Euan Bell: University of St Andrews Tennis Coordinator


This year the tennis club is fortunate enough to have a tennis coordinator to assist Mike and the committee. Read on to find out more about Euan Bell.


Euan will play a key role in providing more tennis opportunities (competitive and voluntary) for university students and will also form part of the coaching team at the University of St. Andrews for staff and students.


Currently, Euan’s coaching is primarily divided between Falkland Tennis Club and Richmond Sport where he coaches both juniors and adults on a weekly basis. In addition, he coaches Falkland men’s 1st team, organises additional match play opportunities as well as pre season training.


Euan is the men’s 1st team captain for Falkland – currently represented in division 2 of the Tayside Tennis Leagues. As a junior, he was coached by Mike Aitken and represented Falkland in the Junior Super League. Euan has worked in partnership with Active Schools for 8 years where he has developed sustainable school club links with Falkland Tennis Club which has increased participation and the club’s junior section membership. This has been achieved through the regular delivery of school tennis festivals, taster sessions and extra curricular activities.


Euan attained an honours degree in Sports Development that covered key areas in sports performance such as motor control and skill acquisition, the coaching process, sports psychology and performer improvement and development. He continues to develop his knowledge in these areas. As such, he forms part of the Disability Sport Fife team delivering weekly indoor multi sport sessions including tennis.
