Ross Sheppard

LTA Licensed Level 4 Senior Performance Coach

T: 07730 560354


Ross’ tennis journey started fairly late in comparison to the world of elite tennis players.

At 15 he fell in love with the game and hasn’t stopped playing since. Aged 18 he went to train at one of the top academies in the country where he experienced what it is like to train as a dedicated full-time athlete. Over a two-year period, of training for up to 8 hours a day, he established himself on the tennis circuit competing regularly at National level events.

Graduating from player to coach, Ross honed his coaching skills at Sutton Tennis Academy for 8 years. Ross’ main role saw him lead Sutton Tennis Academy’s prestigious Scholarship programme, where he coached many Top 5 national players travelling both Nationally and Internationally with them to watch them play in some very high profile competitions.

More recently Ross was working as Tennis Director at Vrgin Active West London and he now joins us at The Wimbledon Club as Tennis Director. He will bring with him a wealth of knowledge and experience that will help him to develop and enhance our members tennis and experiences at the club. There’s no doubt you will find his enthusiasm and passion for the game infectious.

Hourly private rate for individual tennis lessons - £45.
