Jon joins Wincanton as a fully-qualified Lawn Tennis Association Coach, most recently having been Head Coach at Centre Parcs, Longleat, as well as working at Shaftesbury Tennis Centre.

Since qualifying as a LTA Level 3 Coach in 2005, Jon has gained valuable experience at a number of venues including David Lloyd Swindon and Cheltenham Ladies College. Specifically, he has huge experience with mini and junior tennis programs, having coached children from the age of 5 upwards, with a number of students reaching County standard. Jon is looking forward to developing both the junior and adult courses at Wincanton as well as being available for private coaching sessions for those looking for more one-to-one attention.

"Inevitably there has been some disruption to the courses over recent months and we'd like to thank all our members and players for their patience during this time. We're very pleased to have attracted a coach of Jon's standard to the Club here in Wincanton and are looking forward to offering some great courses to all local tennis players." commented Rik Elvidge, the club's Chairman.

Wincanton Tennis Club has four all-weather, floodlit courts and welcomes both members and non-members alike. The new coaching program will be starting immediately for all levels of juniors and adults - contact Jon on 07918 617950 for further information or to sign up. Adult players of all standards are welcome to join Club Nights on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6.30pm.
