About three years ago I attended a weekend course as an ok club intermediate player; nothing more. In my early 60s I knew I could no longer rely just on fitness and needed greater tactical awareness.
Since then I have, in my age group, won regional and national tournaments in Spain (where I live) - Men’s doubles and Mixed - with a national ranking of first and third, respectively.
The course lifted my games several levels!
Tony, many thanks for your kind comments and many congratulations on implementing so well that you've transformed your game. I am delighted for you

This was my second time attending Paul's course and I learned a lot, from refining some of the basics to some of the more advanced techniques. Paul and the coaches are very knowledgable and will always have so much time for you. Thoroughly recommended if you want to improve your game.

Catered for every standard. Paul and the team helped me to revisit the skills I had and helped me to regain confidence in playing. Will definitely go again!

Thanks Paul, the weekend was fantastic, There was a lot of information , lots to take in lots to do, so definitely value for money.
I appreciated the clear demonstrations and the time coaches spent with us ensuring we understood the techniques.
I am looking forward to the chance to apply the learning of the various areas like racquet grip, and the various shot techniques and the tips to remembering and applying the techniques tactics on the final part of the last day were very informative too.
Stewart and Dom were great coaches too thanks to the team
Thanks also to Angie keeping us updated with information up to the last minute in case of any changes.
I would highly recommend the course - 5-stars all the way.
It was a pleasure to meet and coach you. Your desire to learn will help you apply the new techniques. Keep practicing grip changes whilst in lockdown as it will help. Hopefully you'll find some room to practice your throwing technique too.

I have attended several courses now and would highly recommend. Paul and his team of coaches not only have a wealth of knowledge and experience but they are really helpful and approachable as well. I defy anyone to come away from a weekend without at least half a dozen things to try that will improve their game - sometimes just tiny little things that can make a really big difference, or a phrase or way of explaining something that gives you one of those lightbulb moments. I have really enjoyed the training and will definitely come again.

The experience was brilliant! In the space of 2 days a lot of lessons has been covered which is really beneficial for those who want to develop their technique and performance. The course made me aware of the bad habits which important in improving performance. I highly recommend the course. The venue Lilleshall was great. Excellent facility and accommodation. Paul and his team were amazing, very helpful and supportive. The team really pushed the attendees to improve themselves. They provided excellent coaching and feedback. I'm in the plan of attending another session in the future.
It's always a delight to coach players at Lilleshall. You made great progress over the weekend and i look forward to seeing you again in the future.

This is easily the best coaching I've had, it's a really in-depth couple of days and time very well spent. I've played for a number of years and knew some areas needed improvement but hadn't expected such a thorough step-by-step assessment of every aspect of my shot production. The course has really helped me think more about my games on court and to play 'smarter'....and, there has been some improvement...!!
No hesitation in recommending Paul's course and plan to attend again later this year.....

I just like to congratulate you both on the wonderful experience of being coached by your friendly, knowledgeable and approachable team. And personally like to thank you for the help I have received in improving my game.
Having not had any coaching before, this was a big eye opener for me as much of my game was bad habits, although I am a natural athlete and quite rapid around the court, I have found the tips picked up during the weekend have been hugely beneficial and find myself being quite mindful of my movements, which will only improve my game eventually.
Going back to my club I have found it quite difficult to put what I have learnt into match play, and can only emphasise the importance of practicing, allowing it to become a natural part of my game, giving time for my brain to adjust to this is ke y. Until it is all natural for me with regards new techniques (where practice will help), I will take your advice and just focus on one element, being net play or stance etc.
The weekend on a whole was a huge success and I would certainly recommend to anybody that is thinking of improving their game this programme. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and I will certainly look at attending again in the near future.
Anthony, so pleased to see you have understood what this weekend is about. Working on one area in your game allows you to fine tune these skills in match play whilst still practicing others areas in readiness for a more focussed approach.
