What the players say:

"Emma is a very knowledgeable and approachable person. She has been coaching me for a little over 6 months now and I'm starting to see differences in how I think and play the game. I will continue to work with Emma and highly recommend her to anyone already playing the game that's looking to improve."


- Phil H.

"Emma has helped me with all aspects related to table tennis. She gets me to think strategically rather than just focus on my technique and this has brought my game on no end. She has also been able to advise me on specific ways to improve my fitness and explained how this will benefit my game.


- Sue C.

"My son has really improved since working with Emma. She motivates him to achieve the best he can be but also makes each session fun and enjoyable.


- Mrs T.
