Getting the most out of coaching

Group programs and one-to-one sessions are most effective when the player is keen to improve their game. By advising us of what standard you are aspiring to achieve and how many hours per week you would like to train, our coaching team will be able to suggest a suitable programme based on years of experience.

Diamond Community Tennis (DCT)

Aimed at players who are looking to play once a week for fun and fitness and could play recreationally as an adult. This is the affordable tennis offer. The sessions are fun and progressive. Players are taught the skills of tennis with their friends. Indoor sessions are possible as are some sessions at their school.

 

Diamond Tennis Academy (DTA)

Aimed at players who play once a week and are keen to compete in local competitions, and could play at a club level as adults. The Academy sessions are carefully structured for players to learn the skills to play as quickly as possible. Trackers are used so players, parents and coaches are clear on the which skills are being taught. Skills are checked each half term. Players are given an assessment when they join to makes sure they are in the correct group. Players move to the next stage when they have completed all the skills on the tracker.

 

Diamond Tennis Academy + (DTA+)

The Diamond Tennis Academy + programme is based upon the LTA local player development centre criteria. The aim of our development programme is to produce county standard senior players from the local community.  The programme is carefully monitored, with players progress checked regularly. Players commit to a minimum of 2x 30 minute individual and  2x squad session with us.  Also they will compete in 12 external competitions per year. Some players may also train at their local club alongside our programme. Players will be assessed to place them in the correct group. Their individual training plan will develop from there.

You can also complete our questionnaire and return it to the info@diamondtennisacademy.co.uk, or hand in a physical copy to one of the team.

 


Matchplay Sessions

If you’re already happy with the standard of tennis you’re playing, participating in our matchplay sessions provides a great opportunity to compete against other players of similar ability. This social and competitive environment is ideal to test your skills or put into practise what you’ve learned during teaching sessions. We have a running series of events (typically on Saturday) that can be booked online from our booking page. Get in touch if you need any further details about upcoming events.
