Chris Lockyer LTA Licensed Tennis Coach
You can brush up your technique and skills with one-to-one coaching or in a small group. For club members and non-club members the coaching rate is £20 per hour. Visitors who would like coaching would also pay a fee of £5 per person to Keswick Tennis Club.
Small subtle changes can make a big difference to your game so lets move you up a level! During the lessons you can really give attention to ‘problem-areas’ and through quality repetition we can really give you a chance to sort them out.
Coaching with Chris is available from 3.00pm: Monday to Saturday. Please see contact details at the bottom of the page.
Chris’ Racquet Restringing Service
Chris is also a trained BTCA (British Tennis Coaches Association) Racquet Stringer. A wide spectrum of string is available from a basic nylon to hybrids (two different strings on one racquet). Gut is the ultimate string, unsurpassed by synthetics although they are very close. Two big downsides to gut is (1) its useless in wet weather and (2) its expensive.
String Tension Check
Free string tension check with a string ‘mini-computer’.
Loose strings = power but not much control.
Tight strings = control – you’ll have to produce more power!
New Racquets Available
Racquets last a long time (under normal playing conditions!) and the type of weapon you play with does affect stroke performance! Professional advice is given, if you wish, on what to look out for before spending your hard earned dosh! You can have a go at testing out the different racquet weights and head sizes to see what the differences feel like.
The weight, balance, string pattern, grip-size of a racquet are important factors that are often overlooked when buying a racquet.
