I had studied various coaching manuals to improve my own game. I was then asked to help several friends which I did quite successfully. Then a 12 year old girl came to my club and asked if we had a coach. Her name is Kelly Fisher and the rest, as they say, is history!

I have now coached part-time for over 20 years and have been full time now for over a dozen years. My pupils carry a total of twelve world titles between them
