Our Tennis Pro

Hi, my name's Joe Chadwick and I arrived at the club in July 2018. I've been playing tennis since I was 5 years old (against the garage door) and currently play on the ITF Seniors Tour having reached an international ranking of 300.

Cheltenham is my old University town and I've very fond memories of my time here and its great to be back.

I've been teaching tennis since 2001 and have worked in the UK, US, Europe and Australia. Most recently I've been living and working in Bridport, Dorset.

I'm an LTA Level 4 Accredited Tennis Professional and also have certification with the RPT and USPTR. I am fully insured with a current DBS check and am first aid qualified. I can provide all documentation on request.

My foundations are in developmental tennis coaching and I also have experience teaching high performance juniors.

I look forward to growing the tennis programme at The Cheltenham Civil Service Tennis Club and please get in touch with me if you have any tennis queries and I'll be happy to meet you at the club.

Adult Coaching

Beginners – A great place to start is our free half hour coaching session with Joe. You will then have the choice to head to courts with some teaching points or continue with some individual or group coaching to really improve your game.

Rusty Returners – Why not try one of our six social tennis sessions every week. It’s a great way to meet other members. If your goal is to play in a team, then some coaching may be beneficial to achieving this.

Experienced / Team players – There are currently six teams in the Gloucestershire Summer League; Four men's and two womens. The league tennis is a well supported and important area of club life and we are also active in the Winter Gloucestershire Mixed Leagues. If your goal is to progress up through the teams then you may be interested in Joe's individual, small private group or club group tennis sessions.


Junior Coaching

The junior section is an area the club and Joe are very keen to develop. Our goal is the offer coaching and memberships at competitive rates in a fun, positive and rewarding environment.
