Why did you get involved in coaching? It was by accident really. 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!

Brief summary of your coaching experience. I have coached part-time for over 20 years and have been full time now for over 3 years. My pupils carry a total of 9 World titles between them
