Mark Sutton

Development Coach

I am an LTA accredited coach with an up to date first aid qualification. I started coaching in 2001 at a local club in Lincolnshire before moving to Portugal in 2003. I enjoyed 12 years in the sun building up a tennis club before moving home in order to start family life in 2014. I enjoy the social side of tennis coaching and helping anyone improve who has enthusiasm for the game.

I joined Horncastle Tennis Club in 2007 and am still enjoying helping players fulfil their potential, make new friends and have fun along the way.

Level 2 Assistant Coach

I joined Horncastle's Coaching team in 2014, shortly after completing my level 2 leadership at school. This soon became my passion as I enjoyed helping the players improve their tennis. I then went onto completing my level 1 coaching course in 2017 and the level 2 in 2019. I have also obtained an up to date first aid.
