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.”
Frazer Hussey - LTA Licensed Coach
“I have been playing tennis since I was 9 years old, competing in tournaments and in my early teens, was in the top 20 in Hampshire. My favourite tennis player is Novak Djockovic, who has greatly inspired me over the past few years. My coaching carrier started working as a tennis assistant at Warsash Tennis Club, then at The Hampshire Tennis and Health Club, where I gained first hand experience of 'the trade' learning from their respective club coaches.
This valuable experience stood me in good stead when in 2009, I began working as a full club coach at Thornden Tennis Club. Here I had the pleasure of working with players from 5 years old, up to adults who regularly compete. In the spring of 2012 I started working with Martin at Absolute Tennis. As the club was growing so quickly, they required a coach to take on the delivery of their schools' program, along with hosting club groups.
I think tennis is a great sport as it's very sociable, applies you mentally and of course is brilliant for your fitness. I like to create a fun experience in my coaching as well as developing player's skills in tennis and other goals they have. In my spare time I like to go to the gym, listen to music and am a film fanatic.”
