Tennis coaching – recommended by Josephine Macintosh

I take lessons on the Square with my coach, Abdul, and wanted to recommend him to anyone else who might be interested in lessons. He has taught me from scratch and is a talented coach. He came highly recommended by experienced players on Ladbroke Square (Notting Hill communal square) and in South Kensington. I drag him out to Pimlico for lessons so if he can make it even more worth his while with additional players on the Square, that would of course be wonderful. If you are interested then please contact me, Josephine Macintosh, on 07779 409 679 and I will pass on requests to Abdul. He is competitively priced given his experience and skill.
