Mark Finlan has been with us since 1997 and is qualified to the LTA Club Coach Award (CCA) Level [4], Mark has coached many of our current members at some point and has always been the life and soul of the club. We have a number of current members who were coached by Mark as Juniors during the 90's and early 2000's who are still with us as adult players!

Candy Reid-Harrop has been coaching internationally and domestically for over 15 years. Having held a World Ranking in both Singles and Doubles, and working for CNN as a sports presenter and reporter, she ran a tennis academy in the United States for top junior prospects.
