Welcome to Courtside

My name is Andy and more often than not I'm to be found courtside watching my son Elijah playing the sport he loves; tennis. It's this weekly pilgrimage, coffee in hand, which led me to create the Courtside Podcast.

Courtside is a series of conversations exploring the journey sport-parents go on as we support our children in the sport they love.

Through Courtside you’ll hear from Players, Parents, Coaches and experts in the fields of sports science and adolescent development in order that as Courtside Parents we can create a positive courtside environment, meaning that our children flourish through the culture we create around the sport that they love.

So, how's your courtside culture?

Cici, Paige and Tabatso are 3 exceptional young tennis players whose passion and dedication to their sport, led them to leave family and friends at home and become fulltime players at Barcelona Tennis Academy 

This is the first of what we hope will be many podcasts hearing from young players talking about their sport and the benefits it brings to their lives. 

  • What is the added value that sport brings?
  • How has sport developed on and off the court?
  • Why would they recommend all young people take up a sport?
  • What's been the Good, Bad and Ugly they've observed as Courtside behaviour?
  • How has parental support helped them?

This is a must listen to laughter-filled Podcast for all Courtside Parents and Coaches, as we seek the very best for our children and athletes. 

Please don't forget to spread the word about Courtside with a comment or a recommendation!!

All the best
