It was fun to present at the BTCA conference today. I first attended the BTCA Conference in 1989, two years after fellow presenter Pat Cash won Wimbledon.

The event has changed from what is was all those years ago at Bisham Abbey, but it was fun to be back.



A fantastic day yesterday at Evesham Boathouse Evesham Rowing Club for the Inspire2coach staff event. The weather did us proud on the banks of the River Avon as we played rounders and cricket on Crown Meadow followed by a barbeque on the balcony and presentations in the beautiful bar and function room.
