Meet your Tennis Coach Jo
“As a junior I played county and regional tennis and I was privileged to be trained by Internationally renowned tennis coach David Sammel at Match point on his junior training squad.
I qualified as an LTA Level 3 Development Coach in 1999 and I coached abroad until 2003.
I moved back to the UK in 2003 and worked along side Head Coach at Heaton Mersey Tennis Club and whilst I enjoyed coaching I took a break from to concentrate on being a mum.
When I could I continued to focus on freelance tennis coaching providing schools and clubs with tennis coaching programmes. I worked in and around Chester providing PPA cover for primary schools and after school sports clubs.
I am passionate about sport both in its mental and physical benefits especially for children. I believe that sport benefits and develops coordination skills in a fun and interactive way. Tennis is a fantastic game for all the family and I am excited to be coaching at Alderley Park and look forward to seeing you all on court!”
