Who are we?
Jonathan Newton started Gateshead Tennis in 1999 when he became Head Coach of Blaydon Tennis Club. We are a team of 5 coaches (Ian, Jonathan, David, Andy, Grace not pictured) and believe everyone would be better if they played some tennis. Whether its a game with a friend once a month or a coaching group and a 1 to 1 every week. Obviously the more we teach you the better you'll get. Any age, any fitness, any skill level we can help you achieve the level you want.
What we do?
Coach tennis mainly to children within the mini tennis and squads programme. Warriors is the name of our performance programme where players play twice a week plus a 1-1 lesson. We run 3 levels of adult coaching, xpress is for beginners, improvers is for players who can rally from the baseline and team coaching is doubles tactics.
Lots of stats come out about sports and tennis is always highly ranked. It keeps your brain healthy, sloving the problem of winning a point, great for bone strength - 2nd only to swimming. You work on strength, running after the ball and swinging & turning to hit it. It's good for cardio and if you enjoy a warm up theres stretching in that as well helping flexibility. Make friends, learn together and compete against each other. All outside in the fresh air, surrounded by trees and a river whilst soaking up the sun.
