Martin Terrill - Director of Coaching
“At the age of 13 my passion for tennis developed and I knew that this sport was going to play a large part in my future. My enthusiasm for tennis still remains today through the delivery and dedication of my coaching. Since 1999 I have gained much experience in teaching all standards of players, ranging from complete beginners to county level.
I began coaching full time in 2001 as Head Coach at Don Perrin Tennis in Alresford. Over the years I played a large part in building the business where I had a range of responsibilities; listing from overseeing two other coaches, to organising tournament schedules and arranging tennis training holidays in Spain and Belgium.
In 2010 I started Absolute Tennis at The Mountbatten School. The school were looking for a coach to build a tennis program to make use of the excellent facilities, offering community tennis for all levels of players. I was passionate about creating a tennis club, utilising the experience I have gained working for someone else.
Today I enjoy the exciting challenges that running a tennis club offer both on and off the tennis court. My true reward and motivation is to see people develop tennis as a life skill that the whole family can enjoy.”
