I have been a full time tennis coach since 1986 and Head Coach at Hale L.T.C. for nearly all of this period.

Throughout my career I have prided myself on undertaking a full and comprehensive coach education programme which naturally included passing all the available coaching qualifications.

I pride myself on being an extremely versatile coach able to reach out to all ages and abilities ranging from being North West Regional Coach to coaching Mini Red Development.

Recognition of this diverse expertise has lead me to be invited on 4 occasions to present at The Annual British Tennis Coaches Association Conference. In addition the 2012 Tennis Coach UK Road Show “Coaching From Simple to Sophisticated” was delivered throughout the country by myself and subsequently made into a DVD.

I take huge pleasure in contributing to all the various sections at Hale L.T.C. from Team / Performance Players to Beginners, from the 8 & Under's to the Supa Vets. My underlying vision for the club is to create the best possible club environment so that we remain successful across the whole membership spectrum.
