Amy Mellersh

Amy has been coaching and helping at the Junior club since the age of 11. In that time Amy has grown as a player from a beginner to a junior county player to a national circuit tournament player and senior county player, and she has played in our Ladies A and Mixed A, B and C teams.

Amy has always shown an interest in other players’ development. She enjoys coaching, organising tournaments, helping with scoring and umpiring and has done this many times at local and national tournaments. Amy uses her experience in drills and practice learned from some of the very best coaches in the country to help the club develop our overall coaching program by offering thoughts and ideas on how we can improve our coaching sessions and then demonstrating them with expertise.
