More about Dan

I've been a member of Hoole Tennis Club for almost 10 years, I am a Level 1 tennis coach and have nearly completed my Level 2. I compete regularly and am part of the U18 County Squad. I'm doing my GCSE's and will be going into 6th form in September '23.

I believe that all young people should feel happy and safe whilst playing tennis both in club and during competitions. I want to work with the young people and the Welfare Officer to make it a fun and welcoming place to be where anyone feels that they can approach myself or the Welfare Officer with any worries or concerns.
