Appointment of new Tennis Coaching Team

We are excited to announce that from August 2022 we will have a new coaching team delivering our tennis coaching programme. The Club is incredibly excited to welcome on board…
🎾Aspire Tennis Coaching🎾

Aspire Tennis Coaching comprises of Sohail Shah, Neil Haig and Luke Wilson.
The trio represent an incredible enhancement of the coaching programme at the Club and we cannot wait for them to get started!

Sohail is a Level 4 Accredited LTA coach and also holds several Spanish and American coaching qualifications. He has regularly competed in the West Of Scotland Premier League and represented the North of Scotland county team.
He has been involved in tennis in the UK for over 26 years, as a coach, player, and hitting partner for international players. Sohail has held positions as Tennis Director for David Lloyd Club in Manchester and Esporta Health Fitness Hamilton/Milngavie.

He has coached from beginner level right through to county and national level juniors. Sohail has been running Aspire Tennis since 2010, and in that time, has successfully set up junior and adult coaching programmes, tournaments and LTA and community initiatives.

Neil is a Level 3 Accredited coach. He has been coaching for 19 years at many different clubs across the West of Scotland. For him, tennis is all about having fun while you work hard and his sessions are built around this ethos. Neil works with all ages and abilities and believes he can help any player improve their all round game.

Our very own Luke Wilson is a Level 2 Accredited coach and will remain very much part of the Aspire Coaching Team at Uddingston. Many of you know Luke and are aware of his skills and how much he is already appreciated at our club. We cannot thank him enough for his support over the last few months.
