There’s a chance to meet the new head coaching team at St Annes Lawn Tennis and Squash Club on Sunday, October 19 – and take part in some free taster coaching sessions.

Visitors can meet new head coach Jonathan Churchman LTA Level 4, and son Ben Churchman, Level 3 LTA licensed coach, from 11.30am at the Avondale Road venue.

From Noon to 1pm, thee will be junior tennis of all standards, a wheelchair tennis demonstration, and advanced player demonstration.

From 1 to 2pm is juniortennis, wheelchair tennis and junior cardio tennis.

And from 2 to 4pm, there’s adult tennis for all standards, adult cardio tennis, and touch tennis demonstrations.

Both Jonathan and Ben have lived and played tennis on the Fylde Coast for many years so the St Annes Club and many of its members are well known to them.

They have been at South Ribble Indoor Tennis Centre for the past 15 years where Jonathan has worked with players of differing standards from beginners to performance level and ages from 2 to 82 .

Links with the LTA has given both Jonathan and Ben a great understanding and experience of the requirements to take players to much higher level.

Ben has played competitive tennis since the age of 7 and has represented Lancashire at all junior age groups. He went on to play in both National and International events but more recently has taken up coaching where he has trained with some nationally ranked junior players. They are both looking forward to working at St Anne’s and hopefully can find the next Andy Murray here on the Fylde Coast and are urging parents to bring their children to the club so they can teach them the game in a warm, friendly and fun atmosphere.

Mini tennis red and Mini tennis orange/green coaching will be held indoors when raining.
