About Us


Our academy has been based in Thames Ditton for the past 21 years under the guidance of Cathy and Gordon Birt.



Both Cathy, a former Great Britain player, and Gordon played at Wimbledon and on the International circuit for many years and, after finishing their careers, continued to play a role in the sport  when they established Set Point Tennis Academy.



Both are vastly experienced having coached internationally at the highest level for many years.



Cathy is a fully qualified L.T.A and licensed coach and Gordon, formerly the vice-chairman of the South African Coaching Association, has coached 8 players who were ranked in the top 20 in the world, with 2 of them ranked in the top 4.
