Welcome to Mike Herd Tennis. Offering a wide range of tennis coaching and playing opportunities for all ages and standards. Popular club programmes take place at Helsby Tennis Club in Cheshire and Pen-y-ffordd Tennis Club in North East Wales, Flintshire.
Maybe you are looking to hit your first ever tennis ball…? or perhaps you are looking to dust down your racket from the loft…? or possibly you are an aspiring Andy Murray…? Mike and his team run sessions to meet your every need.
We offer a year round comprehensive program for both Juniors and Adults of all abilities throughout the week. We offer tots tennis, mini and junior tennis, cardio and doubles coaching, particularly suited to team players. Private groups and individual lessons are available by arrangement.
Mike took Pen-y-ffordd Tennis Club by storm when he took over the club's coaching as prior to him arriving, there was very little to entice new players to the club. He energised it by starting to run fun classes in the evenings and at weekends for adults & juniors, and holiday tennis relayed activities for children & teenagers. Mike is exceptionally proactive & welcoming and works hard to mentor & develop young players. My son loves being coached by him & knows that Mike always has his best interests at heart.
Just played for one hour with my newly strung racket and it felt really good. The new replacement grip and overgrip was also much more comfortable, so top score all round. Dave Hughes, team player.
Mike is an extremely friendly and professional tennis coach. He is methodical in his approach and is constantly working on the fundamentals. He keeps sessions fun and they are never repetitive or boring. Mike also coaches my son and daughter aged 7 and 15. He has great rapport with kids and always encourages them to play their best whilst, most importantly, having fun and enjoying the game.
Since Mike joined the club he has been a great success, he makes everyone feel welcome, no matter what he gives 110% every time he is here. He is not some boring coach that just does repetitive drills, he helps me with what I really need to work on to improve my tennis. Mike is a very technical coach, but he helps me learn through fun games and challenges, whilst having a crack and a joke at the same time. He makes everyone work their socks off! He is great!
