I’m Emma and I’m passionate about teaching and inspiring children at a young age and watching their confidence and ability grow through sport. Being involved in tennis at an early age really helps children to develop their co-ordination, balance and agility which is important for any sport going forward.
I’m a Level 3 LTA Accredited Plus Tennis coach. First aid and DBS checked. I have worked as a tennis coach teaching children of all ages for over 5 years in the UK, Greece and New Zealand, and more recently as a Playball multisports Coach in the local area. I set up Little Aces in 2018 to provide a great introduction to tennis for children under 7 in Marlow.
I’ve been playing tennis since I was 4, and have competed at junior county level. I’m also a 1st team player at Marlow Tennis Club. As a local mum of 2 young children, I’ve got first-hand experience of dealing with this age group and how to get the very best out of them.
“Rufus attended Emma’s weekly class for over 2 years and week by week I watched him become more confident amongst his peers and grasp fine motor skills. Emma's passion for teaching children is infectious, she always goes the extra mile to integrate each child into the group and they thrive in her company. My 5 year old son is now keen to try all new sports and is confident to join in with his peer group. Thank you Emma for providing such a positive start for Rufus, it’s made all the difference."

"Emma is a natural with children and it was a pleasure to watch her passion for tennis shine through whilst coaching my five year old daughter. She is fun and upbeat, and successfully introduced important ball skills and principles such as playing as a team to my daughter. I would thoroughly recommend Emma as a children’s tennis coach and can’t wait for my son to be old enough to join her." Lucy, 2017
