Allan is a level 3 Accredited + coach who came late to the game but rediscovered the joy of endless hours playing (un-coached) tennis as a child. Allan previously had his own retail business in the film industry which has helped him to deal with people of all ages and types. He likes coaching beginners and improvers of all ages and is keen to get people from less privileged backgrounds to appreciate and play tennis including children with special needs. In 2020 he completed a Diploma from Modern Tennis International- a method of condensing the game into simple, easy to understand principles with the aim of teaching proficiency in the game as quickly as possible whilst maximising the fun of the game. When not coaching or playing Allan looks after his small children trying to interest them in the game.
