We were very fortunate to have the Tennis Circus join us for a Masterclass session this term, run by ex British Davis Cup and former professional tour player, Danny Sapsford.
Danny played on the ATP Tour from 1987-99, reaching a career high ATP singles ranking of 170 and 83 in Doubles. He represented GB in the Davis Cup from 1990-95. Danny competed in all 4 Grand Slams with his best performance coming at Wimbledon '99 where he made the 3rd Round before losing to eventual champion, Pete Sampras. In 1998, Danny became the Men’s National Singles Champion and also won the Doubles Event on 3 separate occasions.
The theme of the ‘Tactical Masterclass’ day was
• Intercepting • Playing as a pair - roles and responsibilities • When to attack / defend • Playing to your strengths
The 50+ girls who attended the session were pleased to have the opportunity to gain advice and help from such an esteemed player.
