We are delighted to announce that Craig Phillips has been appointed as Wedmore Tennis Club’s new Head Coach. Craig has eight years’ coaching experience in Somerset and, as a player, has achieved a ranking of 52 in the country and number one in the county; he also is a member of Somerset’s Men’s County Cup team and has trained at Spain’s Global Tennis Academy, run by Rafa’s coach of nine years, Jofre Porta.

Having coached at and represented Wedmore since 2014, Craig is already well known to many members. However, a Meet the Coach afternoon has been organised for January 21st at 3pm at the Club. This will provide an opportunity for existing and potential members to speak to Craig and to committee members about coaching and junior events or simply about taking up tennis and joining the club. Tea and cake will be provided.


Craig offers adult coaching on Monday afternoons, Tuesday mornings, Thursday afternoons and evenings and he runs ladies sessions on Friday mornings. A cardio session runs on Wednesday mornings. These are open to both members and non-members. Do come along if you would like to try tennis for the first time or wish to return to playing.

Junior sessions for all levels, from tots to young performance players, are run Tuesdays to Saturdays; please see the website for full details of timings, groups and costs.

Craig has some very exciting ideas for holiday courses too, details of which will be released next month. These are open to both members and non-members.

Please contact Craig directly to arrange individual coaching or to book a place on a course, mobile 07546230727 or
