Paul Barton (Director of Coaching) LTA Level 4 – Accredited + Coach and YMCA Qualified Fitness Trainer

As a junior I was a regularly club champion at one of Hertfordshire’s top tennis performance clubs, and even represented the Men’s 1st team at 15 years of age. My tennis coaching career started in 1990 in Sydney, Australia, soon after attaining my first LTA qualification. I worked at one of Sydney’s largest tennis centres, which was a great first assignment, I learned a lot from the team there and had a lot of fun along the way.

On returning to the UK, I started tennis coaching for Merton and Wandsworth councils, running many of their tennis courses for both juniors and adults. Also at that time I worked at David Lloyd’s flag ship club in Raynes Park, as assistant to the Junior Coordinator. We ran a huge program for children, of all ages with approx. 800 children per week, again a great experience and lots learned.

I then obtained a licence to coach at Wimbledon Park, and I decided to set up my own tennis coaching business, teaching players of all levels and ages. I have enjoyed the challenge setting up Tennis4you and we teach hundreds of children and adults each year. I thoroughly enjoy what I do and never seem to tire of this job that I love. I am also so grateful to all my great clients and it has been awesome meeting you all!

Over the years I have worked with several professional players, and worked with some big corporations to provide tennis events for them at some very prestigious locations.

I now also run my own Tennis Holiday business, called Tennis Breaks. I have built this over the years, alongside Tennis4you. We offer tennis holidays to adults groups to the best locations in Europe.

This business is growing rapidly and again has allowed me to meet a lovely bunch of people!

Tennis coaching in Wimbledon Park - Dr. John Murray

Dr John F Murray (Sports Psychologist)

John is available to work with all players, contact Paul if you would like to be put in touch with John and get receive the preferential rates that he has negotiated.

Dr. Murray is a rare expert in performance psychology and has been called “the most quoted sports psychologist” in sport media over the past 20 years.

He authored the sports psychology book  Smart Tennis: How to Play and Win the Mental GameSmart Tennis: How to Play and Win the Mental Game (Jossey-Bass/John Wiley & Sons) in 1999 and it is still selling well. He also wrote the book “The Mental Performance Index” for American football in 2011 and revised it in 2013.  The Mental Performance Index is also a successful football performance rating system, adding precision and standardization to team performance analysis and a mental component rarely examined in sports. Known as the “MPI” this system was recently converted into a highly successful prediction algorithm, adding empirical evidence to the vast importance of mental training and sports psychology. See more about the MPI toward the end of this page.

A tennis professional in his youth, Tennis Week Magazine called Dr. Murray “The Roger Federer of Sports Psychologists” and The Washington Post dubbed him “The Freud of Football” for his sports psychology work in NFL football and in using the MPI.  Dr. John F Murray’s passion is always to help his clients achieve greater success and well-being. This may involve more traditional psychotherapy from a number of theoretical perspectives, more specific mental coaching for sports performance, or a mixture of the two. Read through this website to learn how Dr Murray can help you with performance psychology or psychological counselling in business, sports, or life.
