Maccabi GB, in partnership with UJIA and the Jewish Chronicle, is proud to appoint Jordan Miles as Junior Tennis Coach for the European Maccabi Games (EMG) in Budapest this summer. Miles will work alongside Tennis Chair Stephen Joseph.
Miles is currently Director of Tennis at Radlett Lawn Tennis and Squash Club in Hertfordshire where he has built a successful tennis programme for all standards. It also includes a highly regarded junior performance academy whereby world ranked juniors have been produced, including some of the athletes who will represent Maccabi Great Britain this summer. He played competitively as a junior before making the decision to play full time as an adult where he represented Middlesex and competed abroad.
Speaking about his appointment, Miles said “Through my experience, I fully understand the challenges juniors face when competing, particularly abroad, and I've witnessed the benefits it can bring to an individual, both in terms of character and team spirit. Budapest will be very much a team effort and I see a large part of my role as ensuring the players all support each other through the tough times and the good.”
He continued, “I am extremely honoured to have been asked to take on the role of Team Maccabi GB tennis coach and I will strive to ensure each player takes something valuable away from their experience. But make no mistake, we are there to win!”
