Meet Our Tennis Coaches
The Shrewsbury Club tennis programme is managed by inspire2coach, the leading tennis operator in the Midlands, which also looks after the coaching programmes at several Shropshire tennis clubs.
Josh Price is the club manager for our Shropshire programmes and each club works together and links into the Shrewsbury club where ever possible.
Simon Haddleton, Tennis Coach
I oversee the delivery of our tennis programme at The Shrewsbury Club as Director of Tennis. Both the indoors and outreach programmes are geared towards creating a love for the sport. My main focus is creating an atmosphere in which all players can enjoy their tennis and create an affinity with the sport which will stay with them forever.
Three words: i love tennis
Adam Wharf, Performance Manager
The Performance Manager here at the Shrewsbury Club, I come from a professional playing background and have been coaching since I stopped playing full time. I was programme manager at Edgbaston Priory HPC before taking this exciting position here at The Shrewsbury Club. My role is to impact all players on our Academy and raise the level of standards across the club. Our main focus is to facilitate the needs of our players and to also help them gain a scholarship at an American university.
Three words: Always seeking perfection
Simon Bird, Tennis Coach
I have been coaching at The Shrewsbury Club ever since it first opened its doors. My role is to co-ordinate the adult programme and oversee the club's teams currently playing in the Shropshire Summer League. I represent the county at over 45 level and still enjoy the competitive side of the sport. I also had the huge honour of representing Great Britiain's over-45s team in Spain which was a great experience.
