The achievements of Edgbaston Priory Club’s tennis coach Stuart Maidment were recognised yesterday when he was presented with the Aegon Coach of the Year Award at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London.
Stuart has been instrumental in the development of the club’s vibrant community programme at Lordswood School and Cannon Hill Park. 2013 was a hugely successful year which saw Stuart grow the numbers on the community programme, giving people the opportunity to play tennis who would otherwise not have had the opportunity. Stuart managed to attract 70 new players alone on to his Tennis Xpress course by using Amazon Local for bookings.
Stuart also successfully completed his Master Club Coach qualification within the last 12 months which is the highest level of LTA qualification.
