son and daughter aged 7 and 15.  He has great rapport with kids and always encourages them to play their best whilst, most importantly, having fun and enjoying the game.

  • My daughter has recently begun lessons with Mike. Despite her being super nervous and anxious about joining, Mike put her at ease and was really lovely with her. She had a fab time and looks forward to going each week. It’s done wonders for her confidence and she always comes out of the lesson absolutely buzzing! definitely recommend
