Individual and Group Coaching

Here at matchplaysport we have specialist coaches available to design your coaching programme for improvement and get you to a higher performance level fast.

Whether you need one-on-one individual work, small group sessions of perhaps three plus the coach, or larger group training with a greater variety of competition, we can meet your requirements. We can even bring a specialist coach along to your club environment to motivate and inspire if you wish.

Midlands Regional Training Squads

The highly successful East Midlands Regional Performance Squad is back. We have had tremendous success in the past providing the opportunity for the best players in each county to compete with each other.

So now you are invited to gain access to the vast experience of Donna Kellogg and Andy Wood. They have played with and coached the best players in the world over the last four Olympic cycles which included Sydney 2000, Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008.

They will be coordinating and delivering the Regional Squad Trials Weekend and the subsequent training opportunities.

Visit our events page for more information.

Coaching At Tournaments

In the opinion of our specialists, one area that is massively under-utilised is performance coaching at tournaments and competitions.

This can include pre-match preparation, motivational DVDs, visualisation, analysing opponents and personal performance, charting matches, post-match de-briefs, courtside intervals, active rest and recovery between matches, mental toughness and coaching off the court.

These are all critical factors in maximising performance at tournaments and competitions. Matchplaysport offers you the opportunity to hire a coach/mentor to accompany you or your team and advise and support you throughout the pressure environment of competition.
