Coaches Long and McIntosh Attend Tennis For Kids Training n Portsmouth

Tennis Director Nigel Long and Head Coach James McIntosh attended the latest Tennis for Kids course held at Portsmouth Tennis Centre, following in the footsteps of coach Steph Catlin who already attended the Oxford course.

Along with the specific Tennis for Kids course training the duo got to meet former British No. 1 Katie O’Brian who reached career-high singles ranking of World number 84 and Naomi Cavaday who was at the time of her retirement British number 6 with a world ranking of World number 231.


If you are looking for a fun and fitness activity for your children look no further than Tennis for Kids that returns next week on 5th April 2018. The grassroots initiative gives children, aged between four and eleven, the opportunity to fall in love with tennis by taking part in a six-week introductory course delivered by specially trained and enthusiastic LTA accredited coaches such as Long, McIntosh and Catlin. Each player that signs up for the course will also receive a special Tennis for Kids Babolat racket and ball set as well as a personalised T-shirt delivered right to your door for just £25 (works out to just a little over £4 per week for the six week course).

The campaign was launched in 2016 and last year 20,000* children throughout the country took part in the LTA’s tennis starter course for children with 98% of parents stating that they were happy with their child’s experience. Why not find out more and get your family involved in 2018?
