Head Tennis Coach
Ashley started playing tennis at the age of 8 and continued through to his late teens. He competed on the British Tour, ITF circuit and in the national championships. At the age of 16, Ashley started coaching and hitting with some of his club’s junior players to make some money to support his competition expenses. Coaching soon became his passion and at 18 years of age, he decided to take on a full time career in coaching.
Junior Captain & Coach
Hello, my name is Andrew Palmer and I have been a member at the club since I was 5 years old having played tennis since I was 4. I have represented the Avenue competitively at all levels up to under 16 and in the last 4 years I have starting coaching on the program as well.
I have been studying sports fitness and development at college for the past two years and this year will be taking a sport coaching course at college.
Becoming Junior Captain is something that I would take great pride in doing because it would be giving the youth a chance to improve and give them more time playing tennis.
Junior Tennis Secretary
I’m really keen to support the young people in the club enjoy their tennis and make some good friends along the way. I’ve got 2 daughters aged 15yrs and 9yrs and understand how important it is for them to have fun playing tennis. I would welcome any ideas from the juniors and parents as we look to develop what we offer children & young people.
I am passionate about healthy lifestyle choices, sport and fitness, especially running half marathons, mountain biking, snowboarding & windsurfing.
I enjoy helping others to reach their potential.
