Married with two children, I live in West Wiltshire. I have been coaching tennis for over 25 years, having been given a tennis racket for my birthday at the age of seven. My coaching career began as a volunteer at my local club, I then went on to attain LTA qualifications, USA qualifications and Spanish qualifications.
I have developed and implemented coaching programmes at several tennis clubs in Somerset and Wiltshire. For the previous nine years I was the assistant Head Coach at Chippenham Tennis Club. While there, I assisted in the development of a mini tennis programme, worked with the 14 & under County Girls squad, County 8 & under Boys squads, as well as beginner/improver groups for children and adults. I have several years' experience delivering disability tennis: blind tennis and learning disability tennis. I am also a tennis referee and run LTA-sanctioned tournaments.
