Anyone can play tennis

It’s what we believe at Tennis by Nature. What matters is building up your confidence and helping you find your own unique abilities – so you make progress, a step at a time. Tennis is all about fun. It’s brilliant for improving not just physical health but mental health too.

I’m Gary Markham. I’m an LTA accredited level 3 tennis coach who teaches people of all ages, from beginners to advanced.

I set up Tennis by Nature because I’m absolutely passionate about improving and developing all players. I’m completely dedicated to an inclusive approach – and to taking the time (and care) to make sure every student really enjoys and benefits from their lessons.

Gary Markham – LTA accredited level 3 tennis coach, DBS, First Aid, Safeguard, HM Government Prevent Awareness Course certification.
