Erika Campbell - Tennis player

About

I grew up in Wimbledon, South West London, but have also lived in Switzerland and France. I first picked up a racket at the age of 5, however, only really begun my competitive tennis journey at the age of 7. Since then, I have trained and competed all around the world with all different types of players, which has exposed me to different types and approaches to tennis.

I started online school in my second year of high school in order to give myself more flexibility with my studies alongside my tennis. More recently, I have begun studying Psychology at the University of Stirling where I am a tennis scholar. I regularly compete in the BUCS league matches (British Universities and College Sport) where we are competing in the top league in the country. Alongside this, I also compete in British Tour and ITF competitions. Outside of tennis I enjoy travelling, eating, and watching loads of Netflix.

Thanks to tennis, I have learnt many great attributes that have made me into the person I am today. These attributes include determination, perseverance and self discipline. Tennis has also allowed me to make lifelong friends, gain some amazing life experiences and learn some important life lessons. It has been a big part of my life for a very long time and I hope to play for as long as possible.

Aims & Goals

For the next year, my goal is to become a top 50 player in Britain and to gain my first WTA points.

In the next 18-24 months, my goal is to become a professional player and to frequent on the WTA tour.

My ultimate goal in tennis is become the best tennis player that I can be. I believe that this means to consistently be a part of the world’s top 50 players and compete in all four Grand Slams.

Testimonials

Craig Webster/ Professional Coach

Erika is a super Athlete and an outstanding Tennis player who will be an asset on anyone Team. Her Technical game is extremely sound and she has super quick movement on court. Unfortunately, Erika like most people world wide have been affected by COVID 19 from the point of view that she has not had the opportunity to compete and play many tournaments. Late last year Erika spent 5 months in France where she had intensive daily training personal coaching and played a number of regional tournaments. My involvement with Erika was online as I am based in South Africa and Erika is in the UK however this did not prevent her from creating a daily Journal on her Fitness training and we work extremely hard on her Visualization techniques Concentration methods Tactical Point play and strategy. Erika also sent me regular Video clips of her stroke production where we analyses these and critiqued them whereby, we tweaked all her shots. Erika is an extremely hard-working dedicated Athlete and is also extremely focused when it comes to achieving a goal. I am completely convinced Erika will thrive on the tour. Craig Webster
