Why did you become a tennis coach?
Ironically I never saw myself as a tennis coach; I always wanted to work in sports development. However when I came back from a 4 year tennis scholarship in America the first thing I did was get my PTR qualification. One of my old coaches called me one day and asked if I would like a job at a local club which I of course said yes to and I have never looked back (I’m now head Coach)!
What do you like the most about being a tennis coach?
The thing I like most about being a tennis coach is getting the opportunity to meet new people. I love listening to people’s stories and learning something new every day!
What is your favourite Grand Slam to watch?
Wimbledon is my favourite grand slam because it is just such a special place. I would love to visit all grand slams at one point!
What are you most looking forward to about being involved in She Rallies?
Being involved in she rallies is such an honour. I feel that being able to encourage females to coach and play tennis will be a fun and rewarding experience. Being involved in such a male dominated job this is such an exciting opportunity.
What is your tennis coaching pet hate?
As a tennis coach my biggest pet hate is when kids don’t pick up the balls – therefore spending hours trying to think of ways to make this fun!
If you could have one superpower what would it be?
My superpower would be to teleport then I could literally go anywhere in the world whenever I wanted (also achieving my goal of the 4 grand slams in 1 year)!
