TOM DUDLEY is now best known as the U13 National performance coach, but back in the day was himself quite a player. Winner of three junior national titles, five junior European titles and for two years running the U19 French Open Men’s doubles title, Tom has experience of competition at the highest level. He played in Japan, Indonesia and all over Europe before his promising career was cut short by injury.
Now, with over ten years coaching experience, Tom is one of England's most highly regarded coaches. Level 3 qualified, Tom is part of the new Level 3 development team – implementing the programme to train other Level 3 coaches. When he’s not tutoring for Badminton England, Tom can be found training the U13 national squad – the next generation of England players. He's also Assistant Coach to NBL Team, the Surrey Smashers. Closer to home, he coaches the Dorset County senior team, and trains a number of the top players in the area.
