What sort of coach are you?
A very experienced, knowledgeable and passionate coach with 20 + years of coaching experience, who loves working with kids of all ages on their sporting journey.
Why do you coach?
I coach because I love it! I love seeing kids learn a new sport and skills for the first time. I also love watching them develop and improve over the weeks, months and years too. I love the bonds you form with your students and families, and knowing that for a short time you helped them to add a string to their sporting journey bow.
Most memorable moment/s from your coaching so far
I love the rewards that we have been lucky enough to experience at the Hopman Cup/ Fed Cup/ ATP Cup… seeing the kid’s faces light up when they enter the main stadium and get to play on the court or toss a coin for one of their heroes. That’s the stuff they’ll remember forever, and me too!
Favourite tennis player/s?
Steffi Graf as a kid but now Serena Williams and Rafa.
