Community Open Day Report

Sunday, 23rd September 2018.



2 former professional tennis players coached at the club throughout the day:

Danny Sapsford and Jocelyn Rae, both ex-professional tennis players, visited for the day offering coaching to members and non-members to help us fundraise for our court resurfacing project.

In association with Bright Ideas for Tennis.

Danny played on the ATP Tour from 1987-1999, reaching a career high ATP singles ranking of 170 and 83 in Doubles and represented Great Britain in the Davis Cup from 1990-95. Danny competed in all 4 Grand Slams with his best performance coming at Wimbledon '99 where he made the 3rd Round before losing to eventual champion, Pete Sampras.

Joss has been one of the best doubles players in GB for the past 5 years, winning over 20 WTA / ITF titles. With a WTA highest world ranking of 67, Joss made the 3rd round of the Australian Open (2016), and the QF of the Mixed Doubles at Wimbledon (2017). She was a permanent fixture in the GB Fed Cup Team from 2011-17, but the highlight of her career came at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi where she won a Gold medal in the Mixed Doubles with compatriot Colin Fleming.
