Weekend Coaching

Sunday Sessions – Doubles Tactics for Improvers

Join in the Sunday Sessions with Fiona from 4.00 - 5.30pm
and raise your game for social and competitive doubles.

Each week there will be a cardio warm-up followed by a focus on technique 
which will be practised in match play to develop doubles tactics and 
court craft.

These sessions will build on players existing skills, encouraging them to 
play to their strengths and exploit their opponents weakness!

They will cover aspects of the game such as: directing the serve, 
communicating with a partner, lobbing and smashing and shot placement, 
but will be planned around the needs of the group.

The first block will run from TBC.
To book a place or for more information, please contact Fiona Shivas, DCA/Level 3 Coach, 07984411771.
