Tennis Manager

Meet Sam; 

Sam has always been very sporty. From a young age he played most sports but mainly football as he was growing up. It wasn’t until he turned 13 that his attention turned towards tennis; he started playing once a week at his local small tennis club. By 15 Sam was playing at Halton High Performance Tennis Centre within a performance group of children the same age as himself. He quickly picked the sport up, really got the tennis bug and by 16 was accepted on to the scholarship scheme at Sutton Tennis Academy. Sam was the first person in the history of the academy to be accepted for the scholarship who wasn’t at the necessary level on paper. When he turned 17 Sam’s attention turned towards coaching as injuries played a factor in his playing time, and he never really looked back. He went back to Halton High Performance Centre and did a years coaching apprenticeship working alongside many internationally recognised coaches; also learning the ins and outs of how a Tennis Centre operates. As he turned 18, Sam went full circle and came back to the club he started playing at when he was 13 as their head coach. He stayed there for 2 years before working at 4 other tennis clubs around Buckinghamshire, ending up being a coach at Aylesbury Lawn Tennis Club, which is a county recognised centre.

His Mark Warner journey started as General coaching staff at Levante Beach Resort in Rhodes for the full season when he was 20. He returned there a further 2 more years in a row and also fitted a winter season in Val D’Isere in 2015/2016. Sam then returned back to Rhodes from April to September and was offered his first managers role working at Lakitira Beach Resort for the last 2 months of the 2015 season and then returned in 2016 for a full season as their Tennis Manager.
