Coaching experience
Hi, I’m Keely the Head Coach At East Wavertree. I have 18 years coaching experience. I run adult and children’s tennis programmes across the city for major organisations, tennis clubs and schools and have run LTA funded performance groups. My experience is widely ranged from beginners to high-performance county and national players, whatever your standard I can improve you. I have extensive coaching experience teaching all abilities and standards. As a player, I was taught by some of the best coaches in the country and now as a coach, I am a high level 4 CCA LTA Accredited plus coach and really enjoy attending frequent training courses run by Judy Murray.

Playing experience
I have been playing tennis for 30 years, consisting of competitive tennis and training at county, regional and national level. I am still competing in Liverpool League and I absolutely love the game. It’s part of who I am but it is also amazing for my health and well being.

Strengths
Teaching modern tennis in a fast easy way, helping people improve quickly no matter what their age or level and making tennis a fun, therapeutic sport for my clients.

Tia Morris
Coach
Level 3 LTA Accredited Tennis Coach

I first started tennis when I was only aged 4, unable to hit a ball and after 14 years of playing have grown to love not only playing, but teaching tennis. I started to coach 3 years ago at Liverpool Tennis Centre where I got to work with a complete range of people but spent most of my time there focusing upon Tots Tennis and trying to grow numbers on the programme and progress the Tots into Mini Red. I also had the chance to work on the Disability Programme taking Wheelchair and Visually Impaired Classes. I now work as a tennis coach at East Wavertree, David Lloyd and assist in School’s Tennis.

Testimonial
I am a big kid at heart and just love to be on court, having fun, whilst helping people improve their tennis. Whether this is a beginner or an advanced player, I am confident that all my creative sessions leave a player having learnt something new or wanting to continue to improve and play more tennis. Juego, Conjunto, Partido!
