THE ANNUAL coaching week at Arbroath Tennis Club begins on Monday, July 11, with two well respected coaches ready to put pupils through their paces.

Mark Walter, who has coached players including Jonny O’Mara and Alice Keddie, will be back for another year.

He is a licensed professional coach who was voted Scottish Coach of the Year in 2008 as well as British Coach of the Month in May 2009.

Assisting Mark will be the club’s own Alistair Duncan, who has been playing tennis for over 50 years now.

He is a fully qualified LTA Development coach and has recently upgraded this qualification to club coach status.

His coaching time is divided between David Lloyd Tennis Centre in Monifieth and Arbroath where he is responsible for bringing through the juniors.

Coaching is available for all ages from four year olds to mature adults.
