S.C.Tennis Doubles School is founded by Sophie Cockell, a LTA Level 4 Performance Coach and coach educator with over 20 years experience.
Sophie has taught in a wide range of settings from clubs to academies teaching both juniors and adults alike in recreational and performance environments. Sophie played to national level as a junior and has continued her love of competing throughout her coaching career representing Essex for many years at Summer County Cup and now at Senior level.
Her love of doubles led her to develop her own doubles methodology which is the basis for S.C.Tennis Doubles School. She delivers her methodology throughout the year at venues in the U.K. and abroad. She has written The Art of Doubles, an eBook that compliments the on court training.
Sophie is an LTA tutor and consultant and has recently written the content for ‘Pair and Play’ – a programme designed to get more women playing tennis. She has written the new Level 2 instructor doubles modules and CPD for the LTA on how to teach recreational doubles to adults. Coaches can gain CPD credits for independent learning at either a workshop or self-reflection of the eBook.
Sophie has a MSc is Sports Psychology which she uses both on and off court with her players. She used her knowledge and experience in this field to write My Tennis Brain – a psychology journal for tennis players to improve the mental side of their game.
