Tennis Coach – July 2019
Meet our resident coach Gary Fitzjohn. Born in Thorney, Gary loved sport from an early age; he excelled in every sport and became captain in football, cricket and athletics. Besides playing football for Peterborough United youth side, he took part in triathlons, cycling, running, and competed in the British Championships in both roller speed skating and ice speed skating!
At school he was told he could become a promising tennis player but with all his other sports it wasn’t until his football career was coming to an end that he returned to tennis and golf, his two passions, competing and playing in many teams.
Our four times club singles champion took his coaching exams last year to become a Level 2 Coach, and together with Bruno Maraschin comes under the umbrella of our On2Court coaching team.
