Major Summer Announcements

2 weeks ago By Stephen Tabb

The Club is delighted to make some big announcements about the development of its playing and coaching structure for both adults and seniors.

“We are really excited about the new coaches and players we are welcoming to the Club. We hope they will continue to help move the club forwards both at Junior and Senior level.” Stephen Tabb, Chairman - OSHC

The club has been very busy over the Summer months, and has been able to secure some fabulous new additions to its coaching and playing members.

Chris Roberts - current England Men's Over 55s Coach - is joining the club to lead the Men's Section coaching, and also support the older junior players as they transition into our adult section. Chris has played and coached at National League level, as well as being a Performance Centre coach, and is currently in Spain helping the England Men reach the final stages of the Masters World Cup.

Steve Tabb - the club Chairman is returning to coach the Ladies section, having spent the last 4 years with Leamington Ladies - helping their 2nd and 3rd teams to their highest ever league finishes.

Taff Ahmed - Taff is joining the Tuesday night coaching team to support the Club Coaching, and the Ladies section. Taff has many years experience, plus is the current Team Liaison Officer for the England Ladies.

Etienne Blatt - returns for his third year, he will again be playing for the M1, plus coaching on Sunday with the juniors, as well as in local school.

Sophie Boyle, Caro Kappes and Ursula Santos - all three players are joining the club from overseas. Sophie from Australia, Caro from Chile and Ursula from Brazil. Caro and Ursula have both played Internationally for their Countries (Ursula is joining us straight from the World Series), whilst Sophie has played at the top level in Australia. All three will be playing L1, plus coaching on Sunday mornings at the club.

We are also delighted to be able to offer more coaching in schools, plus also a Friday evening "Academy" session for our talented 12-16 year olds, running from 5.30pm-7.00pm at Solihull School - if you want more info, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
