Message from Stephen – Head Coach


Stephen receiving the Meme Griffiths Award in 2019

Chalfont St. Peter Tennis Clubs coaching programme caters for the needs and demands of the local community. We want people to feel part of the CSPTC family. This is the reason the coaching team consists of members of CSPTC. Our team feel a sense of belonging and unity. This shows in the coaching we deliver to members of the club. Our satisfaction rates amongst players receiving coaching are high. Stephen has  been managing the coaching programme during this very difficult and challenging global pandemic and ever changing guidelines. Coaching is available to all levels of players from children to adults who are beginners or advanced team players. We offer group and private lessons. For further info. please look at the coaching timetable on the website. The Government are calling the 16-24 year olds ‘the lost generation’ as they are the age group finding it difficult to find jobs at the moment. You will notice that we are helping with this and have a few younger coaches who are amazing with coaching the younger child members at the club. 

I look forward to seeing you on court soon.

Coaches at Chalfont St Peter

Stephen Wright – Head Coach

Head Coach, Stephen Wright has been coaching at Chalfont St. Peter Tennis Club since November, 2015. During this 4 year period the clubs membership figure has doubled. The junior membership and coaching programme is thriving and the adult membership and coaching programme is very popular too. We run a comprehensive adult coaching programme for all standards from beginners to advanced players both individually and in groups.
Stephen started playing on the ITF Seniors Tour in 2019 and is now world ranked in singles and in doubles. His philosophy is that of competition and he feels that all players from 5 years old to 90+ years old should engage in formal or informal competitions. Competing focuses the mind and helps you identify which areas of your game are working well and which areas need improvement.
In 2018 Stephen was awarded the Meme Griffiths Award by the Bucks LTA for his outstanding contribution to tennis in Buckinghamshire. Stephen enjoys coaching adults of all standards as well as juniors of all standards. Stephen has coached players from beginner through to County players at Chalfont St. Peter Tennis Club. The clubs overall membership numbers are continually increasing and so are the standard of players at the club. Stephen has strong links with the local community including links with the viilage schools, scout/cub groups, the community centre and many local business.
