Wells Tennis Club Performance Coach

Head Coach Kevin DurneyKevin Durney

LTA level 5 Master Club Coach

MSc Degree (Merit) Sports and Exercise Psychology

BSc Degree (Hons) Tennis Coaching Management



With over 15 years of experience in coaching I’ve worked with players from complete beginner to British Tour.  I achieved the prestigious Level 5 Master Club Coach Qualification taking me all around the country working with some of the best coaches and psychologists in our sport and earning an BSc honours degree in tennis coaching management with Northumbria University.

As well as coaching qualifications I am also qualified in many aspects of the game such as fitness instruction as well as sports therapy, injury rehab and sports massage and sports psychology achieving  merit in a Masters of Science Degree with Staffordshire University. 

My coaching philosophy is all about growth and improvement both on and off the court.  My aims for the players I work with are not only to improve their tennis but also other key aspects which will help in life such as self confidence, creativity and focus to name a few.

Other key messages I try to get across in my sessions are, remember the good things and try and stay positive.  In life we can all be guilty at times of finding mistakes and spending too much time on negatives but not enough on self praise.

In my spare time off the court I love being outside or active with my family (my wife and two children), going on trips to the Czech Republic and playing guitar.
