I got to know Tom approximately 4 and a half years ago when he started as the Tennis Development Officer at East Lothian Council. I am the Chair of one of the East Lothian tennis clubs. We have worked together on a number of initiatives including introducing all ability children’s tennis classes into the area. He is proactive and enthusiastic and has a real interest in engaging children and adults in tennis. He has also coached both children and adults (beginner through to club players) at the club with good feedback from the participants particularly around the support and encouragement he offers. He makes the coaching fun and is very good at including everyone in the activities. He also coached my son in the County development squad and so has experience of coaching more advanced players too. He coordinates the running of the East Lothian annual tennis tournament, which, by number of entries, is the largest tournament in the UK outside of Wimbledon. It offers something for all ages and all standards and Tom makes sure that everyone feels welcome and enjoys the experience. Tom is a confident individual, interested in many sports, and keen to share and nurture this interest in others.

I have worked with Tom as an assistant coach and also received coaching from him so this testimony is from first-hand experience. He has a very friendly approach and has a great knowledge of tennis coaching and displays this in all his sessions. All class members benefit from this, learn a lot and importantly enjoy themselves. I would highly recommend Tom if you are looking for some excellent Tennis coaching.
