Coaching for all ages and all abilities!

Wychwoods Tennis Club has spent many years developing a successful coaching programme, for both juniors and adults, in a low coach to player ratio. Our programme is run by Head Coach Faith Heron LTA Level 3 Coach.

Our club has led to the development of some outstanding young players who have made an impact on the county and national tennis scene. We are also proud that we offer one of the largest adult group coaching programmes in Oxfordshire offering a diverse programme of group lessons for all ages and abilities. We also actively participate throughout the wider community through our Schools Outreach programme.

We offer a free trial session to every new player that attends either one of our junior or adult coaching group sessions. Private group or individual lessons can be arranged 7 days a week. Discounted packages are available. Adult  non-members are welcome for a half term of coaching before they are expected to join the club and this applies to coaching indoors aswell as outdoors. Juniors can join the coaching programme without becoming a member.

About Head Coach Faith Heron - 2024 LTA Oxfordshire Development Coach of the Year

Tennis is my passion. I like to play it, I like to teach it and I like to see other people’s enjoyment as I help them to develop and improve their game. I’m delighted to be part of Wychwoods Club, where I hope to share my passion with you all. When I’m not coaching, I still like to play competitive tennis for various clubs. I strongly believe this helps me as a coach. Whether you are a highly competitive team player or a complete beginner or are returning after a break, I am here to help you fulfil your potential and get the most out of your tennis.

What other members say...

"I love my lessons with Faith.  Her style is never formulaic, always tailored to each person, building on strengths and ironing out weaknesses, with the emphasis on having fun.  I always walk away from the court on a high, not sure what her magic formula is but it works."

"I learned so many things today.  And she always tells me what I do right, not what I do wrong."  

”Faith’s tennis coaching skills are very special. Having never played tennis before, only after a very short period of time I have experienced significant improvement which I did not think was possible.  Faith always adapts to my needs and limitations whilst encouraging me to feel confident to push my boundaries a little further.  She is a great motivator and such a lovely person to have as a tennis coach.”

"I have been coached by Faith, both individually and in a doubles setting, for the past few months. She has a very supportive and nurturing coaching style with outstanding technical knowledge. She adapts her coaching appropriately for my style and experience and makes lessons fun  and enjoyable. Her own outstanding style and technique are an excellent model for me to aspire towards! I always leave the lesson feeling very positive and with clear targets which I need to work on. I would highly recommend booking up for some coaching with Faith - you will soon become addicted!" 

"Faith is undoubtedly an excellent tennis coach with loads of skill and experience. I joined the club last year having not played tennis for 55 years, so I was likely to be a challenge for any coach! Faith came highly recommended and has exceeded all my expectations. She is enthusiastic, very encouraging, patient, persistent and flexible. I feel I have really come on in leaps and bounds and my game has improved dramatically. I look forward to lessons because I know I am going to improve further and Faith makes learning fun, even at my age! I look forward to Faith continuing to be an excellent regular coach for me and for other members."
