Tom Bellingham is one of the youngest members of the team and first met Rob at the age of six when Rob was Tom’s first ever tennis coach! Tom is very proud to be the first person in Wales to successfully complete the Welsh Tennis Coach Apprenticeship Scheme. Tom has previously been a valued helper on court at Windsor LTC where he completed his Tennis Leader Award in 2012 and quickly moved on to pass his level 1 & 2 coaching certificates in under 12 months.  Although Tom has a little addiction to the Xbox 360 he also plays in a regular 5-a-side league and represents his local men’s tennis team.  Over the course of his apprenticeship Tom has completed two level 3 diplomas, the level 3 coaching certificate and is learning the ways and life of a tennis coach through his mentor Rob Cunningham.

Tom is head of the development programme at Penarth LTC and The Vale Hotel. Please contact Tom for private coaching at these venues and enquiries relating to coaching programme at PLTC and The Vale Hotel.
