About First4Tennis

First4Tennis guarantee top quality coaches and personalities whether they are hosting sporting legends events, running academy training, or coaching beginners. All our lead coaches will be experienced in high profile overseas locations though we often recruit hand-picked local experts to assist and invite groups of local players to mix into competitive and social activities to add to the experience of F4T guests.

Add to this the experienced management of the F4T team, managed by Richard Walmsley who has held leading roles in British and International Tennis, with coaching personally overseen by Rupert North who has over 25 years’ experience of running successful overseas tennis academies and training coaches for the vip market. You will find that everything is catered for, including state of the art technical analysis and where possible holding indoor courts on continual standby should the normally sunny weather of our hand picked tennis destinations surprise us with a shower!

Our Coaches and Personalities

Through several exclusive arrangements First4Tennis are able to offer tennis trips to the best destinations, many iconic, and we offer opportunities to be coached by ex Wimbledon players including more than one ex Champion! Wimbledon Champion Goran Ivanisevic stayed around to socialise (and share his birthday celebration) after one recent F4T academy. Indian legend Vijay Amritraj is our Grand Slam ambassador, and recently former British No 1 and BBC commentator Andrew Castle joined us in Mauritius for our Private Travel Company week. The social element is a big part of the First4Tennis philosophy.




Rupert and Richard teamed up within First4Tennis in 2014 to use their knowledge and connections to deliver the most special bespoke tennis experiences in the world to players of all standards.
