Coach: Matt Dunn

Bio: I am a LTA Level 2 qualified Tennis Coach with these qualifications gained over the last 2 years at Exeter University. With regard to Coaching I like to make my sessions fun with lots of games and challenges where the children learn the many skills needed for tennis.

I have an extensive coaching background and recently’retired’ from Soccer Coaching as A Level 1 FA trained coach where I coached and managed my youngest sons team from age 8 to 18.

Interesting Facts: I love Mountain Biking and in the recent snow I was out on Woodbury Common at night for 3 hours riding ! I have also ridden John O Groats to Lands End recently and loved it.

I’m married to Jennie and have 3 children who all love sport . We also have a mad Cocker Spaniel called Billie who loved the snow.

Adult Coaching – Programmes run throughout the summer and autumn.

Coach: Ollie Sharpe:  07446 111430

Bio: I am an LTA Accredited Level 3 Tennis coach, who has been coaching since the age of 16.  I started coaching after playing as part of the East Devon Tennis Academy and ECC Academy based at Exmouth Tennis and Fitness Centre.

I am Head Coach of the Mini Devon Academy and part of the Junior Devon Academy coaching team, responsible for producing and coaching the next generation of high level Tennis players in the County.  I have coached players to County Championship titles in the Mini Tennis age group and these players are now progressing to regional and national competitions.  I was recently named the 2018 Devon Young Coach Of The Year.

My coaching ethos is to help guide you to your goal by building a strong relationship where you trust me to do the best for your tennis.  We will work as a team towards your goal.

For me tennis is all about having fun while you work hard, so all of my sessions are built around this ethos.  I work with all ages and abilities and believe I can help any player improve their all round game.

Private individual lessons £25 per hour.

It is the intention that everyone should enjoy being a member of the Club irrespective of their level of tennis ability.
