SPARTA is very pleased to welcome two new sports coaches who have joined the team this year. Adam Bussons and Simon Bourner have been working at a David Lloyd Tennis Centre in the UK coaching both children and adults and this is their first time working overseas.
Adam told us about his favourite sport and his coaching experience: “Tennis is my main sport and my biggest passion when it comes to coaching and playing and I have coached children as young as 3 years old, and adults aged over 70! Tennis isn’t my only sport, I also have my coaching badges in a large number of sports, including football, badminton, volleyball, basketball, netball. I am extremely excited and honoured to be able to start my new experience here in Bahrain with SPARTA.”
Simon is also really enjoying his new adventure in Bahrain: “I have felt very welcome from the day I landed in Bahrain and look forward to my new career as a SPARTA coach. I have been a tennis coach for over 7 years and have come from running the junior programme at David Lloyd in Devon. I am a very keen sports person and have played most sports to a good level.”
We started the term with a Back to School Sports Camp attended by over 70 children. All activities are now in full swing with sign ups already exceeding last term. New activities for this year include Tots Tennis and Basketball. Swimming lessons continue to be our most popular activity and we hope to extend the programme later this term in order to meet the high demand.
