Coaching for All is a family run tennis coaching company which was started by Josh Pistorius as a GCSE leadership project for PE. The coaching proved so successful that he involved his Dad, Warwick to take over the business he started in 2012.
Warwick started coaching Josh as an 11 year old, on courts at a local village, Rudgwick. He coached Josh in all weather and even scraped ice off the courts to train. Josh went on to achieve a top national British ranking, playing for Surrey County and in the British Junior National Championships. He travelled extensively alone from age 16 to international junior tournaments and in 2014 achieved an ITF Junior World Ranking. Following this Josh was awarded a Division 1, four year tennis scholarship to attend the prestigious, private Furman University in South Carolina, USA, where he played and trained at pro level whilst completing a four year degree. During the time at college Josh played professional tennis in between semesters and his hectic university playing schedule. He was awarded a four year playing contract to represent Hildesheim Tennis Club in Hildesheim Germany where he resided our the summer and excelled during this time he competed in ITF Futures events.
From a young age Amy, started assisting in the coaching business and at a young age of 16 completed her LTA level 2 coaching qualification. At this time she developed both as a player and coach and at the age of 18 completed her LTA level 3 qualification and full LTA licence making her, at the time one of the youngest female licensed tennis coaches in the country.
