Head Coach – Kevin Durney

Kevin Durney

With over 15 years of experience in coaching I’ve worked with players from complete beginner to British Tour.  I achieved a MSc in Sports and Exercise Psychology and 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.

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.

Claire Blatchford-Brown – Membership Secretary

I am the first point of contact for all new members and can be contacted on wellstennismembership@gmail.com. I don’t play tennis, but I hope to meet you at our social events during the year.

“As a parent, I am very impressed with Wells Tennis club and the teaching offered by Kevin. Josh is clearly enjoying himself and it is great to watch him gaining confidence and skills. It is has also been really good for Josh that at the end of each session he talks about both what he is good at as well as what he needs to work on, this has helped greatly with his confidence at a new sport. We would both highly recommend Wells Tennis club.”
Tiffany (Josh’s mum)

“Kevin is great to have as a group leader – firstly he uses names – actually does remember who is who – and then he facilitates humour and fun. We smile an awful lot and laugh quite a bit too. He has bonded us into such a nice group. He knows what he is talking about and gives us enough detail about the technical side without going over the top. He likes to throw a bit of psychology at us to go home and think about too. It’s evident that he really likes coaching – always seems reluctant to draw the session to an end. Yes, I’d say he has true passion for the job.”
