I started playing tennis at the age of eleven at Newport Pagnell Tennis Club of all places. I joined the club two weeks after starting to play tennis and entered the mini tennis tournament which I won. This made me determined to continue playing tennis, where I not only represented Newport Pagnell Tennis Club in junior matches, I also had individual coaching lessons to help me progress.

At the age of thirteen I progressed to the adult teams at Newport Pagnell. At this time I became part of a team of four boy players, which entered the Junior Club Nationals, where we progressed to the final, playing at Bisham Abbey. During this period I achieved the adults men’s singles & doubles at Milton Keynes tennis club aged fifteen, this made me the youngest ever winner at the club at that time.

I have a wide experience of playing on the LTA Tour singles and doubles. Winning LTA events all around the country and achieving a LTA rating 3.1. I competed across all age groups with great success.

I regularly competed at County level & I was a member of the County training squads. My claim to fame is I competed & successfully beat Jamie Murray 6-1 6-1 in a LTA event. Out of interest my fastest recorded serve is 127mph. Recently, I have been playing & coaching at Olney Tennis Club, for two years I have won the singles & doubles championships, & have been playing in the teams, helping them to gain promotion in the men’s & mixed leagues. I am predominantly involved in developing the clubs elite to be the best players they can be. I am currently coaching all of Olney’s winners of the recent Milton Keynes juniors champions event.

During this time I have completed level 1 & 2 coaching badges & I am nearing completion of level 3. I hold a first aid certificate & fully CRB checked.

Using these qualifications I have also been able to coach at Olney Tennis Club, Swanbourne House School, Wavendon Gate School & Bletchley Leisure Centre.

Having competed on the LTA circuit, I hope to pass on all my experience & knowledge of the game, to help improve others. I am committed to developing the pro
