2013 James Grindell

Head Coach - James Grindell

James has been leading coaching at Duffield since 2008. He has a Level 5 LTA qualification and 20 years' experience of delivering successful coaching programmes. He is an LTA Primary School Teacher Tutor. James represented Derbyshire at junior and senior level.

Whilst James is accustomed to training juniors and adults to play to high levels, he advises younger members that they shouldn’t take up tennis to win Wimbledon.

'We are keen here to promote tennis as a lifestyle as well as a sport. If a youngster goes on to play as a pro, that’s a bonus but it’s not the be-all and end-all.’

James was the Derbyshire 'Coach of the Year' in 2009.
