Welcome to Durham Tennis Academy
DURHAMS PERFORMANCE COACHING CENTRE
Durham Tennis Academy is run by LTA Pro Coach Geoff Henderson, former county player at senior level and recently veterans level.
Thank you for looking at my website, I hope to give you an insight into what has been acheived from a small site in Durham.
I am proud of the fact that The Academy has remained independant and produced some excellent players over the past few years with some going on to play for their school team, county and country. At present, Joel Woodward aged 11, has reached number 10 in the current National rankings with Harry Cookson age 10 close on his heels following his success on reaching the Northumberland open finals well done to you both!
Both these boys are now being invited to National tournaments around the country by the LTA; not many boys are given that honour .
I acknowledge the kind help I have received over the years from Durham High School for Girls, from whom I hire the facilities, also Bowe, Durham School.
In previous years and particularly last year 2013, we achieved some wonderful results producing players who have gone on to join county squads at the top Northumberland Academy in Jesmond, from the age of 6 years. The main aim of the Academy is to let children and teens enjoy the game of tennis which I believe is a truly great sport, something that can be played for fun, socially or seriously, you decide. A TRULY LIFE LONG SPORT unlike others which only last until you leave school !!
We have groups of all ages training with us and are the leaders in the area for top performers and with a 30 year history of acheiving outstanding results
We have an indoor facility for use throughout winter too, so no stopping for bad weather. It's continuous coaching at the academy, all school holidays have tennis mornings so no missing training here!!
My thanks to all the coaches who come in and help me support our great youngsters.
Come along to one of our sessions and see what is on offer!!
Thank-you for reading this and I hope to hear from you soon.
Come to the Summer schools and see what you can learn and improve on
