About Me

Hi, I’m Zak! I’m a qualified PTR tennis coach offering individual and group tennis lessons in and around Chelmsford, Essex.

I coach mostly at Hamptons Sports and Leisure in Great Baddow, Chelmsford, Essex. I may be able to come to a location of your choice (please get in touch to discuss).

I’ve played tennis most of my life and read every book I could find on techniques, always striving to improve my own game.

Now I hope to do the same for others, whether it’s a complete beginner wanting to learn the basics or an experienced player wanting to improve their technique and tactics.

I live and breathe tennis, but I am also a Marvel fan and like to geek out in my spare time! My favourite character is Deadpool and you can find me at the midnight showing of any Marvel film!

I have been playing tennis for over 20 years and my favourite tennis player is Federer.

I recently returned to tennis after a lengthy break and have struggled with new grips and basic volleying etc. I met Zak who was kind enough to give me some pointers which then extended itself to some lessons from which I am pleased to say with his knowledge and patience has helped me greatly. As a result I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve his/her game. Thanks!

Happy Student

You’ll immediately discover how much knowledge he has on tennis. Because he is such a high-level player himself he can demonstrate the techniques and makes it look so easy. When he did a few tennis serves as an example, I think I might have seen flames coming off the back of the tennis ball!

Zak is a good tennis coach with a high level of athleticism and to top it off a wonderful person. Look no further, you’ve found your tennis coach.
