Mike James

Director of Tennis

I learned to play tennis on a court built by my Father in Langata, just outside Nairobi in Kenya, and there began a love affair with the sport that was further ignited on the hard courts of Tucson, Arizona where I played High School and Division 1 College tennis (at The University of Arizona,  studying History and English) and continues today in my role as Director of Tennis for Halton Tennis Centre and founder of it's coaching brand and provider Everyball Tennis...

James Morgan

Head Coach and Programmes Director

I began playing tennis at the age of 11 after seeing a Davis Cup match on Channel 4 in December. I was immediately hooked after watching Stefan Edberg play and his graceful cat like movement at the net! I asked for tennis kit for my birthday in March the following year, and was also given lessons for the Easter break. After working really hard for 5 months after I had started playing, I attended a county sift day at Halton and was offered county...

I was introduced to tennis age 7 by a coach from my local tennis club in Chichester West Sussex. The coach was running a taster session at my primary school and I enjoyed the experience enough to spend the next week badgering my parents to take me along to a session at the club. My persistence paid off and the next week I went along to a Saturday morning pay and play session. The enthusiasm I had for the game after that first session grew in the following months and before long I was...

I discovered tennis aged 6 hitting an old ball against the wall at a friends’ house – I never wanted to go back inside! It prompted my tennis-loving mum to book me in for some tennis lessons and I never looked back.

My growing love for the game saw me compete regularly as a junior as part of the ‘Chesham 3 Star’ tennis programme that trained on public courts. I broke into the Bucks county squad from the age of 10 (with Jemima!), and remained part of the set-up throughout my teens –...
