Suzy Larkin appointed as Performance Tennis Coach at Eastbourne College

Exciting News for Eastbourne College – who are delighted to announce the appointment of Suzy Larkin as their Performance Tennis Coach.
In her time as a Touring Professional (2016 – 2018), Suzy reached a career high of 620 in the world rankings and 14 in GB. She is the current Sussex County Champion and has enjoyed recent success in GB Tour events; she played nationally plus internationally as a junior. Suzy has many years of club and performance coaching experience at home and abroad.
Earlier this year, Suzy began working with some of the top players at Eastbourne College, as they trained for GB tour events and she made an immediate impression with her technical coaching and ability to instil good training habits. Her supportive and approachable manner as well as a deep understanding of the strategy and tactics needed for success at GB Tour level and beyond have been invaluable to those who have been coached by her.
Suzy will join an experienced, highly qualified team of tennis coaches and teachers involved in tennis at Eastbourne College. Living on site and being working in a full time role, will allow Suzy to be a consistent day to day presence for our top squad players. As well as working on court individually and in small groups, Suzy will have oversight of the weekly tennis training programme (including fitness, strength and conditioning and mental skills work) – something she is very familiar with from her own school and full time playing days.
Suzy also holds a Mathematics degree (2.1) from Oxford Brooks University following A level success in Mathematics, Government & Politics and Economics & Business. On top of her academic background she will also be a mentor and tutor to pupils at the College.
