I'm a DBS checked and insured Lawn Tennis Association Level 3 Coach.
I believe playing tennis is for everybody.
Eight years ago I decided to leave the office and work encouraging others to play, teaching and coaching everyone, from 3 year-olds to 70-somethings; from absolute beginners to club-level players.
I'm proud to be part of the Hackney Tennis team, the only UK park-based centre that achieved LTA Performance backing, something that gives more children access to the level of coaching that turns potential into national players.
I run corporate sessions and group lessons for all abilities. I encourage managers to get their teams onto tennis courts, to socialise in a healthy environment, learning without noticing it, and turning colleagues into friends through playing.
Now that remote working has arrived to stay, it's even more important for teams to find ways away from Zoom and Slack, to get together outdoors, have a laugh, build camaraderie and community at work.
