I started playing tennis in Tramore TC at the age of 7! It became obvious very quickly tennis was going to be a passion of mine – if not an obsession! I’m hoping to instil this love of tennis’ unique smaller individual and team sports aspect into the kids and adults of Tramore. Through my coaching I always strive to develop my students skills and knowledge of the tennis but most importantly; their love of the game.

To obtain my Tennis coaching license with Tennis Ireland I have continuous CDP (coach development points) to acquire. As you can see from the list of courses above; I try to learn about various demographics within the community to make myself a well rounded coach who can cater for anyone who may contact me.
I’m a vendor for the National Governing Body of tennis in Ireland; Tennis Ireland, most noticeably getting placed as the coach for the u11 south east squad – which I have successfully been reemployed for commencing September 2022. Other employers include Munster Tennis (running the Enjoy Tennis program for tennis players with special needs), Sport Ireland, Waterford Sports Partnership, Holy Cross NS Tramore, Ard Scoil NaMara Tramore, Educate Together Tramore are just to name a few.
As mentioned above, I run the Enjoy Tennis program. This is a passion of mine. I have experience working with people (adults and children of all ages) who are of limited mobility or wheelchair bound, Down Syndrome, VI visually impaired or hard of hearing.
