It all began with our manager
It began with our manager Lyall who began playing with his family aged 8. After teaching tennis as a module in transition year he knew he wanted to become a coach.
On a tennis scholarship he moved to America to study sports psychology and completed his coaching qualifications in England.
After experiencing the highs and lows of competitive play and learning from some of the best coaches on his travels Lyall returned home to teach full time.
In 2014, Lyall along with Laura O'Brien opened LC Tennis.
Starting first as an academy teaching all levels and ages players were keen to put their coaching to good use in a club setting.
To be able to offer more Lyall and Laura began working with juniors who they recognised could go on to become coaches in their own right.
And so with the help of a young enthusiastic team a club was formed.
Together for seven years and counting our academy, team and membership continues to grow.
We understand this past year has brought many challenges and we are delighted to be able to welcome new faces as we teach, learn and enjoy the game together.
