I have been coaching trampolining for many years, with my first international performer competing in 1980. I have also been a National Trampolining Judge since 1982, and International Judge since 1992.
I have coached performers at all levels, from beginners and recreational bouncers, up to and including World and European Gold Medallists. I am a high performance coach and have also coached numerous international trampolinists from other countires (USA, Canada, Switzerland, South Africa & Sweden).
I have a current and enhanced CRB/DBS, a Child Protection Certificate, Safeguarding and Protecting Children Certificate, and I am First Aid trained. (Please note, all coaches with Ace of Clubs Trampolining are DBS (CRB) checked before they can commence working with us). I am also a fully qualified teacher, and I have spent most of my working career in sports centre management, in both dedicated sports centres and dual use facilities.

The aim of Ace of Clubs is to make classes enjoyable, fun, and educational, enabling the performer to get the most out of their sessions with us, and to most of their talents and abilities. We strive to make our students believe in themselves and gain confidence and skill which will benefit them in all aspects of life, and not just the sport.
We have now gained our ClubMark and GymMark quality assurance status, meaning that your child will be in the safest of hands and be taught to the highest standard.
With our rapidly expanding team of coaches, we are now able to deliver adult, competitive, recreational. pre-school and pan-disability trampolining as well as recreational and pre-school gymnastics.
We work with schools with their GCSE students as well as those working towards their Duke of Edinburgh Awards. We have worked with Team GB Aerial skiers, Olympic divers, those working towards the stunt register to name but a few.
