Tim Henman Mentors the Tennis Stars of Tomorrow

A tennis masterclass with former British Number One Tim Henman was held by Jaguar Academy of Sport at David Lloyd Leisure Oxford on Tuesday (June 12).

The masterclass saw Jaguar Academy of Sport Rising Stars Joshua Ward-Hibbert from Nottingham, Emma Devine from Edinburgh and wheelchair tennis player Richard Green from Essex take on knowledge, advice and skills from Tim, Academy ambassador.

Nine David Lloyd Oxford members were also given the opportunity to get some top tips from the former British champ.

Tim commented: Joshua, Emma and Richard are three very talented young tennis players and its been a delight to work with them. Hopefully, some of the knowledge I have imparted will help them in their upcoming training and competitions.

Tim Henman Joshua Ward-Hibbert commented: Tim is one of my heroes and a British tennis great. To have the opportunity to have some one-to-one mentoring with him is fantastic and everything he has said will help me achieve my dreams.

Adrian Robinson, sports manager at David Lloyd Oxford, added: We were delighted when the Jaguar Academy of Sport asked us to host the masterclass with Tim Henman. It provided a fantastic experience for members, who help organise our club tennis teams and run our weekly club sessions, to get some one-on-one time with him and advice on how to improve their game. It was also a thrilling opportunity to watch Tim up close from the next court coaching and playing with the up and coming stars.

The Jaguar Academy of Sport aims to recognise, celebrate and inspire the very best of British sporting talent and success. This is fulfilled through a Bursary Fund and a unique Mentoring and Education Programme (MEP) delivered by Kelly Holmes Education.
