Skills4sport & Roade LTC

  Alex Dunn set up Skills4sport as a coaching organisation focusing on the fundamental of racket sports and developing the athlete to achieve his or her potential. 

Alex has been a tennis coach since 2004 and is currently an LTA accredited + coach, and has been coaching at Roade for the past 13 years. During that time he has developed a strong school club link programme with local primary and secondary schools. The coaching programme takes place mainly at the tennis club with some schools offering breakfast clubs.

The junior programme covers  mini & me (parents and children on court), mini tennis and development squads. There is a leadership programme that runs with the local secondary school, this is important as Roade hosts Level 1 & Level 2 tennis competitions for the Northants school games and the leaders are a vital part of the tournament running smoothly.

For any club to gain success and develop an adult programme needs to support the regular members and teams currently at the club. Alex has also developed the adult programme at the club (Cardio tennis, beginners coaching and 'rusty rackets'). However, this is mainly run over the Spring and Summer term. 

Both programmes have benefitted the club as Roade now runs 4 teams in the local league.
