My name is Ryan Bougourd, Head Coach at Bovey Tracey Lawn Tennis Club and a Level 4 LTA Coach. I am enjoying every moment of my position here, and am over the moon to be awarded Devon Tennis Coach of the Year 2018!
“I coach all ages from 4 years old, and am eager that children start playing at this young age so they understand the basics of tennis and also enjoy running around. The Junior section has gone from strength to strength with 95 Juniors playing in and outside the Club. I have set up classes for all ages, individuals and groups, and hold holiday camps during the school breaks. I also organise the annual Club Tournament for all the Club members.”
Coaching sessions for individuals are £20 per hour and for groups from £5.00 per hour. In addition, a ball machine can be hired for £15 per hour, or with my in-depth coaching analysis £30 per hour.
From a parent: “As a family with two tennis-mad boys, we’re delighted with the standard of junior coaching at Bovey Tracey, both in 1to1s with Ryan, and the many group sessions he runs, and we highly recommend the club to juniors of all standards.”
