Special recognition for dedicated tennis coach

June 24th, 2019

A popular and established Monmouth tennis coach was a special guest at the Fever-Tree Championships at The Queen’s Club last week.

Chris Davis, who has coached for 46 years, was recognised for his outstanding service and dedication to the sport by the Lawn Tennis Association.

Mr Davis moved to the area 28 years ago and is the Head of Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools Tennis Academy.

He had an excellent day in London and enjoyed seeing Wimbledon and Olympic champion Andy Murray return to the court after a long injury lay-off.

“I was deeply honoured to receive a very special invitation to The Queen’s Club,” said Mr Davis.

Mr Davis’ passion for the game is showing no signs of dwindling and he is driving force in the Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools Tennis Academy.

He is keen to continue to encourage support, nurture and develop a whole new crop of players and coaches who share his love of tennis.

Mr Davis has coached hundreds of players in a range of settings, including local tennis clubs, primary and secondary schools, and he established a tennis hub in Coleford in 1991.
