Evolution Tennis have worked in collaboration with Somerhill Pre-Prep to deliver high-quality tennis coaching for Reception, Year One and Year Two children through lunchtime and after school club sessions. Dave and his team of coaches bring a high standard of teaching expertise, discipline and energy to every session and the children start to build their tennis skills quickly, whilst also having great fun. The perfect way to engage children in learning and exercise. Parents are always welcome to watch and they have been impressed with how their children have progressed in a relatively short period of time. The Evolution Tennis team have always been professional and approachable and we look forward to offering coaching to our younger children in September.
We have been so delighted with the coaching George (age 9) has received from both Dave and Rob at Evolution. He has been having weekly lessons for a couple of years now and also is a regular at the holiday camps which he loves! We have seen him grow in confidence and skill on the court and he really looks forward to his tennis lessons. The coaches are so friendly and have a great rapport with the children, managing to keep the classes really fun and very productive at the same time! I highly recommend it for your children!
My three boys aged 9, 12 and 14 love their group tennis lessons with Evolution Tennis. The coaches make the sessions so much fun while the kids improve their skills. The older ones love playing in the club junior championship and socials, and represent Brenchley & Matfield in the junior Kent leagues. Although they play tennis at school too, they still want to continue the club lessons. I have also been having group lessons and cardio tennis with Dave for nearly 2 years now and I hate to miss one. In fact, I try and schedule my busy life around my weekly sessions! Dave has really helped me improve my court positioning and general awareness of the doubles game. The cardio training has helped my overall fitness and I find I can often get to balls I used to just leave!
As a family we all benefit from lessons with Evolution Tennis. Our two smallest folk particularly enjoy their classes – these group sessions give them the chance to learn how to work together and nurture a sense of fair play. It’s a great foundation for learning to play ‘proper’ tennis as they get older, and developing and enhancing co-ordination. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Join the Sports Revolution with Evolution!
Having decided to take up tennis again 5 years ago after decades of not playing, Dave has vastly improved my overall game from stroke play to match play tactics in both singles and doubles. Every week I continue to learn something new therefore challenging myself to improve yet further, however it is also important to me that the coaching is also enjoyable and fun. I would say that Dave has helped me develop a real love for playing the game again.
Thank you so much for coming back with such a comprehensive response, this is really helpful being full time working parents. You have created a very welcoming club for us all with a great team and it’s a lovely atmosphere. With your clear and concise emails to help us get going it has meant our daughter could begin to experience Tennis in a positive way. I thought the Coach’s were great and they have also really engaged with our Daughter and given her a love for her Saturday class.
Aurelia and I just wanted to write and say how lovely Ali is. Aurelia is loving her lessons with him, he has lots of great games to play, is lots of fun to be around and by the end of each lesson they play some good tennis. He really is a star and I just wanted to pass on how much we like his teaching & how much Aurelia is learning from him.
Thanks – the girls really enjoyed themselves… keeping their attention for 4 hours is no mean feat!
The lessons are fun and relaxed, but I learn a lot every week. We get plenty of feedback from Rob and I think I’m really improving.
What a brilliant week for the kids! They had an amazing time – so much fun and their tennis improved leaps and bounds. Please thank Dave and his team of fab coaches. We will definitely be back for more!
The Red Tiny lessons are perfect for my 5 year old daughter. The lessons are great fun with lots of games, and the coaches are very patient.”
Dave and his team clearly love what they do and their enthusiasm is infectious. Our children look forward to their lessons every week.
David is an outstanding coach who has a great depth of knowledge. He has a very good relationship with his students who really want to improve to please him. He uses a wide range of drills and motivation techniques to keep the students engaged at all times. There is a huge element of fun but the lessons always show progression and achievement. The students really relate and flourish in his sessions reaching targets they thought they could not achieve. He is also very good at giving praise when due and lots of individual feedback. He does however also keep control of the group if they are mis-behaving or not focusing, he will bring them back on task. He can teach from reception to adult.
Our daughter has benefitted tremendously from Dave’s nurturing style and positive coaching approach. It has been remarkable to watch her tennis improve and her confidence grow both on and off the court. Through his teaching and encouragement she has become a solid player with a real competitive drive.
Our son continues to improve his skill, ability and understanding of the game. Dave has also taught him to temper his spirit on the court and to focus his energy positively. The results are evident in his technical progress and his game strategy but most of all in his absolute enjoyment on the court.
As an adult I enjoy the fun atmosphere and variety of play that he promotes in group lessons, and I have also benefited from private coaching where he tailors the lesson to focus on targeted areas for development and improvement. His teaching skill, dedication and attention to detail are exemplary.
Dave invests personally in each of his clients regardless of age or ability. He takes time to learn what is important to each player and adapts his coaching methods in order to achieve the targeted results. He delivers an excellent standard of coaching at every session. He is reliable and professional but above all Dave brings such fun, enjoyment and enthusiasm to the court.
