Matt Parry

I am a level 3 qualified coach from Wales who has played at a high club level for a number of years. My playing experience has enabled me to teach all ranges of abilities from beginners and advanced players. Being a Welshman, I am used to coaching in all-weather conditions, rain or shine (mainly the former!). It takes a lot to scare me away from lessons and getting on court. 

Daryl Streeton

Daryl has lived in Oxford all his life, and when growing up he was quite into golf, then watched federer at Wimbledon when he was 20 and completely fell in love with the game, especially witnessing Federer hit that single handed backhand. He started playing competitively a few years later and is now looking to help improve players around oxford and get more people involved in tennis loving the game like he does. He's currently a level 2 coach and looking at doing his level 3 in the near future.
