Rothbury Tennis Club is very lucky to have LTA licensed Head Coach Phil Barron working at the club.

Phil has over 20yrs coaching experience, working with all the different levels of club players, county players and national juniors. Phil currently works with 12 Northumberland Academy players and 3 nationally identified juniors.

Rothbury Monday night coaching is a terrific success with lots of new players now attending and developing their tennis skills.

Phil has recruited his assistant level 2 coach Joe Race coach from CCTP to help develop tennis opportunities for Rothbury players by running additional Saturday coaching sessions starting after Easter. Joe has over 10 yrs coaching experience and comes highly recommended by Phil.

Should you want to buy a racquet if you take up the sport, then our coaches can give you some advice based on how you play. Stringing services can also be provided and Prince Synthetic Gut is our recommended string.

Players must dress appropriately for the activity and conditions (hats, gloves, fleeces etc). We also recommend players to invest in a pair of tennis shoes. Most of our members recommend Asics for price/performance and our coaches can give recommendations if you need them. This tennis shoes guide has reviewed several shoes and is continually updated if you are looking for additional advice.

Any sessions cancelled due to bad weather will result in a session credit on the next coaching course so no players will miss out.

Players do need to book their place

Session ages above are there as a guide and the decision on which session is best for you will be taken by Head coach Phil Barron.
