Originally from Melbourne, Australia. I am a keen tennis player and now qualified coach. Formerly a full-time tennis player at an Academy run by former touring professional player (current 55 years and over world champ) and coach Glen Busby.
I believe tennis is a great mix of physical and mental ability that can be played by people of all levels. It's a game I've been drawn back to over the last couple of years for it's combination of movement, skill and strategy.
I have been coaching at Queens Park since 2012. I enjoy working with all ages and abilities in Queen's Park's varied programme which includes tots and mini tennis, cardio tennis, tennis Xpress and the adult group coaching sessions. I've also had the honour of captaining the three junior teams - U9, U12 and U16. I like to play whenever possible, both doubles and singles, and compete regularly in tournaments and the West of Scotland leagues.
I have been playing tennis for 25 years and compete regularly in the West of Scotland leagues and national tournaments . I have an LTA Level 3 qualification and have been coaching for over 12 years in many different clubs. I have also spent 4 summers in one of Americas leading tennis camps in which I was lucky enough to work with world class coaches and teach some of Americas up and coming players.
Hello, Been a coach at Queens Park since October 2015 assisting in delivering the junior programme and this year will also be delivering adult tennis. Since the age of 16 I have had a strong interest in coaching which led me to completing a 2.1 BA (Hons) degree in Sports Coaching. Currently a Level 2 coach with additional qualifications including Cardio Tennis, First Aid, Organising Tournaments and School Tennis.
I have been coaching at Queen’s Park Community Tennis Club since 2014 where I deliver the Cardio Tennis sessions every Monday evening.
