I am a passionate and highly motivated individual, who is committed to promoting the game to as many people as possible. I want to inspire and improve each player to reach his or her full potential and create a lifelong love for the sport. I not only bring this work ethic to the court but also with all my off-court activities, ensuring a personable service to all clients.
I joined Stonards Hill Tennis Courts in 2020 after previous positions at Epping Tennis Club, Connaught Club & Thorpe Bay LTC & successful school outreach programmes in both Essex and at the All England Tennis Club in Wimbledon.
Currently an LTA Level Four Senior Club Club Coach.
I also have extensive player training including:
- Weil Tennis Academy, Ojai, California, 2007/8; Winner Open Under 16 (previous winners include Pete Sampras and John McEnroe); Sanchez Cassal Academy, Barcelona , Spain 2006
- ITF Junior Quarter Finalist Hawaii 2008; Quarter Finalist Bermuda 2008; “Road to Wimbledon” national competition Finalist 2005; - Third in Sunday Telegraph Junior Grand Prix national Finals, La Manga, 2005. - Essex Captain under 16 and under 18; Essex number one Junior player , under 12 and 14 and under 16; Top Ten UK Junior under 14; Winner Essex Closed ages 12 and 14
My motto is "All or nothing". In other words, you give it everything you have or don't bother. My attitude to competition is both physical and mental- you can't control whether you win or lose but you can control how much effort you give.
