Welcome To Ollie's Tennis
Tailored coaching for all ages and abilities
About Ollie Toms
My name is Ollie Toms and I’m a fully qualified and licensed LTA (Lawn Tennis Association) coach.
Today I work with two clubs and three schools and have over 200 pupils playing regularly on my coaching programme. My main aim is to pass on my knowledge in every lesson I give while ensuring each class is also engaging and fun. This philosophy is shared by all of my coaching team and we cater for all ages and abilities in group and individual lessons.
My own tennis journey began when I was 15. I was considered a late starter in the sport, but within just one year, I was travelling all over the country competing and have been hooked on the game ever since.
By the age of 18, I had already completed my level 1 & 2 coaching courses. Since then I have kept learning and adding to my qualifications and now, 14 years later, I’m where I want to be.
I set up my own business in 2015 and although it was no easy task, the results, particularly in the last two years, have made the hard work worthwhile.

What I Do
After school and weekend classes ranging from 45-60 minutes per session. Suitable for Ages 5-16. A strong focus on technique, drills & matchplay.
During the day and evening classes ranging from 60-90 minutes per session. Different group times suitable for all standards. Tactics & matchplay combined with drills.
Junior Groups and Holiday Camps
A fantastic opportunity for pupils to continue playing Tennis in all school holidays. Duration can be between 2-5 hours depending on time of the year. A big variation of technique, drills, games & matchplay. Great fun for everyone involved and a chance to play with other juniors you may not know. Suitable for ages 4-15.
Cardio Tennis for all ages
A fun, high energy class, which is for all abilities. Less focus on technique than the above groups. Great for burning calories in an outdoor environment.
Primary school coaching
A great opportunity for pupils to play in their school environment before joining a club session. Great for beginners or those looking to play even more. Suitable for ages 5-10.
Tutor for Tennis leader courses
I tutor a 3 hour module of theory and practical. Followed by a minimum of 2 hours assessment. This can be assisting in a junior group or tournament. A minimum of 2 courses a year. A certificate, LTA t shirt and recognised qualification on completion. Suitable for ages 13+.
1 to 1 coaching normally 45-60 minutes. Regular or refresher lessons which are great for faster development, in depth technical advice and confidence in improving your game.
For those who go on to compete, I organise junior tournaments for all age groups. I also help find events for those looking to compete in other clubs.
Great British Tennis Weekend
A weekend of FREE coaching. Held at one or two venues every summer. A range of fun activities for juniors and adults. Dates TBC each year.
I coach at two clubs and three schools. Club coaching covers all of my services. School coaching is just for junior groups.
