“ There’s no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession.Talent does not exist, we are all equals as human beings. You could be anyone if you put in the time. You will reach the top, and that’s that. I am not talented, I am obsessed. ” – Conor McGregor

Coach Karl is our jack of all trades when it comes to tennis coaching. Whether he is working with a 6-year-old who wants to focus on coordination or training a Davis Cup team, Karl has the tools for every trick. Karl’s Irish charm makes shaping up your game a tonne of fun too 🙂


Coach Karl is a great choice for children’s or ladies’ groups. When forming groups he considers different personalities as well as what level one is at to ensure that dynamics work well. Our clients love his weekly group sessions.


Interestingly, Karl has a degree in Finance and comes from a banking background, which makes him quite a hit with our financial clients who enjoy a good banter between sets. Karl is also a football fanatic and you often hear him in deep discussion over games with our footballing fans. His passion for tennis however, couldn’t keep him behind an office desk too long which led him to join Tennis Inc in 2012.
