about us

Independent Tennis was founded and is managed by Monica Becerra, a highly experienced tennis coach and player specialising in Junior Player Development. She loves tennis and wants as many children as possible to play and discover for themselves the many benefits of the sport. That’s what the Independent Tennis programme is for.

How is the Programme Run?

Monica leads a great team of like-minded tennis professionals: coaches and assistants who specialise in junior tennis development. Together they deliver the programme. They have enormous expertise, experience and enthusiasm. No child could wish to work with better coaches. They know the game inside out and how to teach youngsters. With their help, countless young tennis players have been transformed.

Monica Becerra
Founder & Organiser

I have been involved in tennis for over 25 years, coaching in park development programmes, commercial tennis clubs, high performance and International High Performance Centres (IHPCs).
I aim to make daily self improvements and in so doing help those around me to improve. On my journey I have played a role in helping players achieve their goals, ranging from winning national titles to low-key local team events. I have run programmes for players just starting tennis through to training high performance athletes. I am also Middlesex Girls Under 10 & Under 12 Team Captain.

On a personal level I love tennis and compete regularly. I have represented England, Middlesex and Surrey. Recently I was a finalist in the National Veterans event for my age group.

Independent Tennis is a way for me to share my passion for tennis and increase the opportunities for new players to play this great sport. I love to see players improve. Seeing the pleasure that tennis can bring, and being a part of it, is very satisfying. Right now, I’m really enjoying the challenge of bringing more players into the game through Independent Tennis.
