David Turfrey
Director of DT Tennis Academy
David began his tennis career as a 9 year old boy, winning various county tournaments. David played in both regional and national competitions as well as competing in both Europe and the United States. After playing at a very high level throughout his junior career, David chose to start a career in coaching.

David's passion for helping kids develop into mature tennis players provided him the opportunity to work with many great players and coaches alike. David's hard work and reputation took him all over the world and gave him the chance to develop under some of the most well respected coaches. David worked with the well renowned tennis coach Nick Bollettieri at IMG in Florida. David spent 2 years working with some of the very best juniors in the world, as well as spending many hours on court with players ranked inside the top 100 in ATP/WTA rankings. David built a very strong relationship with Nick which has helped develop performance programs to imitate some of the success that IMG has. David is also an agent for the Sanchez Casal academy in Barcelona. David has a close working relationship with Angel Giminez at Sanchez Casal, often taking performance players over to the academy to get practice on the red clay, as well as getting to watch and train with some of the top professionals that are based there. David's experience and career has earned him many well deserved accolodes, including winning Middlesex coach of the year in 2012. David's time coaching in the UK has seen him build tennis programs from scratch, create a steady stream of nationally ranked players at every every club he has been at and most importantly improve interest and participation in tennis.
