ILMINSTER Tennis Club has announced Luke Andrews as its new head coach.

Andrews is a Level 4 qualified coach specialising in mini tennis and adult tennis, and is a solid coach across the board.

He has 16 years’ coaching experience, having worked in Hampshire, London, Somerset and Australia.

Ilminster Tennis Club has some of the best facilities in the local area for club tennis, with three hard courts with floodlights.

The club works with Ilminster Bowling Club and has created a catchment area for new, young and old tennis players to come and enjoy competitive or social games.

Andrews is to head up a new team of coaches at the club, which will also be bringing Luke Marshall on board shortly, to focus on the children’s tennis programme which he and Andrews will both be working on.

They will be setting up the coaching programmes for the coming months, with big plans to introduce new tennis sessions.

Ilminster Tennis Club is planning the current series of tennis programmes over the next few months, so if you wish to register interest for these, you can check out the club's website.
