Juniors (4 years +)

Mini tennis and coaching for juniors –  We provide a fun junior programme designed for children aged 4+. Our Saturday morning programme runs regularly throughout the year. We have two coaches in place to support our younger players; Samantha Kenshole (Head Junior Coach) and Lisa Haar. Currently Samantha is on maternity leave and Lisa Haar is in place until further notice.

Coach: Samantha Kenshole

Bio: I am a LTA Level 2 Tennis coach. I started playing tennis competitively at the age of 6, and have played at both County and National level, and went on to captain the Ladies 1st team at Cardiff Metropolitan University. I started coaching at the age of 16, and have coached at various clubs around Devon over the years, coaching players of all ages and abilities. I endeavour to make every session fun, but at the same time improving your skills and fitness levels.

Coach: Lisa Haar


I’ve achieved my Level 1 coaching qualification and in the process to completing Level 2. I am passionate about tennis and enjoy playing both socially and competively.

I am a Nursery Manager during the week at a local nursery and specialise in Early Years Care and Education. I live in Exmouth with my husband and two wonderful children.

Coach: Ollie Sharpe: 07446 111430

Bio: I am a LTA Accredited Level 4 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.  

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.

Coach: Alfie Woodger

Bio: I’ve played tennis since the age of 2 and have played to a level where I competed at nationals and was lucky enough to be a part of the winning national schools team back in 2018! I really enjoy coaching people of all ages and abilities and I cannot wait to see you all at the courts.
