Tennis Coaches

As with all Jonathan Markson Clinics, the coaches are selected by our experienced Jonathan Markson Team. Coaches are selected not just for their technical knowledge or playing proficiency but also their enthusiasm and motivational qualities.

Our aim is to create a dynamic but also enjoyable atmosphere, in which players of all levels improve technically, physically and mentally. Our success is shown in the number of returning players we get each year.

Our Head Coach at the London Tennis Clinic is Erwan Nicolas. Erwan is a Master Performance Coach (LTA Level 5) and currently coaches at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton.

You can read more about Erwan in his interview with TennisHead magazine.




Tennis CLinic Details

The tennis

5 hours of intenisve tennis coaching per day from 10 am and 4.30 pm. The morning session will involve a demonstration followed by a warm-up and then drills aimed at improving technique and consistency. The afternoon session will concentrate more on competitive play, tactics and mental attitude.

The course is designed for beginners, intermediates and advanced
players. Children and adults will be coached in separate groups (Please note the only Clinic open to children is from the 27th July). 

Video analysis

All participants have the option of being filmed on video at the start and end of the clinic. Each tennis stroke is subjected to expert analysis. Video analysis can help you and your coach identify even the smallest changes to vastly improve your game. Read more about our coaching philosophy .

Under 10's - ITF Package

To help children under 10 (non-residents) improve their tennis we run an ITF approved training programme which includes the special starter balls, nets and re-marked smaller courts.

Racket test

During the Clinic you will have the opportunity to test some of the latest tennis rackets from our sponsor, Wilson .


The courses include good, nutritionally balanced lunches provided by an experienced chef. For teas and coffees and alcoholic beverages (adults only), there is a café on site as well as a Starbucks within short walking distance.


Children will be supervised at all times and will not be allowed to leave the site without parental permission unless accompanied by a tennis coach.

Limited availability

Availability will be limited. Please therefore book up early to avoid disappointment. We will accept bookings on a first-come first-served basis.

Parking and transport

There is free parking on site. Barn Elms is also well served by local bus and train services.


Client Feedback

London Tennis Camp (Barnes), August 2013

I have been attending the JMT camp in Barnes for a great number of years, and therefore probably one of your most loyal customers. As for a service provider, the company has maintained the consistency of deliveries throughout the years. Despite the fact that the products, environment and theme of the delivery remain unchanged, the presence of professionalism and relationship management were notable this year.
The coaching staffs demonstrated not only the professionalism under their codes of conduct, but also a clear understanding of excellent customer services.  All of us were treated with the respect to our individual needs throughout all the variety of technical themes being delivered.

 [ED: This was part of an excellent feedback email with some excellent points. We didn’t get everything right but it was all really constructive. We will keep listening to our clients and keep trying to deliver a better and better service]

London tennis Camp (Barnes), August 2013

Hello! I'm not sure that I have responded to this so just in case I have not - thank you! That little kick out thing that I do in this video is a bit cringe worthy! I'm so pleased that I know how to serve. Also wanted to say that I had the best time at tennis camp last month. All of the coaches were brilliant and brought a different quality to the weekend. The hot meal in the middle of the day was perfect - I don't think we would have been able to sustain our energy levels without it. It was also great that we were given extra time on the Sunday and Monday on account of the bad weather on the Saturday. One thing I would suggest is that it would have been good to do video analysis at the beginning of the weekend and at the end so that participants could track their progress. A minor point. [ED. We would normally offer the before and after video at the camp but the rain delay meant this could not be done for the camp. We prioritised court time]. I have definitely been inspired to play more as a result of the course. I have now joined my local tennis club and play every week. It was great to meet you too. Hope to see you again next year!
