David Taylor Tennis Coach in Hove

  1. Based at The Kingsway Tennis Club on Hove Seafront, I provide high quality tennis coaching in a fun and safe environment. My passion for the game combined with my experience of playing and teaching to a high level makes learning both easy and fun.  I I offer individual and group coaching for all ages and abilities.

    Mini Tennis

    Mini Tennis is an exciting LTA programme that encourages children between 3 and 10 years old to get stuck into the world of tennis. With smaller courts, nets and rackets and lower bouncing balls, Mini Tennis offers the perfect introduction to the sport with all the fun and energy of the real thing.

    There are four stages of LTA Mini Tennis; Tots, Red, Orange and Green, each with their own court size and type of ball. This tailored approach enables players to develop vital skills and techniques at an early age. I offer both individual and group mini tennis lessons using the age appropriate mini tennis equipment.

    Tennis Holiday Clubs

    Our Holiday camps will run throughout 2013 during Spring Half Term, the Easter Holidays, Summer half term and the Summer Holidays. Our camps offer children of between 6 and 12yrs the opportunity to develop and improve key tennis skills in a fun and safe environment.

    Camps are run at a maximum child to coach ratio of 8:1 with children being grouped with friends and other children of similar ages and ability where possible.

    Each day consists of two, two hour sessions of fun tennis drills, practices, games and mini competitions focused on a specific game situations and associated shots. The aim being to improve technique, agility, balance and co-ordination whilst learning and experiencing the game as a whole. The day is split by an hour lunch break supervised by our coaches for which children require a packed lunch.

    This recommendation was made verbally by a parent speaking to the KalliKids team and confirmed in writing.

    • Karen, Mum of Two Daughters, Clapham

      We started tennis coaching with David a year ago in a bid to help improve my daughter's self-confidence. I discussed this with David before we started the lessons and he began by teaching myself and my daughter together. He was so accommodating which really helped. He is enthusiastic, patient and really makes the lessons fun. The lessons are one of the contributory factors to her increase in self-confidence. David makes her laugh and keeps the lessons varied to keep her engaged. Through his lessons, my daughter's love of the sport has grown, and she now really enjoys playing. One of the great things is that David passes on his love of the sport, you can see he enjoys taking the lesson.

      David Taylor is a fantastic tennis coach, teaches a modern style, is very good with kids and is very friendly.
      My daughters have both benefited from his patient tuition and I have also had adult lessons with him over the last 2 years. He has the exceptional skill of teaching both single and double handed. I would highly recommend him.

    • Sam, Mum to Annabel (15) and Beatrice (12), London

      The girls have been taught by David for approximately one year now, and are both really improving. Beatrice had a break but has been going again since the start of the year, and has now increased to two lessons a week, at her request, which shows how much she is enjoying it! Both have individual tuition and play outside all year round. David's infectious enthusiasm helps to keep the girls motivated and engaged. He provides regular feedback to us on their progress and communicates well. He has a great relationship with the girls, and is kind and encouraging. He manages to maintain a sense of fun with the girls, while still ensuring they are learning. I feel very comfortable with him teaching them, and am at ease not being at the lesson.

  4. David Taylor

    Originally from Brighton I am a professional tennis coach based at the Kingsway Tennis Club, Hove. I started playing tennis at age 6 and immediately enjoyed the active, competitive and tactical aspects of the game.

    I represented my county at all age groups as a junior and enjoyed success at regional tournaments allowing me to qualify for the British Junior Nationals. Since then I have played University Tennis and for numerous club teams whilst also gaining my tennis coaching qualifications.

    I have taught all ages and abilities from Mini tennis red (aged 4+) through performance juniors at County Standard to adults of all abilities and techniques.

    I believe tennis lessons should be enjoyable and that when possible the emphasis should be less on rigid prescribed technique and more on tailoring your own natural abilities and style in combination with key tennis skills such as movement, anticipation, shot selection and tactical awareness.

    I am a LTA qualified and licenced tennis coach. I hold current Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) and First Aid Certificates.
