As well as forming Badgers with Tony Clark in 1998, he has 30 years experience as a professional coach, supplying coaching throughout the sussex schools, including 9 years as coach at Withdean Tennis Centre.

Mel gained his first LTA qualification at Chelsea College and moved on to attend a residential course at Bisham Abbey (The then LTA training HQ) taking his practical at Queens Club which he describes as ‘pressure’ with four examiners marking the lessons!

Since then he has attended numerous refresher courses around the Country one of which he recalls playing wheelchair tennis against the Olympic Champion Peter Norfolk which was a real challenge. The outcome is not reported !! He regularly worked at Vilamoura Tennis Club in Portugal, so much so that he a ended up building his own house in the Country.
