What is mentoring?   Mentoring is a different experience for different people. Whether you engage in on-court or off-court sessions, on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis, setting this time aside for your personal and professional development, will take you on a journey of exploration and self-discovery. There’s no right or wrong way to approach mentoring and each block of sessions is delivered in a bespoke manner to fit your needs as a unique individual or group.

Who is mentoring for? I can design a bespoke mentoring programme that meets your individual or group needs. Whether you’re new to coaching, have an established business or involved with Education, I can tailor sessions to meet your needs.

Why Choose Me as Your Mentor? As well being a Level 5 Tennis Coach with 25 years of experience and an LTA Qualified Tutor, I’ve also delivered at National Coaching Conferences. However, I have found that when I tutor groups or mentor individuals, that this really ignites my passion in helping others achieve their goals. See ‘About Us’ for more info.

Tennis Coaches & Tennis Business’

You may be a young coach looking for direction, wanting to improve your tennis playing ability or coaching skills. Equally you may be an established independent coaching business looking to take your programme to the next level. Either way one to one mentoring could help you achieve your goals.

Further & Higher Education Students

Improve your tennis playing skills, improve your coaching knowledge or get your sports mindset and motivational skills maximised. Sports Coaching or Sports Science degree students can benefit from my mentoring sessions which can help young people and adults to goal set, improve mindset, achieve and maintain focus and develop your tennis technique.

Become a Tennis Leader

This course is designed for young people aged 13-16yrs who would like to use their tennis skills to help others, to increase their employment opportunities, improve their Duke of Edinburgh skills, or to prepare for their level one coaches qualification. This course is excellent for building confidence, improving communication skills and nurturing leadership qualities.   The Leaders Course includes the core stand alone module ‘Introduction to Tennis’, that consists of 3 hours group work, covering basic leadership and coaching skills such as communication, organisation, and the delivery of fun games. For those wishing to also achieve certification in ‘Volunteering at Your Tennis Venue’, ‘Leading a Practice Session’ and ‘Helping at a Competition’, the initial course is followed by 5 hours work experience alongside me on my award winning Mini-Tennis Programme in which some of these additional modules can be facilitated. If you are interested in tennis or other sport disciplines then this course is a great way to begin building a skills portfolio. This course can also be delivered in a 1:1 or group format for adults wanting to help at their local club.

 

“Thomas loves helping out and is really looking forward to doing his Level 1. Tennis has opened so many doors for him and has developed his confidence in so many ways.”       Gemma.S , parent of Tennis Leader

 

Colleges & Universities 

I offer bespoke training days for Colleges and Universities either in-house or at Campion Tennis Club. The mentoring day will be structured around the learning outcomes of the respective course and can include improving the students tennis technique and coaching skills. Whether relating to PGCE, Sports Science or other Coaching Courses, I can tailor these mentoring sessions to specifically meet their needs.
