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.”
