Coaching

 

At Monkstown LTC, we are lucky enough to offer top-class coaching for Juniors and Senior of all ages and standards.

For Seniors, our coaches work with all levels, from those who have never held a racquet before, to those playing at an advanced competitive level.

For Juniors, our coaches make learning tennis fun, helping them to improve quickly and motivating them to continue to be active in the club.

Coaching is available for individual or group coaching seven days a week. Check out their profiles below or contact the Club office for advice on which coach would best suit your needs.
