Last year, Laura and 18 other young people joined the Salts Tennis Club Tennis Leader course at Salt Grammar School. In November, she successfully completed her coaching certification. Throughout the winter, Laura ably assisted Salts Junior coaching programme, enthusiastically turning up whatever the weather!

Jim Dyer, Club Chairman said, “To be selected by the LTA, after only 18 months experience, is a just reward for Laura’s dedication and commitment to tennis coaching”.

John Bretherick, Club Secretary added, “This is a notable achievement for one so young, we are all very proud of Laura and what she has achieved”.

Head coach Gul Rashid commented, “Laura is fully committed in her attitude to coaching, and has been a big help over the past 18 months”.

All members of the club would like to say well done to Laura and hope she has a very enjoyable time at Wimbledon. The experience will certainly help her in her aspiration to become a sports teacher.
