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...

Jemima King

Senior Coach

I learned to play tennis at Halton when my Mum brought me down to the club when I was 5 years old.  If it was competitive, I enjoyed it and tennis, hockey and running were my favourite sports growing up.  I remember after the 10&U county closed competition receiving a letter inviting me to county training. I was part of the county set up from 10&U to 18&U, playing in the senior team from 15 years old.

After completing school I received a full tennis...

Sam Kilhams

Club Coach and Strength & Conditioning Trainer

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...

Tom Edis

Club Coach

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...

Josh Greenway

Club Coach

I first started playing tennis when I was 5 and I loved it. I always wanted to be on court and this led me to eventually playing tennis 4 times a week! I got into my first county squad in my last year of red ball and then for the next couple of years I managed to stay dedicated and worked my way into the 10u county team, coached by our very own Tom Edis, (feeling older Tom?)

I then took a few years off from tennis in my teens due to persistent bouts of Glandular...

Joshua Bright

Aged 2, my dad brought me to the tennis club where he was coaching, and this is where I started hitting some tennis balls.  Soon after around age 4 my parents brought me to Halton for my first session and I have been a member ever since. I tried many different sports during my time at school, but nothing ever took me away from playing tennis.

As a junior I played at County level and was coached by many of the coaches that I am now working alongside.  When I reached the under 12 age...
