"Jay is a fantastic coach. The hour went by seemingly in minutes. He is so patient with everyone and it was a small group so easy to almost get one on one tuition. I can highly recommend Jay and cannot wait for my next lesson after lockdown!"
"I have really enjoyed having Jay as my tennis coach. His coaching style has helped me improve my game immensely. What I like most about his coaching style is that he adapts his coaching methods as per the client’s strengths and weaknesses. Highly recommend!"
“Jay has provided us with excellent feedback and encouragement throughout his sessions with us. He is flexible with his lesson plans and tailors these to fit the progress we have made. Rain or shine we always have a great time. We cannot recommend Jay highly enough!“

“Jay is a natural coach, encouraging as well as gently insistent on attention to technical aspects needed for progress and enjoyment of the game. I have no hesitation at all in recommending him.“
“Jay is extremely professional, always on time, and very keen to work around the student's needs. Not only is he a great instructor but also provides thorough feedback on progress. His coaching skills are excellent, very flexible in adapting the classes based on progress. I would strongly recommend him!.”
“I have attended Jay’s beginners 6 weeks course. I have no prior knowledge or experience in playing tennis, but Jay is patient and his lessons are very structured which I have benefited a lot. My basic techniques have improved with his clear instructions and guidance. My 4 years old son just started attending the children course. He has been looking forward to it every week. He enjoys the games and drills Jay organised. I would definitely recommend Jay to anyone who is interested in Adult or children lessons.”
"I always look forward to the sessions with Jay. The sessions are always good fun - whether it is a group or private session. Jay is very encouraging. He observes and identifies specific areas we need to improve and point those out to us with a tailored solution. I heard about him before and now I recommend his sessions to everyone I know who is interested in tennis. Got my husband involved too and Jay is helping us get to the level where we can play together well in a sport we both enjoy."
I've not played tennis until I joined the tennis sessions at Decathlon taught by Jay. He has been my tennis instructor for the last 4 months and I must say I can play tennis now! Jay coaches me in group sessions as well as 1:1. He is very patient, explains the rules well and demonstrates the techniques step by step. He is encouraging and also gives constructive criticism when needed. From one session to the other we build on progression, learning new skills and strengthening the prior learning. He is also great with young children - on one Inset day, my children attended my tennis session and Jay inspired them to have a go at playing, which they really enjoyed. I highly recommend Jay!
My daughter has been taking the 1 to 1 lessons, she has made amazing progress and really enjoys the lessons...highly recommend .
