Willand Tennis club update and coaching changes

Dear All, 

 Our club coach, Charlie Lee, is leaving Willand Tennis Club at the end of the month for pastures new. I hope you can join me in wishing Charlie the very very best for the future and thank him for his hard work and coaching efforts over the last 18 months. 


From July we are very excited to welcome Nigel Little as our new coach! Nigel brings to the club and mid Devon a wealth of experience both as a player and a coach. He himself has been a tennis coach (with the LTA)  for 10years, in and around the Berkshire area. He’s already had a big impact at the club both socially (local fun tournaments) and playing for the Willand TC teams.


Therefore from the month of July Nigel will take over from all of Charlie’s coaching on a Tuesdays..  We will be in touch with the Friday evening adults and juniors in due course with the intention of offering another option to a Tuesday. If you have any concerns or would like to speak to Nigel about any of this his number is 07951 140974 or give me a call on 07722118703.


We hope that by the start of September we will have everything in place so please be patient and support us as we have a relatively new committee. Adult membership have already increase this year and hope to continue actively/heavily advertising the club during July and August in order to generate more interest in tennis; especially with new/past Junior members and adult who used to play.


Lastly we are still using Facebook ( as our primary means of advertising the club but we are looking to distribute leaflets in and around Willand/Cullompton during the holidays.. As always please like and share our facebook page for up to date information.
