"I’m really pleased that Sian and Olivia are moving back to Wales – it’s a ringing endorsement of the progress we are making and shows their confidence in the high standard of coaching in Wales, and at Wrexham in particular."

Sian and Matt are both from the Wrexham area, while Olivia is from Newport, South Wales.

Peter McCraw, the former national women’s coach to Tennis Australia, and recently appointed to a senior performance position with Tennis New Zealand, was the main speaker at the Tennis Wales Coaches Conference in Cardiff in February.

He made such an impression that Tennis Wales have worked hard to secure further visits.

After his day in Wrexham, he will spend Sunday in Cardiff working with coaches from around Wales and with some of the country’s most talented under-12s.
