Woodthorpe Tennis Club


Established in 1909 Tennis for All Ages

On The Ball Coaching

Chris McGill is Woodthorpe TC's Head Coach. He established On The Ball Coaching with Matt Wildt in 2007, and together with their team of coaches they run a comprehensive programme for both juniors and adults.

Along with OTBC's core coaching team, there are a number of Assistant Coaches who help run our group sessions; we operate both junior (from ages 3+) and adult sessions throughout the week at the Club.


In conjunction with OTBC's coaching programme there is a Junior Club Night every Tuesday from 4pm. All junior members are entitled to a weekly coaching session within their membership fees.


As well as our adult and junior sessions, all of the coaches can provide individual lessons for players looking to improve or refine their game.
