Danny Burrell

Head Tennis Coach
LTA Level 3 Accredited Plus

Danny graduated from Leeds Beckett University in 2019 with a Dean’s Award in Physical Education. During this time, he competed in Grade 3 tournaments for the Men’s 4th to 6th team at university, enabling him to reach his current LTA ranking of 441st nationally. Danny has coached alongside ex-Head Coach Paul Johnson at Roundhay Tennis Club and has learnt much from his methods of coaching. In his role as Head Coach at Pudsey Tennis Club, he coached their junior team to the Bradford and District tennis league final.

Additionally, Danny works as the Community Tennis Activator at Leeds City Council, coordinating tennis programmes in local parks. He envisions that working with different clubs and venues in harmony will enable him to achieve his long term goal of increasing tennis participation and access to tennis throughout Yorkshire. Furthermore, he is very motivated to learn about new methods of coaching to develop himself and therefore to see a greater development in the players who he coaches. This sparks his desire to undertake his Level 4 coaching qualification this coming year.

Lastly, he is incredibly excited and determined to make Sandal Tennis Club’s coaching programme the best in Yorkshire!
