About The Excel Tennis Academy



The man behind the EXCEL TENNIS ACADEMY is Edward Large, himself a tennis coach with over 18 years experience.


Edward created the Excel Tennis Academy to provide opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds a chance to get involved and learn to play tennis. The Academy works closely with Clubs, Community Facilities and schools to provide high quality and accessible tennis lessons.

The EXCEL TENNIS ACADEMY aims to make tennis accessible for all. Whatever your age, ability or background, we believe you should be given the opportunity to fulfil your potential in an enjoyable manner. Whether you’re in line for a Wimbledon title, a talented county player, or just want to play for fun – our objectives remain the same for everyone.

Our coaching programmes are tailored for all standards and ages and allow players to develop at their own pace in a comfortable and enjoyable atmosphere. Whether you are playing for fun, looking to develop new skills, meet new people or become the next Andy Murray we have a session to help.

The EXCEL TENNIS ACADEMY is so much more than just hitting balls. We create an environment where pupils not only learn how to play the game and improve, but benefit from increased confidence, social skills, fitness and learn more about team work.


Co-ordinated by our experienced team of LTA qualified and licensed coaches; we offer very high quality tuition, giving everyone  the best chance to learn and develop. We are very passionate about tennis and work closely with the clubs to create more opportunities for people to play regardless of age, ability, or background. Our main goal is to get as many people playing and sharing our enthusiasm for the game of tennis as possible.

They have been interesting, enjoyable and testing

My two sons have been playing tennis now for 7 years and this has been down to the enthusiasm and quality of Ed Large's sessions.From the very first visit they have been interesting, enjoyable and testing, making player development very successfull. My boys Elliott and Finlay have both represented club and county teams, but Ed is enthusiastic with both experienced and new players and consider him to be one of the best coaches around.
