Herts Tennis Coaches Forum Event 28th October 2021

Herts Tennis Coaches Forum held an event at Batchwood Tennis Centre on the 28th of October.

Presentations were given by Tom and Ed Corrie: ‘”What tennis taught us” The skills that are taken away from the court.’ and Nick Cavaday: ‘Development philosophy and skill development U12’s to ATP/WTA tours’ Following the presentations there was a discussion session giving coaches time to reflect on what had been presented.

The event was very well received and the participants came away with lots of information and tips to enhance their coaching skills.

We discussed the new LTA Youth programme and how that is being received, the latest CPD opportunities from UCoach, the role of the optimal parenting workshops and how coaches can support parents of our competing players, as well as updates about tennis in the county.  A big thank you goes to presenters Sam Bruce from Gosling as well as Josh Dashwood and Mark Padfield, and also to coaches Mark Roskilly and Louise Penny for sharing their experiences of LTA Youth.
