Nick has been involved with sport all his life and comes from a table tennis background, both as a player and coach. A current level 3 UKCC qualified Table Tennis England licensed coach, he is currently the Head Coach for the Table Tennis Academy at SGS College, along side a sports development role whilst also a tutor and assessor for Table Tennis England.
His eldest son has recently taken an interest in triathlon whilst his other son is on the England pathway with table tennis.
Having been the chair of several successful clubs and programmes, he has developed various sports from a grass roots background and is able to see a number of professional clubs operate through his work. Nick has now taken up the challenge to help Tri Glos. Youth develop to become a thriving, enjoyable and successful club.
I’ve completed a few triathlons and marathons in my time, and I can usually be found at Cheltenham Parkrun on a Saturday morning. My involvement with Triathlon is now focused primarily on supporting youth development in the sport. I am passionate about helping to get kids active and having fun with sport, no matter their background, experience or skills.
I am the primary contact for membership inquiries and session bookings, so if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Head Coach - Level 2 Triathlon Coach
Tim is a level 2 BTF triathlon coach with over 25 years of experience in the sport, and 15 years of coaching experience for both adults and children. Tim has completed 3 Ironman triathlons – with a best time of 10:30! Tim has represented GB in the Age Group Championships and is ranked 22 in the world and 8th in GB.
Level 2 Swim Coach
I was a competitive swimmer for many years, swimming at club, county, nationals and then masters, and also competed as an adult at running and aquathlons, winning or gaining top 5 placing in several aquathlons, trail runs and half marathons so I know what it feels like to push yourself! But what I really love is teaching and coaching! I love encouraging and helping young people and watching them grow in ability and self-belief (day job: secondary science teacher!). I have been teaching and coaching swimming for 35 years, from beginners to county and regional swimmers, and now co-run a swim school with my sister as well as coaching at TTGYT. Before I returned to Gloucester I was head coach at Mid-Ulster Swimming Club (who moved up 3 divisions in 3 years!) then junior squad head coach at Dawlish SC. Our sessions are productive but just as importantly FUN with a real team atmosphere.
level 2 Triathlon Coach
I got into triathlon around 10 years ago, placing top 5 female at some local sprint and Olympic distance races. Completing long distance charity bike rides including London to Paris and London to Berlin then increased my love of cycling and led me to ride and race with local club Velo Vitesse. Missing swimming, a couple of years ago I joined TTG to train towards a half Ironman. With a baby due in April, I switched my focus from my own training to building experience in triathlon coaching.
Coaching with both the adult and youth clubs has been fantastic experience towards my BTF level 1 & 2 qualifications. It’s brilliant to watch young triathletes build a love of sport and develop skills to keep for life.
