Tom and I started discussing tennis coaching methods about 3 years ago. He understands the skills that are required to play this game and how to effectively teach them. It's a refreshing change from basket feeding and generic technical jargon. I would really encourage any parent, player or coach to contact Tom to see how he can help you. You will definitely learn many things that are not easily available or often discussed. I will continue to reach out to Tom as I improve my coaching and the coaching of others around me.Rob Isaacs, Director of competitive tennis at HPTA, Philadelphia
Tom is truly a professional tennis coach. 'Professional' implies dedication, efficiency, creativity, and a genuine relationship with their profession. Tom is not a replacement 'ball feeding machine with a voice'. He is an accomplished student of the game, continually investigating methods of how to help others learn, ever more quickly to become a genuine game playing tennis player. Tom cares about his players and the game. He is the real deal and the best value coach in town.Keith Reynolds, ATP Tour Coach and author of "The Tennis Coach's Toolkit"
Sometimes as coaches we can get caught up in only addressing stroke production. Tom not only looks at the big picture, his teaching philosophy outlines how one thing influences another. It's like a jigsaw puzzle where all the pieces fit perfectly. It makes it easy for the coach, and easy for the student to understand how to become better. I would strongly suggest that anyone that wants to improve as a coach contact Tom Allsopp.John Carrizosa, PVTC Pro and Director of Junior Development
"Become a better player,
not just ball hitter"
With 17 years of experience as a tennis coach, I specialize in development and synchronization of mental and physical skills in tennis players of all levels, helping my students develop mentality, movement, technique and tactics appropriate for each shot and situation. Regardless of a player’s age or ability, I believe that rallying, not basket feeding, should be central to tennis coaching, as it is the only way to show students how to adapt to balls of different heights, spins, speeds, and angles.
For all players I coach, I focus on providing contextual advice that is appropriate for the task at hand and their current skill level. My ultimate goal is to give them something that results in an “aha” moment - a moment of clarity, where a player gains true understanding of what he or she needs to do going forward. Helping my students to achieve something that they can see, feel, and understand, allows me to involve them in their own development, which gives them the key to their own success.
