World-class facilities, beautiful surroundings and a friendly atmosphere. There are many great reasons why St. George’s Hill Lawn Tennis Club is one of the leading Weybridge health clubs.
One of the things that sets us apart is our people. The fun, professionalism and passion they bring to the Club every day are integral to our success.
So, we thought it was time you got to know the team a little better.
Maria Kimber Crane, Swim Coach and Co-ordinator
I have loved swimming since I was 3 years old and went on to compete at County level against eventual Olympic medallists.
After a career at a blue-chip firm, I studied NVQ qualifications to work at the local nursery when my children were young. From there it was a natural step to combine the joy of teaching with my passion for swimming.
The Swim Team support all members and their families at the Club no matter their competence in the water. After an initial assessment in the pool, we are able to tailor swim programmes, from beginner to advanced, to suit you individually or as part of a class.
To see children and adults getting enjoyment from the water is always a huge achievement. But it’s seeing my special little swimmers flourish in the pool and develop that is one of the most rewarding aspects of my role.
David Collins, Head Tennis Professional
Over the 20 years that I have coached at the Club, I have seen so many members develop their love of tennis. To see this passion for the game grow in such a beautiful environment is one of the things that makes the Club such a special place.
Like many of the coaching team, I am a former professional tennis player. We are on hand to support members with anything tennis and coaching related, from coaching team tennis to working individually with adults and juniors.
We always take the time to meet every new member on court for an induction. We want to be known as the Weybridge tennis club that gives everyone a friendly welcome.
If anyone is interested in getting into tennis or wants to improve their skills and thinks: “Is there a tennis club near me?”. I’d say come to St. George’s Hill Lawn Tennis Club. The place and people make it one of the most inspiring venues to enjoy the game.
Charis Scott, Food, Beverage & Events Manager
I have worked in the food, beverage and events industry since 2006. It has given me the perfect background to manage the dining and restaurant options at the Club.
I oversee the Lake Room Restaurant & Club Room, the tennis pavilion, and the events department. Our team work hard to ensure that the restaurants are providing excellent service to members and requests for meetings, parties or dining are delivered to meet expectations.
Working with such a diverse range of people is one of the biggest things I enjoy about my role. Our team are incredibly good at their own profession and are willing to develop and help everywhere.
There really is nowhere in the world quite like St. George’s Hill Lawn Tennis Club. The friendly, family atmosphere makes the Club feel much more than just a health and tennis club – for many members it is truly a home away from home.
Mark Amos , General Manager
I’m responsible for leading the heads of department, supporting Miles Hill, our CEO, and overseeing the running and development of the Club.
Above all, I see my role as member facing. I want members and guests to feel looked after and listened to. The team and I are driven by a desire to make a difference to each person’s visit to the Club.
My family have always had a love of sport and fitness and I competed at a fairly high level at swimming. I followed a career in health and fitness that took me from a qualified fitness instructor to managing regional operations for some of the UK’s leading health clubs.
Having been fortunate enough to have worked with St. George’s Hill Lawn Tennis Club since 2012, I can honestly say that there is no health or tennis club quite as prestigious as St Georges Hill Lawn Tennis Club.
The Club is special. I want to bring my experience, personality, energy and ‘can do attitude’ to make the Club a place where people can be the best versions of themselves and have fun along the way.
