Imogen Coaches Tennis Tots

Iimogenmogen Porter lives in Peppard with her family and started playing tennis at Peppard Lawn Tennis Club when she was 10 years old. Now, aged 15, she attends Gillots School, Henley, where she is Games Captain for her house, helps out in the PE Department, helps to run Sports’ Day and is in the netball, rounders and hockey teams. She will take her GCSEs next year and it is no surprise that PE is one of her chosen subjects! Apart from tennis, Imogen’s other out-of-school sports activity is athletics at Palmer Park, Reading.

She undertakes tennis coaching herself twice a week and is an assistant coach with the younger 4-7 year old age group, and helped at the last Tennis Camp at the Peppard Club with a group of 21 younger children. Imogen told me that of all her sporting interests, tennis is her favourite and she loves coaching.

She was nominated as a Young Achiever by her tennis coach and is clearly valued by the club for her help with the younger children.
