A NEW coaching team has smashed into action at Wollaston Lawn Tennis Club in Stourbridge.

Emily White and Simon Robbins are offering a range of coaching options, including ‘tennis camps’ for youngsters during school holidays.

Emily, aged 22, reigning Ladies Champion and overall captain of the Ladies’ teams at Wollaston, said: “I have been playing at Wollaston for over 16 years and have gained so much experience from the club. Now I have teamed up with Simon, a very experienced player and a former head coach here, so we can jointly pass on our tennis experience and enthusiasm to others.”

Simon, aged 48, an LTA level 4 accredited coach, said: “We want everyone to enjoy tennis as much as we do.”

Operating under the name SE. Tennis - the pair offer individual and group coaching for players of all ages and abilities.

There are sessions for junior and adult beginners, ‘rusty racquets’ for those coming back to the sport after a gap, and fast, furious and fun ‘Cardio Tennis’, accompanied by music.

Club chairman Alan Hughes said: “Both Emily - who is a level 3 accredited coach - and Simon are already well-known and highly respected at the club and we are absolutely delighted they have teamed up to offer their coaching services here.

“It is so rewarding to see our home grown talent flourishing - and passing on their tips and skills to other members.”
