David Campbell - Tennis Coach


David Campbell

Passion, creativity, structure, knowledge and teamwork. Within my 16 years I have had the privilege of coaching ‘Grassroots Tennis’, to winning at national level with a University Team.
Domestically, within the UK, I have coached twice at one of the best Clubs in Scotland. I’ve also had the gratitude of working with some of the best players and coaches during that time.
Internationally, I have coached in 5 different Countries fulfilling a variety of interesting and challenging roles. The most recent was in China, where we brought the LTA Mini Tennis system to an entirely new audience.
Now having relocated back to Europe, I am ready for a new challenge and hope to bring my wisdom, dedication and enthusiasm… To the next Club or Academy that I Join.

Jordan Gray - Head Tennis Coach Thorn Park


I am fully aware of the requirements of a modern coach, not only in terms of relaying the correct guidance and applying the coaching ethos but also in terms of the wellbeing and protection of those being coached. I have in more recent times, sat on the same board of management within the local Tennis and Bowling Club with David and was highly impressed by his professionalism, courteous and approachable manner and his ability to assimilate information to make informed comments and decision on an equitable basis
