GARETH Haddon takes over as High Legh Tennis Club head coach next month.

He replaces James Oliver, whose two years in the role come to an end as he pursues a career in psychology after completing a masters degree.

Oliver says the coaching programme is in safe hands with former Derbyshire county player Haddon.

“He is one of the most dedicated, professional and approachable coaches I know,” said Oliver.

“I’m sure the club will go from strength to strength.”
