As Head Coach at Bath Tennis Club, Rich offers individual tennis lessons for players of all ages and abilities. Tennis lessons typically last 1 hour and whether you’re looking to improve your technique, develop your match tactics or work on court agility, he’s happy to adapt the tennis lesson to suit your needs.
His interest is in technical analysis and stroke production. This involves getting the most out of your shots in a compact motion that both optimises spin, power and control. It’s all about repetition – confidence in tennis very much comes from consistency of technique. Above all though, and most importantly, my tennis lessons are highly enjoyable and taken in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Client Success Story
As a member of the committee I am hugely impressed with Andrew's unstinting hard work and dedication to the smooth running, upkeep and success of Bath Tennis Club. He is a huge asset and manages to turn his hand to any problem from snow-damaged astro courts to social media management or sponsorship from local businesses.
Andrew is an excellent tennis coach. He manages to remember and analyse his client's game better than they do, and is always patient, clear and consistent with his coaching at all levels, from beginner to advanced.
Andrew has the ability to coach a group of people with mixed abilities and fitness levels and make sure that everyone has a session that's right for them. He is unfailingly cheerful, positive and upbeat, and makes every session enjoyable and fun.
Andrew always aims to get the very best out of your game, whatever your level. He’s really good at identifying what’s going wrong with a shot and finding solutions that work for you. Not only is he technically brilliant, Andrew also imbues confidence to enable you to move into a new level of performance. His lessons are also really good fun!
Everyone who joins the club comments on how welcoming it is and how much is going on. That’s pretty much all down to Andrew. He manages our very busy competitive league matches throughout the year, runs a whole host of hilarious social events, is the driving force behind the many club facility improvements and ensures the club is a safe and enjoyable place to play your tennis.
I've been a very happy and committed member of Andrew's cardio crew for 8 years. His sessions are full of energy, speed, and focused drills that improve our fitness, tennis skills, reaction times and shots.
