About Us

Diamond Tennis Academy was set up in 2006 with the aim of bringing tennis to children who may not have had the opportunity to play the sport in the past. Through establishing links with schools and clubs we have been able to help stimulate interest in tennis and continue developing many of those players, helping them make the most of their ability.

As well as coaching keen tennis players, we encourage them to compete both internally and externally, outside of the club. This is both a fun and effective way of developing their skills and keeps players in the game longer as they strive to reach the next level. 

We operate several projects in conjunction with local authorities and Tennis Wales. We  have a  permanent base at Heath Park in Cardiff where we operate most of our coaching throughout the year. Many of the players we have coached are currently representing their schools, and many have graduated from playing in the Cardiff leagues to the South Wales leagues.

Our coaching is now spread into the heart of the South Wales community with sessions running at many Outreach venues to bring the game closer to you.

What Our Members Are Saying:

"My kids (aged 3 and 5) started off with Diamond Tennis Academy over a year ago and are now attending the Tots and Under 8 tennis sessions. The training they have received from mature, experienced coaches has been exceptional. The coach has the rare skill of engaging toddlers for an hour, so they have fun, exercise and learn to hit the balls. My kids love tennis practice. It's really good value for money compared to some of the other classes we do and we are delighted with the new indoor courts. The class sizes have been small which has been great in developing my kids' confidence and they now love to join in every second of the hour. Thank you very much for all the time and effort you put into the toddlers and Under 8s. My kids and I think Diamond Tennis is fantastic and we are planning to be members for many years to come" - (Adele, member since 2009)

"I started as a complete beginner in the Adult Learner Sessions at Diamond Tennis Academy in 2008 and I think it is one of the most enjoyable things I have ever done. The coaches are fantastic; really knowledgeable, patient, helpful and very encouraging. I have worked mostly with Sena over the last couple of years and he is brilliant. I find the way the sessions are divided up through each term particularly helpful as we focus on different areas each week and build both confidence and skills as we go. The group is friendly and supportive, and we live in the hope that Sam, our social secretary, will organise a night out by the end of the decade! My tennis has improved beyond all recognition and although I have a long way to go, I'm keeping going and getting better week after week. I do think that the Diamond Tennis Academy have helped me learn how to play and enjoy a sport I have always loved watching, and that's a brilliant thing" - (Sarah, member since 2008)

"My son has been a member of Diamond Tennis Academy for a couple of years and has benefited from the expert coaching and personal mentoring that has seen his LTA rating improve significantly. Coaches are knowledgeable, friendly and approachable, providing a supportive environment for personal development. He really enjoys the way the academy sessions are run, providing a good balance of fun, skills development and competitive tennis" - (Ian, member since 2008)
