Barnes Tennis Academy was set up in 2018 to provide tennis education for a wide variety of ages and ability. Barnes Tennis Academy's programme is designed to provide an opportunity for players to develop their technical and tactical ability, whilst improving their fitness and health.
I was keen to set up an academy that provided an experience where learning was placed alongside fun and enjoyment. In order to achieve this, I have capped the group sizes to 6 players to ensure that everyone playing at the academy can see a progression in their tennis ability throughout the term. I also wanted to ensure that there was never a situation in my tennis academy where players are lined up waiting to hit a ball, as excellence comes with repetition and practice.
