Yes Liudmila! I remember you. I hope you are brining the children and Parvati to our Summer Camp this year. Please email me on ksiva@talktalk.net

I am mainly and successfully coaching private one-to-one and upto four-players groups for adults. There is another provison of larger group-coaching at Clapham Common, but I WOULD NOT recommend them due to over-sized groups being constrained with managing ball-skills with minial actual ball-hitting to develop the individual's tennis...

Please feel free to arrange a small-group and contact me for private affordable and efficacious tennis development. That is my recommendation. Hope you are well!

Regards
Krishna

LineBall Tennis have started their successful summer school-holidays tennis camp for juniors again!

But hey people! Lineball Tennis are also looking to build a select specialised and added-value after-work groups for adults, especially after witnessing "rubbish" training by another larger rival tennis outfit.

If anyone is interested in such an alternative tennis lessons for adult-group, or can suggest an alternative suitabble advertising platform for this adult group tennis coaching please comment here on this NappyValley thread, or email: lineball@tallktalk.net

p.s. the rubbish description in quotes was by dissatisfied customer of the rival tennis outfit.

In gratitude,
Krishna Siva -

Hi there, Krishna.

I was looking to send my child to a tennis camp as he has developed a keen interest for the sport and I saw both your brand and the other one advertised and I'm torn. I check the "rubbish" one you speak of and it caters to my needs for several reasons.

They have a lot of staff managing children and where they might not be the greatest coaches, they seem to be all enjoying themselves and there's more than one coach for the amount of children. Whenever they have experienced rain, they seem to take the children into a small building where they remain until the weather is suitable outside. You, from what I've seen, have allowed children to play in the rain while you sit under the shelter next to the court. Now where it seems like it's their choice to play or sit, I'd expect you to have my children sitting under a shelter instead of potentially getting ill. If I am paying you to look after my children, I don't expect for things like that to happen.

As you can tell from my username, I am a Safeguarding Officer in the Borough of Wandsworth (working with secondary schools and local youth clubs). If you want me to be blunt, you are breaking A LOT of safeguarding boundaries. You may offer a better price than the "rubbish" rival camp, but I'd rather pay more for quality.

I also think it's best for you to not insult the other camp while trying to advertise yours. Especially if yours has so many flaws that you choose to hide and not mention.

I'll be in touch!

LineBall Tennis is not surprised by this comment: so  pedantic and so no response, exuse me.

In case cyber space has real people with accounts: who is this fake account "WandsSafeguarding" who doesn't declare his / her  name yet declaring her / his interest in "safeguarding"? Eejiot!

I have no idea whether or not the safeguarding account is genuine or not but i am surprised more people didn’t pick you up on your original posts just trying to undermine other providers while at the same time trying to fill empty classes. I think you need to work on your style and focus on your own business.

I am not looking for tennis lessons but if I was your style would certainly put me off.

My niece attended your session for two days a while back and said some things about your session. She enjoyed the tennis session but apparently you tried to get her and others to play in the heavy rain? Isn't that something that can increase a child's risk of illness?

Her friends mentioned that they go to the camp that you refer to as "rubbish". I'm not sure of the people in charge but I've been around the area and if it's who I think it is, it's either the stellar cricket camp or the club which has staff wear bright yellow/green shirts? Either way it seems that they have a lot of fun there playing tennis, football, field hockey and other sports.

I spoke with the parents in the area at the nearby cafe and they mention that the children really enjoy themselves. The price seems to be higher than yours but the parents mention the quality of the camp and the staff they employ.

I'll see if their information is on this site (to any parents who see this, please pass on details if you can!)

PS: I don't think you realise that speaking about other camps when yours isn't the best, acts as a form of promotion for that camp, do you?
