Head Coach James McIntosh said “It’s great to see so many smiling faces and the players enjoying their sessions. He’d added, “Since they have started we have seen a significant improvement in developing their co-ordination skills and their ability to rally with the coach.”

As well as the DS session’s Totally Tennis offers coaching specifically designed for players with disabilities as part of the club’s community programme. The coaches have many aids to help children with disabilities along with fun games and drills to aid learning.
