Sawbridgeworth Tennis Club is a National Satellite Centre for Performance and excels with the coaching of promising young tennis players.
The clubs that have been given Satellite status by the LTA are key to the development of tennis in Britain as they are responsible for developing up-and-coming young players and feeding into the 19 High Performance Centres (HPCs) across the country.
‘Spotlight’ from Pathway to Tarbes Newsletter
The following was recently reported as a case study in the Pathway to Tarbes Newsletter, showing how closely the Sawbridgeworth Coaching team work with the Gosling HPC:
"Gosling - Sawbridgeworth HPC Link
"Ian Zellner and Gary Davis from Sawbridgeworth recently attended the trip to the 'Petit As' tournament in Tarbes, France. The trip was organised to give coaches involved in the Pathway to Tarbes programme the opportunity to gain an awareness of standards at the highest level of under 14 international play.
"This is one of the many ways that Ian and his team make the most of their link with Gosling HPC. Ian also regularly attends Gosling with some of his junior players to help expand their programme while also being in an environment where coaches share ideas and knowledge. During his time at Gosling on Thursday Ian takes time to get involved with the Pathway to Tarbes programme providing a vital link with his Sportsmatch and club programme.
"Well done Sawbridgeworth."
