Providing quality coaching for all means giving all players solid fundamentals to be able to progress long term. We specialise in working with primary school aged players.
The Diamond Tennis Academy programme is based upon our 20 + years of working with development players. The aim of our programme is to produce players keen to compete. The programme is carefully monitored, with players progress checked regularly.
Players commit to a minimum of 1x 30 minute individual and 1x squad session with us. Also they will compete in 12 external competitions per year. This is an invitation only programme. Players will be assessed to place them in the correct group. Their individual training plan will develop from there.
