David was born and educated in Hertfordshire, before emigrating to the USA where he played team tennis and completed his graduation.

On his return to the UK, David settled in Bolton with his wife and 5 children (yes, that’s right, five children! Further proof that tennis is a healthy activity!!) Of his four sons and one daughter, the eldest has moved back to Hertfordshire, the second eldest emigrated to Australia three years ago.  The love for tennis clearly has had an impact as two of his sons are now coaching themsleves.

David was the coach at Hatfield Tennis Club, Hertfordshire in the late 70’s and early 80’s, then ran and owned a non-tennis-related business until 2003, before re-qualifying as an LTA accredited coach. David regularly attends courses with the LTA to keep up to date with the very latest coaching methods.

During his time as a tennis coach, David has enjoyed working with a wide variety of players, from complete beginners, through to county and internationally ranked players. As head of the coaching programme at Leyland Tennis Club, David welcomes enquiries and encourages new players to visit us and enjoy a FREE taster session.

Tennis philosophy:
