My introduction to tennis coaching came about whist playing at the Melun Tennis Club in France for the national team. I was approached by one of Paris’s leading coaches, Denis Boudot to further my training and to assist him with all aspects of tennis coaching throughout the summer months


I and 3 friends have had tennis coaching lessons with Gill for around 2 years now, focusing on doubles match play. I have found the lessons with Gill fly past in no time, there is always something to remember whether it’s an adjustment with grip or as a reminder to finish the shot or pointing out flaws in doubles positioning. Although Gill runs the legs off of us he somehow makes it fun and the lesson is different every week and we have all seen an improvement in our match play.



Gill Lemore has headed up our Nike Tennis Camps for the last 8 years. Individual sports need great coaches if young athletes are to achieve significant improvements. With Gill, we have a Tennis Director with boundless energy who inspires, entertains and motivates players and staff alike. More players return on Nike Tennis Camps than we have a right to expect and a lot of that is down to Gill. He is a great role model for young players and for coaches, working to consistently high standards and combining sound technical knowledge with fun and energy to bring out the best in everyone on camp.

There’s never a dull moment on Gill’s tennis trips. A feast of drills, mini tournaments and mix-ins with the locals means we are all kept on our toes while rapidly sharpening our skills. But the main ingredient, which leaves everyone at the end of the day wanting more, is the fun Gill injects into proceedings. You will have as many laughs as cold beers consumed at the end of the day. You will come away a much sharper tennis player, a stone lighter and looking forward to the next one with people who will become firm friends.
