April 2018: Kianna Leaton-Smith
Kianna has been learning tennis with us for 10 months and has improved immensely in that time. Kianna attends our Mini Red Lessons and joined along with her father and sister after our open day in July 2017.
She can be very anxious about not being able to do a particular skill or shot but has learnt to stop herself from using the phrase "I can't..." and this has developed her skills and shot technique so much. Her forehand and backhand have become very consistent and we are working to improve her serving and rallying skills.
More than anything Kianna's enjoyment for the sport is great to see for someone at that stage. All of the coaches hope that this continues as she has great potential to become a fantastic tennis player as she becomes older.
