Head of Sports and Kids@Kings
Renowned Guernsey tennis player and coach Rob West joined us in 2021 to take on the role of Head of Sports and to launch and lead our brand new Kids@Kings programme.
Rob grew up in Guernsey and left at the age of 16 to pursue his tennis-playing ambitions, firstly on a scholarship to Millfield School and then on a subsequent scholarship to Cleveland State University in Ohio, USA.
His passion for tennis provided him with numerous opportunities to play, train and travel all over the world. On graduating, he took up a number of prestigious coaching positions in Ohio, New Jersey and New York.
He is a United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) Certified Elite Pro and a Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) Accredited Coach and since 2010 has been a full time manager and coach at the Guernsey Tennis Centre where he has continued to pass on the knowledge he has gained by helping others to develop to their full potential and fulfil their sporting ambitions.
Rob is excited about the opportunity to create top-class kids activities across a range of disciplines at Kings and says that being involved from day one has allowed him to develop his vision with input and ideas right from the start. He is looking forward to building a strong team of leaders to help deliver the programmes with him.
Outside of work he plays tennis and padel and enjoys keeping active. He loves getting outdoors and walking his dog Rafa (yes, after Nadal!).
