Richard, an LTA Level 4 qualified and Accredited+ coach, joined Sherborne School as Director of Tennis in January 2022. At Sherborne School, Richard works with all age groups throughout the year providing a tennis programme for boys who wish to develop their skills and push themselves to get the most out of their tennis. Richard also provides coaching to boys who are starting tennis for the first time.

Richard has entered two teams to the LTA Glanville cup in addition to entering a team into the LTA Years 9&10 Schools Competition. He hopes to provide boys with the skills needed to progress in these tournaments in years to come, in addition to giving boys access to LTA tournaments at weekends to reach their full potential.

Using his coaching and playing experience Richard will also be helping to develop the all-round skills of the School’s Sports Scholars as part of the School’s High-Performance Programme and is also helping to develop the tennis programme at Sherborne Prep.

Richard currently lives in Dorchester with his wife Georgie and is a tutor in School House.
