Club Coach

I have been coaching full time for 22 years, during which time I have been able to develop my coaching skills to cover a wide range of abilities and ages. I am currently the head coach at Westonbirt Senior Girls school, Westonbirt Prep School.

During the last 22 years I have had 9 individual age group winners of the county championships, 3 players who have made the main draw singles of the national championships and 1 player make the semi-finals of National U/14 singles and win a European U/14 tournament. All of these players I have coached from complete beginners. I have had 3 players play at Wimbledon in the ‘ Road to Wimbledon’ finals. In 2005 I also coached the winner of the Fred Perry U/10.

As a junior player, I represented Lancashire and the North West of England. I grew up playing for Holcombe Brook in Lancashire before joining the R.A.F. In 1994 I was the R.A.F. tennis champion, which was played at Wimbledon. I had my highest rating of 2.2. I still play competitively for several clubs and in 2011 I was captain of Bridgwater LTC over-35 team which reached the semi-finals of the British championships. Currently I Play for Gloucestershire over 45 men’s team.
