COACHING PHILOSOPHY
Everyone is treated as an individual, with an effort to find solutions suited to their game style, age, aspiration and ability level.
 
We do not teach shots in exactly the same way to everyone. Just look at the best players in the world to see the variety of styles.
 
What is important to us is that you are playing in a manner which is mechanically efficient so as not to cause injuries, as an improvement in mechanics will ultimately benefit a player's game.

The Doubles Clinic will include the following:
 
1) We will work on the playing situations that occur most frequently for your level. This could be both at the net, 1 up 1 back, both back or a combination of all 3!
 
2) The importance of positive and effective communication skills as a team i.e. how to interact with your partner both during and in between points
 
3) A consideration of everyone's role - server, receiver, server's partner and receiver's partner - and each team's positioning and movement during a point. (also covered during the weeks lessons)
