WTC Appoints New Head Coach

WTC is delighted to announce that Melissa House is taking over from Rob Macdonald as our Head Coach from 1st September. It’s a very important appointment for the Club and we consider that WTC is very lucky to have secured her services.

A native of Penarth, Melissa is a fully licensed Level 4 coach and has been a senior and junior Welsh International in her time. She’s currently coach to the South Wales County Girls u18 and u14 teams and will continue in that position alongside her new role as our Head Coach.

Melissa has recently been combining roles as Junior Tennis Manager at Virgin Active Glamorgan and Mini Tennis Performance Coach at the XL Academy at Cardfiff Met (Cyncoed). Prior to that she had many successful years as Head Coach at Penarth Windsor.


Melissa plans to build on the success of Rob’s coaching programme with mini, junior and adult coaching continuing on a similar timetable as last term. The Autumn Coaching term will commence on Monday 8th September and the full Coaching Programme will be sent out in the next few days.

With that in mind, Melissa’s holding an OPEN AFTERNOON / EVENING on Thursday 4th September from 3 – 8pm and would love to meet as many members as possible and tell them about her future plans. It’s a great chance to ‘say hello’ and sign up for the Autumn Coaching courses, so please try and pop down to the Club (rain or shine) to meet her.If you can’t make it that day, Melissa can be reached on 07837 172478 or email

We are sure all members will give Melissa and her family a great welcome to the Club and we look forward to having her with us for many years to come!
