  • How long have you worked at Tennis Wales?    13 years
  • What is your background?  I started playing tennis at the age of 10 at Brymbo Tennis Club, playing club and county level tennis.  At 15 I volunteered at a local mini tennis group and then took coaching qualifications to become a Level 3 club coach. On leaving school I did an apprenticeship at a local garage as a Vehicle Refinisher (aka a Paint Sprayer!!).  When Wrexham Tennis Centre was first built I then became a trainee manager and continued coaching at the centre and other clubs.  Following this I worked for Wrexham Local Authority as Tennis Development Officer, then left this position in 2006 to take up the North Wales Development position for Tennis Wales.
  • What do you like most about working at Tennis Wales? I love the variety of working in participation as you get to work with volunteers, professional coaches and local authorities across so many areas of the game including education, competitions and with my biggest passion disability tennis.
  • What are your hobbies?  Having been a golf widow for a number of years, much to the disappointment of my son and better half I have now taken up the game (well, my version of the game.  #workinprogress).
