My name is Giles and I am one of the team of coaches at the Excel Tennis Academy.
My previous roles have included working as Head of P.E. at St. Edward’s school (Reading) and Head Coach at Wychwoods Tennis Club. I still continue to play competitive tennis and have enjoyed being Captain of the Wychwoods Mens ‘A’ Team for some time now. In my spare time I always look forward to spending time with my wife Rachel and my son Thomas.
