Last month we said goodbye to our coach James Hilltout. James has been with Bourton Vale Lawn Tennis Club for some 30 years and we are all indebted to him for the great service he has given the Club. We wish him well in his future endeavours overseas!

We are very pleased to report we now have a new coach. Kingsley Harris is an LTA-accredited Level 4 Performance and Club Coach with many years’ experience as head coach at large and medium-sized clubs and as an LTA county and regional coach. As such, we are very happy to appoint someone of Kingsley’s exceptional calibre.

Kingsley will be picking up where James left off with the autumn term of the Junior Programme beginning in September. Kingsley will of course be offering coaching to adults too, so if you, or your children, are interested in taking tennis lessons please contact Kingsley direct on 07879 644218 or visit our website at for more details.

See you on court!
