  • Meet Ben

    Ben Orton – Tennis Coach

     

    As an experienced tennis coach and competitive player (with over 30 years playing experience), I am passionate about getting people involved in tennis, to learn new skills, further develop existing ones, and, most importantly, to have fun while playing. Here, at York Sport Centre, there are a range of sessions available for every type of player, both juniors and adults.

    As a club coach, I provide individual lessons tailored to you and the level of tennis you play. I have experience of coaching young children who have never picked up a racket before, adult beginners, cardio tennis and high-performance tennis at county level.

I have loved working at York Sport Tennis summer camps and in the past have worked part time at Liverpool Tennis Centre coaching a range of different ages, from Mini Red to Cardio Tennis for adults. I have been coaching at York Sport since I started University in 2016 and I hope to continue coaching for as long as possible; passing on my knowledge and love for the sport.

    Bio:

    I have been playing tennis for nearly 20 years, and coaching for the past three. I am a student here at the University of York and I take on a variety of roles within the Sports Centre, including assisting with tennis coaching and running parties. I have lots of experience teaching kids, as I have taught golf, football and tennis at Summer Camps, local clubs and at schools.

    I thoroughly enjoy teaching and watching students’ skills develop over hours, days and weeks. I am very glad to be working with the York Sport Centre and I hope to continue teaching for many years to come!
