I am writing to wholeheartedly recommend Laura Jackson for any future endeavour in the field of coaching or sports instruction. During our time together as colleagues at KenWood KenMont camps from 2018 to 2023, I had the honour of witnessing Laura’s remarkable dedication and steadfast commitment to the campers, all while overseeing an impressive array of 16 tennis courts. Her vibrant personality and unwavering dedication made tennis a focal point of the camp experience. Under her leadership, tennis was not just a sport; it became a passion for our campers. Her exceptional leadership skills left a profoundly positive impact on both the campers she coached and the counselors she supervised. What truly sets Laura apart is her ability to connect with each camper individually. Despite the diverse range of ages and skill levels among our campers, Laura made it a priority to understand and cater to the unique needs and aspirations of every child. She consistently challenged campers to push their limits, setting the bar high while providing the guidance and support necessary for success. This approach not only led to significant improvements in our campers' tennis abilities but also instilled in them a strong work ethic and self-belief that transcended the tennis court. In her role as a supervisor to the counselors, Laura exhibited strong leadership skills. She provided guidance, support and constructive feedback to counselors, empowering them to become effective tennis instructors in their own right. Laura ensured that the tennis program ran smoothly, and consistently went above and beyond to organize events, tournaments, and activities that brought campers together, creating a sense of camaraderie that extended beyond the summer months. She meticulously planned and executed tennis drills that were not only engaging but also highly educational. In summary, Laura is a true gem in the world of tennis coaching and sports instruction. Her flexibility, energy, thoroughness, and ability to connect with campers individually make an invaluable asset to any organization. I have no doubt that Laura will continue to make a significant impact in the field of tennis coaching, inspiring and shaping the lives of countless young athletes. Please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any further information or have specific questions about Laura’s qualifications and performance. Again, I am happy to recommend Laura Jackson and am confident that she will excel in any future endeavour. Sincerely, Lynne Pizzulli

Laura is a fantastic tennis coach; she’s energetic, engaging, enthusiastic and fun. She’s coached my children for around 3 years on a 1:1 basis, as well as coaching in group holiday camps and after school group coaching. She’s so patient and encouraging with the children and has a really positive and sunny disposition, it’s impossible not to warm to her. I would say she has maturity beyond her years, often coaching larger groups of children, maintaining control and making sure they’re all behaving whilst having fun. I always know that my children are in safe hands with Laura, I trust her completely and it’s incredible how much my kids have developed and improved in terms of their tennis skills since Laura has been coaching them. She’s an incredibly talented tennis player and is great at sharing that talent, watching carefully and coaching others to improve their game.
