Meet your coach Dave

My name is Dave Willford, I am an LTA licensed Tennis Coach and one of the coaches at Knowle Lawn Tennis Club in Bristol.

I have over 10 years of coaching experience along with a degree in Sports Development and Coaching. A lot of my coaching has been in America, where I was responsible for running a junior tennis program. While in America I had the opportunity to work with and learn from professional tennis players: skills, co-ordination, balance and concentration.

We have a thriving and friendly tennis community at Knowle and run a number of exciting full Adult and Junior tennis programs for all ages and abilities.

New players of any age or standard are always welcome with no previous playing experience necessary.

My sessions include advice for beginners to advanced players, with fun interactive drills and trying to excel juniors to a county performance level.

Mini tennis and junior sessions will encourage confidence & all-round knowledge of tennis, focusing on technique, preparation, ball skills, co-ordination, balance and concentration.
