In this week's episode, we dive into a topic that will greatly benefit both tennis parents and coaches.

I had the privilege of speaking with Garry Cahill, the Founder of Prodigy Tennis and a former captain of the Irish Davis Cup and Billie Jean King Cup teams. You might remember Garry from our previous podcast episodes (Ep. 10 & Ep. 103), where he shared his coaching journey and insights into establishing his successful academy.

In today's episode, we delve into Garry's recent research collaboration with a prominent Irish University, focusing on the experiences of tennis parents throughout their journey. 

In our chat, we cover ⬇️

  • The pivotal role of each parent
  • Navigating challenging decisions at critical junctures
  • Factors that influence decision-making
  • Challenges working with multiple coaches
  • Selecting the right academy
  • Key takeaways and lessons learned from his ongoing research

Hope you enjoy it
