Vielen Dank für das Tennistraining!

During March 2014 I coached players from Oberaudorfer Tennis Club and Schloss Neubeuern Gymnasium.

Saludos a todos mis amigos en la Academia Sanchez-Casal, gracias por le formacion.

From 2007-10, trained with Daniel Sorribas at the Sanchez-Casal Academy, studying and practising the drills, methods and philosophy of the Spanish system which produces top 10 players, including Andy Murray. Daniel was the coach of Guillermo Canas. Gained the Spanish RPT certificate. Returned to the Academy to train with Emilio Sanchez and gained the next, level 4 RPT, coaching certificate in 2011. Training with world class coaches and being assessed by them, instilled in me the ethic of helping each player to develop, regardless of their initial ability level.

I am a qualified tennis racket restringer with the UKRSA.
