- www.tennisdrills.tv – Jorge Capestany’s paid membership site is the daddy of drills sites. 1000s of video drills. Even if you only sign up for a month, you’ll get a HUGE amount of value.
- UK ONLY – For accredited coaches in the UK, the resources section in your coach area now has some really good content as far as technical development and drills.

- www.tennisresources.com – is a site
with paid and free content. At a glance it looks like there’s plenty of useful
stuff in the free section. It’s free for USPTA members.
- Motor Skills Learning is a youtube channel with some really useful videos for your ‘tots tennis’ sessions (under 5s). It’s also a subscription website but there are plenty of good free videos on their youtube channel.
- The Tennis At Home page from Net Generation has loads of ‘at home’ drills (and other resources). Many of these will be good for normal sessions as well.
- And the USTA also has some ‘at home’ stuff for adults HERE.

The following all seem to be part of Sport England, offering useful resources:
- Sport England – this website has a wealth of resources and knowledge for clubs and coaches just too much to describe.
- Surrey Coaches Club
- Club Matters
Promoting Activity – a UK site, but could be useful for anyone. If you dig into it, you’ll find some great marketing resources and case studies.
- Recycaball – this is a charity which will pay you for your used balls, then donates them to charitable causes. Or, instead of paying you, they’ll give you a ball recycling unit for your club. Looks great and I’ll be trying it next time we have a large amount of used balls to get rid of.
ServeSPORT.co.uk – formerly GB Sport but now covering Europe. This company, run by Mike Lynch is great for help with business, tax, governance of clubs, advice for coaches, marketing & finance. Some great free stuff on the website and Facebook page as well as paid services. I’ve personally been on Mike’s courses and used his consultancy service.
