Coaching Team

At Carrickmines we offer top-class coaching for Juniors and Seniors of all ages and standards.


Our coaches offer a range of top-class coaching for players who have never held a racquet before, to those playing full time and at international level.

For junior and seniors our coaches make learning tennis fun, helping them to improve quickly and motivating them to continue to be active in the club.

Our Director of Tennis, Pat Crowe and his team provide a superb programme of group or individual coaching for junior and senior members. For more details on club coaching see the Carrickmines Tennis Player Pathway
