James Thow

James is our new Head Coach at Lenzie and we are delighted he is here. Here is what he has to say for himself :>

I have been coaching since 2015, achieving my Level 3 in 2016. I have held the Assistant Head Coach position at Thorn Park, Milngavie and Westerton over the years. I also have experience at David Lloyd West End, Queen’s Park and Bearsden. I started as Head Coach at Bishopbriggs in 2021, and have grown the programme from 0 to around 100 juniors in my time there. 3 out of 4 of the adult teams achieved promotion in the summer leagues last year, and we had to add in another Gents’ team to cope with competitive demand. I am very proud of the growth I have achieved there, and look forward to continuing my work at BTC, in conjunction with my work at Lenzie.

When I don’t have my coaching hat on, I love just playing tennis. Away from work, I have a keen interest in Formula 1, drumming, live music and general fitness.
