BETA Highlights 2018

What a year 2018 has been. We have seen the return of Federer and Djokovic to the top of their games. Federer starting the year in blistering form winning the Aussie Open, Nadal making Roland Garros his home once again and Novak Djokovic making a great comeback and winning the final two slams of the year. The girls were split between, Wozniacki, Halep, Kerber and young gun Naomi Osaka.

Closer to home – we have seen the size of the BETA coaching staff grow in number. Towards the end of 2017 we welcomed Steve Dunklin bringing an abundance of experience at many different coaching levels. We have also seen Joshua Sapwell, former tour level player and Orange Bowl winner join our team. Both members have made a great addition in this last year and we thank them both for their help so far.

Nick’s 12 hour Marathon for SMA!

Swapping a coaching day for one of playing consecutively for 12 hours from 6am to 6pm is not something I would typically do, however, in the name of charity, in particular, my sister Anna’s charity, Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), I had no reservations about setting upon this task.
