‘We’re delighted to have Stuart join us here at Tennis Wales. His combination of skills and experiences as a player, coach and volunteer for Merthyr Tydfil Tennis Club alongside his professional and project management skills from managing customer care at Trade Centre Wales are an exciting blend to help us drive forward the ‘Tennis Opened Up in Wales’ strategy.’
