Appointment of new Head Coach

GBLTC are pleased to announce the appointment of our new Head Coach, Richard Dupree. Richard is a Level 3 Accredited + LTA coach with a wealth of experience in adult and junior coaching.

Richard started playing tennis at GBLTC when he was 15 years old and stayed at the club until he was 20, the last 2 years of which he was an assistant coach at the club. He has represented the Club as a junior and senior playing both Essex and local league tennis and still enjoys playing competitively now.

Since leaving GBLTC he has been coaching all over the world, including Greece, Turkey, Hong Kong and Australia. During this time he was appointed Tennis Co-ordinator for an active holiday company, managing over 20 coaches and running tennis programmes across 8 holiday resorts. Throughout his time in this role he developed the tennis programme to include a variety of sessions for all levels of players.

Richard now lives in Boreham and is excited at the prospect of growing GBLTC into a fun, sociable and busy club (with your help of course).
Richard will be starting at GBLTC with immediate effect.
