Winning Gold! Whatever the weather we have fun!



All the right shots

Lewis and Catherine have a huge passion for tennis, this shows in the way they play and in the way they coach. They both take a lot of pride in trying to offer opportunities for all levels helping you not only improve your game but also to enjoy it. The level they have reached as players gives them a huge amount of expertise and experience. Above all they both really care about their players as individuals. | Lucie Ahl, Former no 1 British player


Lewis and Catherine have made a very positive impact on tennis in Wiltshire over the past 3 years and the LTA is delighted that their programme continues to grow and more people within the local community have the opportunity to experience the wonderful sport of tennis. | Julie Jones, LTA Tennis Development Manager


Lewis and Catherine are fantastic tennis role models and wonderful Deaflympic athletes. I have no hesitation in recommending their coaching services to players of all ages and standards, from those wishing to participate occasionally to aspiring young champions. | Roger Jones, Tennis Consultant and former GB Deaf Tennis Team Manager


Simply the best! As a family we require all different levels of coaching Lewis and Catherine tick that box. We have twin boys aged 8 who thrive under both Catherine and Lewis. Not one week goes by when they do not wish to go to tennis whatever the English weather throws at us. They have the best of both worlds, Lewis one day coaching and Catherine the next. We have a daughter who has enjoyed her coaching with them. I, Mum, have sessions with Catherine each week, a more sedate affair for Ladies who always could play tennis, will never set the world on fire but amazingly are still learning and managing to be taught. And finally Dad who has sneaky lessons in case the rest of the family get better than him………! Thank you Catherine and Lewis for your time and patience. | Jus Renwick, Parent and Player Ramsbury & Marlborough Tennis Clubs


"Lewis and Catherine have been very stalwart ambassadors for deaf tennis representing GB on many occasions very successfully. They are young and enthusiastic coaches who will inspire many more people to get involved in tennis and allow them to meet new people and have fun. I wish them well in their coaching careers and hope they can continue to mix that with further representations at international level" | Sue Mappin, ex Executive Director of the Tennis Foundation


“I have been involved with the Ramsbury Tennis Club since its formation over thirty years ago and now it is a very successful club.  Lewis and Catherine, our coaches, are of the highest standard - one only has to look at the faces of both children and adults they are coaching to see how much pleasure they are getting from their lessons.  The improvement in the players is a joy to see”. | Ethel Hutchings, President of Ramsbury Tennis Club


Employing Catherine and Lewis (Tennisxperience UK), as Head Coaches to Ramsbury Tennis Club, was an inspired move. Since the appointment the junior membership has not only increased but the overall standard of play has increased and many more players are keen to get involved. Their knowledge of the game and standard of instruction is as good as it gets. | Roger Henry, Junior Co-ordinator, Ramsbury Tennis Club


Catherine and Lewis have inspired the junior members at Marlborough Tennis Club.  Their energy and enthusiasm is boundless.  Combined with their keen sense of loyalty and professionalism  is a love of the game of tennis which they freely pass onto the people they coach.  It is rare to meet people who are at the top of their own game and have the ability to switch instantly from top level personal training to working with 5 year old beginners – always smiling and never downhearted.  They seem equally at home developing the skills of a beginner or fine tuning the game of a performance player – adults or juniors alike – they inspire them all.  They have helped me both on a personal and professional level and I feel privileged to work with them on a weekly basis. | Hilda Moore, Chair & Coaching co-ordinator, Marlborough Tennis Club.


"Since Catherine and Lewis took over the junior coaching at Bedwyn the juniors have gone from strength to strength.  We have over 70 children now attending coaching sessions and Catherine and Lewis organise everything from ensuring they have the best equipment to arranging junior matches for some of the players. The children really enjoy the coaching sessions and Lewis and Catherine keep them motivated and enthusiastic. I do not know what Bedwyn Tennis Club would do without them both". | Junior Co-ordinator, Great Bedwyn Tennis Club


Learning tennis with Tennis Xperience has turned me from being interested in tennis to absolutely loving it! I know what I need to improve on after every lesson, and I also know what I'm good at too, which is important. With Tennis Xperience, you get as much direction as you get encouragement, which makes learning to play tennis a greatly enjoyable experience! | Alexander Cole, Pupil


"Catherine and Lewis are so smiley they are fun to be around and I always look forward to my lessons each week. At the moment my favourite drill is DRIVE, VOLLEY, VOLLEY, SMASH! Catherine and I play whatever the weather because we have so much fun. | Harriet Eyles, U10 County player


"Since James has started playing in tournaments, it has made me really reaslise just how brilliantly Catherine and Lewis have coached James. He has grown in confidence and is able to score and hold his own on court. James really looks forward to his Friday coaching sessions and he loves playing matches. It is all thanks to Lewis and Catherine." | Sarah Richardson, Parent from Great Bedwyn Tennis Club


"It's been my great pleasure to follow Catherine and Lewis for almost 10 years through their development as players, to competing with great distinction on an international stage for Great Britain, gaining their coaching qualifications and going on to develop their own coaching business.  They approach their coaching with the same dedication and attention to detail they need to perform as international players and I can think of no better role models for deaf or hearing players of all ages”. | Marshall Thomas, Tennis Writer


“Catherine and Lewis are an inspiration to deaf tennis and good role models for other deaf tennis players who may be seriously considering following their paths in becoming coaches”.  | Bryan Whalley, Author of The History of British Deaf Tennis
