Jamie is also a qualified tournament referee and tournament organiser for the LTA so he will be developing a competition structure within Premier Tennis at all our facilities. 

Jamie has been coaching for 12 years, he is a very enthusiastic and passionate Coach who is able to work with every level of player.

He has represented Great Britain as part of the GB Team that went to the Deaf Olympics.

Jamie gained some invaluable experiences which has helped him in his coaching today, focusing on nurturing and developing players to a high standard.

I eat, sleep and breathe tennis, but when I am not on a tennis court I enjoy supporting saints, socializing with friends and chilling out at home.

Jemma Raeburn

We are very pleased to have Jemma on board as a member of our Coaching Team in Hampshire and has a strong background in developing grass roots tennis across the area including Portswood Tennis Club (2012-2014) and Southampton community parks (2011-2012).

An Internship with the British Tennis Foundation, developing tennis within the Hertfordshire community, Gosling High Performance Centre and University of Hertfordshire allowed her to grow the University programme from scratch to 70 players in a season, catering for all levels of players from club to social showing Jemma's natural ability to engage with players and facilitate learning. 

I enjoy anything that involves being outside, from walking the dogs to ironman triathlons and ultra-running. I love sea swimming, all year round, and once had to be rescued by my swimming friends as I was floating out to sea on an inflatable unicorn.
