Train With The Best

Carisbrooke is proud to have one of the strongest coaching programmes in the county, led by Head Coach Jack Simpson and supported by Club Coaches Sam Preston and Jonny Cloke.
The trio have had highly successful tennis careers, with all winning multiple county titles and being selected for the Leicestershire men’s summer and winter county teams.
The club offers a full and varied seasonal coaching programme for juniors and seniors, including group sessions and individual one-on-one lessons.
Our coaches teach young players from Mini-red, orange and green level right through to performance-level standards.
We also offer weekly cardio tennis, doubles masterclass lessons and group sessions for beginners.


Jack Simpson

Head Coach & Level 4 Development & Performance Coach

My role at Carisbrooke as Head Coach is to oversee the junior development programme, the junior performance programme and the adults’ programme. 
I have been coaching for more than fifteen years now in a number of different environments and have now established myself in club coaching. I graduated from Stirling University in 2008 where I was on a tennis scholarship, obtaining a degree in Sport and Business Studies.

Sam Preston

Performance Coach (Level 4)

I have been working as a tennis coach for 13 years now, coaching players of all ages and abilities .
For the past two years, I have focused on performance coaching at Carisbrooke and have also been fortunate enough to spend time on court with the Midlands coaching team assisting with the delivery of regional camps and weekly regional training at the county centre of excellence at Loughborough University.
I am a lifelong tennis enthusiast who has played the game since I was five-years-old, playing at club, county and national level. I still compete for the Leicestershire county men’s team with my team-mate Jack Simpson, who I now work with on the coaching team at Carisbrooke. 
See you at the club soon!
