Coaches

Coolhurst is a membership club so adults wishing to use our facilities to be coached only, need to join as a Member being coached (£85/year.) There is also an Improver category available if the member is not quite the standard to play in Club Periods but is willing to be coached to reach that standard.

Our coaches are all fully Qualified LTA licensed coaches and are available for private lessons.
