More About Me…….

 

Qualifications

I am an LTA level 4 qualified coach and have held a full LTA coaching license for the last 10 years. I take many courses every year covering every aspect of tennis and I am passionate about developing myself as a coach.

 

Playing background

Karl Playing Tennis

I started playing tennis on the park courts behind my house at about 8 years old and later became a member at OVSC where I won the junior tournament. I also played at Walton-On-Thames tennis club and David Lloyd Heston and played most days of the week.

I have won the mens’ singles and doubles at OVSC several times, reached the final of the mens’ Surreys, more recently the final of the mens’ Surrey over 35s, and won the Surrey mixed doubles with fellow coach, Tanya Williams.

 

Coaching philosophy

I believe in making tennis fun, simple and making it a good experience for the person learning, whether they are 3 years old or 70 years old (yes I do teach people of both those ages!). I spend lots of time with the team of coaches to ensure that we are all teaching similar things in a safe and positive environment.

 

Outside of tennis

My other passion is music. I have played sax & piano for even longer than I’ve been playing tennis, and have played gigs in every weird and wonderful location ranging from The Vic pub in Oxshott to ski resorts to a castle in Bordeaux.

I’m also interested in web design. I maintain this web site, helped to build the website for my Dad’s investigation business and the sax site above.

Another interesting hobby of mine was boxing. I got interested a couple of years ago and fulfilled one of my life ambitions by getting into the ring and having a bout in November 2009. Click here if you’d like to see my bout – that’s me in the blue headguard.
