Julian played in the National Student Championships in 1993, and was a key member of the Exeter University team that made the semi-finals in 1994. He gave up his full time teaching career in 2002 to form a tennis coaching company, Acestars in Berkshire. Julian relocated to Maidstone in 2006 to concentrate on full time coaching for Penenden Heath Tennis Academy (now SE Tennis).
By specialising in the very young juniors and ensuring they develop very sound basics in the game at an early age, Julian has been almost solely responsible for many red, orange & green ball tournament victories achieved by the junior players. Julian did an advanced Spanish RPT course in 2010 and has studied the system that produced Nadal, Murray and many other world class players.
Julian's enthusiasm and passion for the game can be appreciated by juniors & adults who attend his coaching, whether it be in a group or a private lesson.
