Riverside Tennis Club has a great coaching team consisting:

Our Club Coach, Carolyn Barry, who runs most of our development sessions and is responsible for organising and coordinating our extensive coaching programme.

Our excellent performance coach, Karina Weedon (Level 4 LTA Licensed Coach) delivers our performance programme.

We also have three Level 2 Coaches:

Rossa Sears who provides great support for our very popular mini-tennis sessions & is also available for individual lessons.

Michael Barry who also supports our junior lessons and is available for individual lessons.

Sam Harris who supports our junior lessons and is also available for individual lessons.

In addition Jamie Barry & Eila Barron (both LTA Qualified Level 1 Coaches ) are available for hitting sessions.

We also have LTA qualified Tennis Leaders helping us including Charlie Kane, Ed Kershaw, Rob Williams, Rio Moss, Isaac Bonney & Stefan Ingram.


We have been delighted that our structure, whereby any surplus produced by coaching is ploughed back into player development and facility improvements, has led to great successes.  As well as many of our players producing excellent results at county level, we are also very proud that many of our juniors have become successfully integrated into adult tennis and we have often been complemented about their court etiquette and exemplary behaviour!

Our coaching team runs a comprehensive programme for adults, juniors, minis (under 10s) and tennis for those with a learning disability as well as organising lots of competitions.

We pride ourselves on offering coaching for all ages and standards – we have lots of groups for beginners as well as performance programmes for our County standard juniors; private lessons are available too.
