The Committee is pleased to announce that Tadhg Lambe has been appointed as our first Director of Tennis. Tadhg brings to this key role a wealth of experience across all facets of the sport.
Tadhg has worked at the highest domestic level with Leinster and Munster Branch Coaching Squads for many years. In recent years, as the National Training Programme developed, he has worked individually with some of the most talented Junior players.

He himself is a Level 3 coach and besides being a regular participant at World and European Conferences he has worked with international coaches such as Ivo Van Aken, Louis Cayer, Leif Dahlgren and Frank Van Freyenhoven.
As a player, Tadhg was a leading member of the Sutton 5-in-a-row Class 1 winning team in the 1970s and won numerous tournaments.
For the last 3 years Tadhg has worked with Coaching Ireland and sports governing bodies in improving coaching structures.
