We are delighted to be offering a summer tennis academy for resident guests from the 10th July until 5th September. We are welcoming to the Moonfleet team experienced tennis coaches, Callum and Brandon, to offer group coaching sessions for children, private coaching sessions and cardio tennis for adults.
Callum and Brandon will offer complimentary 60 minute group coaching sessions Tuesday to Saturday for children aged 6 to 15yrs, staying at the hotel. These sessions are split into age ranges and are offered at the following times;
6-8yrs at 10:00
9-11yrs at 11:30
12-15yrs at 15:00
Private 45 minute coaching sessions for children or adults will also be available daily at 09:00, 13:00, 14:00, 16:15. These sessions are charged at £45 per session. In addition for adults there is the opportunity to try cardio tennis at 08:00. This is a great opportunity to hit lots of tennis balls during the session and have a great cardio workout at the same time.
We recently caught up with one of the coaches, Callum, about his tennis career and coaching.
When did you begin playing tennis?
I began playing tennis at the age of 10 and during my teenage years I played at a number of national and international competitions. My career high was being ranked number 1 in the Dorset Under 18’s and I held a national ranking inside the top 100 for the same age category.
When did you move into coaching tennis?
I began teaching and coaching tennis at the age of 15, assisting at my local tennis club. From there I did my level one to three coaching qualifications with the Lawn Tennis Association and shortly after I started teaching tennis at a school in Dorset.
Who is your favourite tennis player?
Novak Djokovic – he is a fantastic athlete and a great character.
