Coaching Staff

"I've been coaching tennis for over 25 years, in the UK, Australia, Greece and Italy, I've worked in different tennis environments with a range of coaches and players, which has helped me gain experience and establish my coaching philosophy. 

I have coached and captained junior County Cup teams, men's and ladies club teams and organise the annual International Cup team competition, which is played in both the UK and Italy.

I started in 2019/20 working with the teams at Birmingham University, which has been one of my most enjoyable coaching experiences. There's a great atmosphere created by the players, who are all supportive of each other. I think there's a really good balance at training; players work hard whilst enjoying themselves.

I'm looking forward to this coming season, helping, challenging and developing our players!"
