Head of Tennis
I am a successful and enthusiastic tennis coach and Director of Racquet Sports. I have been coaching for the past 19 years. In the UK, I developed both a mini tennis academy (HOT SHOTS) and a High-Performance academy. In Australia at Knox Grammar School and Cranbrook School I have implemented a Hot Shots program at the Junior School. At the Senior School, I have implemented both a Senior program along with a High-Performance program. I have been instrumental in the success of many national players in the UK and Australia.
I am hard working and have a love and passion for the game of tennis. I really enjoy coaching and love the challenge of teaching all different age groups and abilities. I am reliable, organised and very punctual and feel lucky enough that I am a role model to the boys I coach. I have a good rapport with all and believe that everyone should have a chance to play the game of tennis, but most importantly, enjoy it!
