In this episode you will hear from the one and only Garry Cahill.
Gary was the performance director and national academy coach for Tennis Ireland for 14 years. 4 of those years he was Davis Cup Captain for Ireland. He has worked with players who have played the main draw of grand slams at senior and junior level. He has a wealth of experience in player development.
He is the founder of an exciting new company called Prodigy Tennis. He has assembled a fantastic team of coaches and, has most recently, done what very few people in tennis manage to achieve…… he has built his own indoor tennis courts out of a school sports hall. Better still, he did this with the help of the parents of players he coaches and halved the total build cost.
You will hear many great opinions and insights to the performance world along with brilliant tips on how to coach players within match play.
It was a real pleasure talking with Garry and it could have easily gone on for hours on end.
Have a listen and share it with your sporty friends and parents of sporty kids.

I enjoyed hearing a couple familiar if not a bit funny voices. Glad to hear you are both doing so well. Keep it up.
Kris Soutar says
Haha, glad you listened in Larry. You were mentioned on another podcast I did with Functional Tennis. Hope you and the family are well
Huge sense being spoken here. Garry Cahill’s message needs ramming home right across these islands. I hope his Prodigy high performance project really takes off; I’d have my child signed up in a heartbeat. It would be great too, to have Judy Murray and other notable coaches giving their views on the evolution from junior player development into high performance.
Liam Nolan says
Always soul refreshing to listen to someone who has a real passion, understanding and direction. Through the world of racket servicing I have worked for many Irish tennis and squash players. I formed the UK Racket Stringers Association back in 2002 and listening to Gary reminds me of all the knocks and successes along the way to where we are now.
If the UKRSA can be of any help to Gary, then we will be happy to chat. We have run many courses in Ireland, from Cobh up to Dublinwhich is where I was born.
Good luck Gary, Liam
