Meet the coaching team

We work with a field of coaches across both Tennis & Football coaching.
Read more about them below.

Hamid Hejazi

Hamid has worked with players of all ages and abilities including several who have competed on the world stage and at Wimbledon under his tuition.

A late comer to the sport Hamid played football to a national level up to the age of 12 and only picked up tennis as a teenager. By 18 he was ranked inside the top 10 in the UK and the worlds top 300.

He left school at 15 pursuing a career as a professional player competing around the world but soon realised just how good you need to be to reach the very top of the game and decided the next best thig was coaching. At 20 he had his first job and has gone on to coach over 15 internationally ranked boys, girls, men and women all of whom have been some of the best in the country for their respective age groups.

Now the director of Over&In he is very passionate about passing on his knowledge to any one who wants to learn the sport he loves and hopes he can have a positive impact on the number of people who play the game!

Matthew Sanders

Our “Head of coaching”, Matt is one of those coaches who delivers.

He isn’t as vocal or lively as some but his knowledge and understanding of teaching tennis is second to none and this is highlighted non more so than in the big improvements so many of his pupils make.

With a 2:1 degree from Durham and a wealth of sporting achievements Matt has all the attributes to become a very successful tennis coach in the future

Oliver Halliwell

Ollie has a great work ethic, is liked by everyone and for someone in his early 20’s coaches like a veteran. He started with us as an assistant coach back in 2010 and hasn’t looked back.

Ollie knew from an early age that teaching was his passion and rather than go to uni he decided tennis was the career for him. With all of his qualities there will be many opportunities for Ollie but we hope that he will continue to be an Over & In coach for many years to come.
