The Control the Controllables podcast was set up during the first COVID-19 lockdown in 2020.
Looking for ways to keep his full-time players energised, Dan Kiernan, Director of SotoTennis Academy in Spain, started hosting Instagram Lives and Zoom interviews with pro players.
The Academy players and parents were receiving such amazing insights from the Pros, Dan decided to bring these chats to a wider audience.
He created the podcast to entertain, educate and energise the tennis community through the difficult periods of lockdowns and quarantines.
Since then the podcast has continued to grow, and in 2021 it won ´Best Tennis Podcast´ at the Sports Podcast Awards!
Our guests have included pro tennis players including world number 1 Iga Swiatek, Holger Rune & Daria Kasatkina, top coaches like Nick Bolletieri and Louis Cayer, parents, commentators and others involved in High Performance Tennis and elite sports.
From Grand Slam Champions to those at grass roots level , from sports journalists to backroom staff, our aim is to truly to get under the bonnet of the sport that we love at all levels.
