Joanna Donnelly

Joanna joined the Argyle coaching team as a highly respected player and coach.

As a County and Regional Junior player, Joanna made a natural transition into Tennis Coaching.

Her work and enthusiasm at Argyle Tennis Club has brought many accolades, including being highly commended as the Sports Coach of the year at the Sefton Sports Awards in 2012. No mean feat in being recognised across all sports.

It is no coincidence, that with Joanna’s experience, Argyle has seen a high proportion of female players commence their tennis journey at the club, where other clubs have struggled to attract female players.
