Head Coach, Stephen Wright’s Success
Stephen Wright, Head Coach at Chalfont St. Peter Tennis Club, Farnham Common and Stoke Poges played in his first ITF 35&Over Seniors event between the 19th-21st July. The event took place at Harpenden Tennis Club and was a grade 4 event. This event was Stephen’s first ITF Seniors events however he won his last match against number 1 seed Zoltan Szekeres 6-1, 6-0 to win the title. We wish Stephen luck in his future ITF matches and no doubt his current world singles ranking of 601 will climb over the course of the year.
Stephen was also accepted into The British Senior Closed Grass Court Championships that took place at Wimbledon between the 18th – 21st August. His doubles partner was world number 42, Gavin Mason.
Stephen’s philosophy is that of competition. He feels it is important to compete at every level of the game from mini tennis all the way through to Seniors Tennis and everything inbetween. Players at Chalfont St. Peter Tennis Club are given the oppotunity to compete regularly in league matches, Team Challenges, match plays which are run at Farnham Common Tennis Club as well being pointed in the direction of local competitions.
