ABOUT ME

• • •

Ambidextrous tennis player (due to tennis elbow) with 2 forehands and serving both hands who would love to teach this skill as it has improved my game enormously and I firmly believe it could be the next big thing in tennis

Working in Information Technology by day and playing sport at any other opportunity.

I love competition with a background in football, cricket, tennis and table tennis through to being a single figure golfer

WHAT I TEACH MOST

• • •

I like to teach an aggressive game of tennis with big serving, hard hitting and net play for shorter points as I am a firm believer that tennis isn’t about waiting at the baseline for the opposition to make mistakes but an exciting game where you make your own luck

I AM PROUD OF

• • •

It took me 3 years of trial and error on a ball machine to become ambidextrous but now believe I could teach it in one year

INTERESTING FACT ABOUT ME

• • •

Being involved in tennis again after giving up the game for 20 years to pursue other sporting interests
