We are pleased to announce the appointment of Karim Aouichaoui as performance coach on the tennis coaching team at the club.
Karim is a highly respected and sought after coach and we are really pleased to have him join us at the club as Performance Coach.
He was previously based at David Lloyd Southampton where was employed on the academy programme working in particular with 5 regional and 3 national and international players on an individual basis as well as in squads. As a player Karim represented GB in 4 separate age groups and was a full time member of the LTA Bath Academy. He has 4 years of high level coaching experience and has been involved in tennis for 16 years (playing from a very early age!) He continues to play at a high level and is a member of the mens county squad, helping them this year to gain promotion to the top tier of mens county tennis.
Karim has a proven track record of developing young tennis players, of which 10 have become nationally recognised LTA matrix players. Fundamental to his success has been his work on developing the best tennis and physical conditioning programmes to allow each player to maximise their potential. This will prove to be a valuable asset in our programme making full use of the fitness resource and expertise that the club has to offer.
Karim will be working closely with our new Head of Player Development Andy Sheridan with a particular emphasis on the higher end players. But he will also be supporting the team in other areas of coaching to support our objectives of increasing standards across the board in all age groups.
