Louis Cayer, the undisputed ‘number one doubles coach’, is heading to Edgbaston Priory Club for one day only to hold intimate breakfast and evening events and deliver two special masterclass coaching sessions for juniors and adults.
Organised by specialist coaching and tour operators Ethan Mason Sports and Tennis Smart, the action-packed event will take place at the Club on Sunday 3rd February.
Budding players and tennis lovers will be able to explore Louis’ coaching methods and experience of working with 10 ‘top 100’ singles players and coaching Jamie Murray, whilst the latter was making his way to become the world number one in doubles.
He is also known for his skills development and writing all of the coaching manuals for the LTA, including technical aspects around movement on the ‘3 volleys’.
“This is the first time we’ve been able to get Louis Cayer to visit the Midlands and we want to make the most of his knowledge and expertise through a range of different activities that suit all ages,” explained John Donnelly, Chairman of Ethan Mason Sports.
“It all kicks-off with an exclusive breakfast for nine people where guests can ask Louis about his career, coaching tips and tales from the hundreds of tournaments he’s been part of.”
He continued: “We’ve also got an ‘Audience With’ event planned for the evening, with Fix Radio Show Presenter Paul Burrell conducting an interview before opening up a Q&A to the floor. There’ll also be an opportunity for photographs.”
Juniors, adults and their coaches will also be able to take part in two coaching masterclasses, with Louis Cayer providing on court-sessions covering technique, movement, the ‘three volleys’, match psychology and tips for playing as part of a doubles team.
All participants will be given a debrief by Louis and a souvenir water bottle and printed t-shirt to remember the day.
Louis Cayer added his support: “I really enjoy these events, where you can talk tennis to people who love the sport and try to give them an insight into coaching that they perhaps would never normally get. Edgbaston has always been a great venue for tennis so I’m delighted to be returning and meeting lots of players and supporters.”
