Alex Harvey Tennis professional

 Barn Elms Sports Centre - Barnes     

"Alex has coached my son Toran Tserkezis, since the age of 7 years old. Under his training, Toran has won a number of Grade 3, 4 and 5 9U tournaments, and he recently won the 9U Surrey Country Championships in August 2019. 

"Alex is an amazing coach who understands our son. He is brilliant in concentrating on the intricate technical details, which most coaches can miss. He also concentrates on developing their mental strength in competitions, and in general. We strongly recommend Alex as a tennis coach and generally as an all-round coach of fantastic benefit." - Thanos, father of Toran.


"It has been a process that our entire family cherish for life, as Alex managed to install in my son not only the tennis foundation skills needed, but the confidence that a tennis player needs in order to believe in himself to progress. He started to compete in orange ball competitions and after 9 competitions he attended he managed to be in 3 finals and win a tournament! 

"We decided to take him to the best tennis Academy in the world - which is Nick Bollettieri at IMG, in order to have their coaches assess what level our son is at 9.5 years. That was entirely due to a very intensive training programme with Alex. Their report was very good, and our son was praised mostly for his technical skills and correct technique used on the main shots. 

"Next year, we spent a week at Rafa Nadal’s Academy, which he truly enjoyed it and cemented our belief that he will need to take his tennis further. Having been to both of these World class facilities we strongly believe Alex has technically been the best coach we have ever come across. 

"Since then, my son has attended an assessment camp this summer at the David Ferrer Tennis Academy in Alicante, and has been deemed suitable to enrol in a full time pro-programme combined with a school programme in a private British School, which has worked with David’s Team in creating a special academic programme for young athletes. He is the youngest full time athlete in the David Ferrer Academy, starting this autumn at 11 years 11 months old. The rest are 13 and above." - Rodica, Mother of Philip. 

"Alex first worked with The Harrodian whilst we were visiting the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy in Portugal. It was evident that he was very professional, and was able to build up a rapor very quickly with all the pupils. His coaching style was engaging and challenging to the pupils, providing them clear areas to work on but in an approachable and supportive way. The coach/player relationship is vital if progress is to be made in adjustments to technique, and Alex was able to adjust his style to each of the 4 groups he worked with. 

"On the back of this, the school then employed him to work with our 6th formers who were not in the tennis team on a Wednesday afternoon. Here he made considerable progress with a group of pupils who previously liked the idea of playing tennis, but did not have the technique or desire to really work at it. 

"Alex is a professional, organised and inspiring coach who will definitely make a difference to your game whatever your level.” - Tim, Head of Tennis, Head of Senior Sport Harrodian School
