Nick was appointed Racquets Manager in January 2017. He is a club professional with over 20 years of Academy, Club and Racquets Centre experience, and has won many junior and adult county, national and international tennis titles.
One of the highlights of his tennis coaching career, was managing the IMG Academy (formerly Nick Bollitieri Academy) in the Middle East, working with many touring pros from Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa. Nick also managed all the outreach programs to find the next stars of the region and worked with the local Davis Cup Teams culminating in their first ever victories in the competition.
Nick returned to his Bedfordshire tennis roots in 2002 when he set out to develop various clubs in south Bedfordshire focusing on increasing junior participation and membership levels. In the first 3 years Nick saw membership grow by 100% at each club and increased competitive team participation fourfold. Within these clubs Nick created a central performance hub encouraging the strongest players to train together as well as at their home clubs, coaching several county champions along the way. Since 2012 Nick has been managing the Adults tennis section at David Lloyd Milton Keynes. He has overseen an increase in player and team participation at all levels, with the teams recently winning all but one of the premier division titles they competed in.
Nick is a level 4 LTA registered coach and PTR Pro and international tester and still competes regularly on the Seniors Tour where he recently reached a career high ITF world doubles ranking of 9. He lives in Dunstable with his family and is also a keen golfer, playing off a handicap of 8 at his local club when time allows.
Nick is looking forward to setting up a first class coaching and playing environment for all racquet sports at Club Towers focusing on the members’ needs first.
