We welcome our new Head Coach Ben Obong to Aughton Lawn Tennis Club and look forward to  working with him in further developing our adult and junior and mini tennis programmes.   He has already had the opportunity to  meet many members of the club at our Quasquicentennial season opener ‘Bubbles & Bits’ on Sunday 23rd April 2017.  

Ben 1              Season Opener


Ben was previously Head of Mini Tennis at the Northern Lawn Tennis Club, Manchester and  prior to that Junior Tennis and Swimming Coordinator at David Lloyd Knowsley.   Ben has been coaching for over 23 years to all ages and abilities. He is a Level 3 L.T.A Qualified Coach and about to obtain Level 4 by the end of May 2017.  His coaching skills are ‘broad’ and can adapt to all Adults/Juniors who are present in classes or in 1-2-1 sessions.

His aim is to make sure that he delivers fun, challenging sessions to all and that all who attend lessons feel they are on course to achieve their goals whatever they may be.  Ben is also a level 3 PT Instructor, so is also qualified to deliver Personal Training to those who may like to link other parts of fitness to their tennis.

In his spare time he loves to play golf and in the past played Semi-Professional football at Southport Football Club, under the managerial expertise of Mark Wright (Former England and Liverpool Captain).

His contact details are:

For those members of ALTC who are interested he will offer a 30min Free Introductory Session (Subject to availability), so please feel free to take him up on this offer. The programmes @ ALTC will be planned and advertised by email, on the website and on the coaching board.
