About Emily

I have played tennis all my life and have had great opportunities to enjoy the game at all levels. I have represented my county at all age groups, and represented the Oxford Brookes Uni First Team during my years of study. I have a 1st Class Degree in Sport and Exercise Science and find the biomechanics and strength and conditioning side of tennis extremely interesting. 

I have only recently turned my hand to coaching and joined the Excel Tennis Academy Team in April of 2021, after playing for Witney Tennis Club for a few years. I have developed a passion for tennis over the years, and am thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to pass on my experience, knowledge and love for the sport to both Juniors and Adults.

I love watching and taking part of all sports, and many will know I am a massive Exeter Chiefs fan from growing up in Devon. I love cooking and reading in my spare time, but my favourite place is on court!
