James Mott - Tennis Coach


I started tennis at the relatively late age of 13. By the time I was 16 I had represented Middlesex County and was playing in national level competitions by 17. I learnt to play in Hackney where I grew up in the local park with my dad and eventually attended squads at the Islington Tennis Centre and Westway Centre.

At the age of 17 I was invited to train full time at the Wrexham Academy with Mike Walker. I spent 3 fantastic years there and had to opportunity to train with many world ranked players. in 2007 aged 21 I was offered a place at the University of Bath to study Sports Performance and represent their tennis team. I really enjoyed the team aspect of representing the university and have met many of my best friends during this time. At my best I was ranked within the UK's top 50 male players.

May 2010 - December 2012: After leaving university I worked in IT recruitment for 2.5 years in the City. This tough sales environment taught me to run a business and how to create a business within a business. Whilst I love tennis and working within the game is the next best thing to being a professional player, I really think these experiences  helped shape me and provided the work ethic and focus required to succeed in coaching.

2012 - 2021: I worked at the Islington Tennis Centre as a self employed coach. I then took on the role of Regional Tennis Manager managing programmes across 13 different East London sites. This gave me the inspiration that I could run my coaching programmes full time.

I have a passion for Performance and have coached a number of county and international players. I am currently the 9 and 10 and under boys county coach for the Middlesex.

I have represented Middlesex and North Wales at county level and continue to play Team Tennis and the National Premier League. This summer I took part in the 35's County Cup in Bournemouth.

In my spare time I love seeing my close fiends and family. I am an excellent cook love trying new restaurants. I have an Arsenal season ticket and attend as many games as I can.
