“Our son has Learning Disabilities and has been coached by Andy Crockett since 2014. Since that time he has improved significantly resulting in achieving a recent Gold Medal at the Regional LD Tournament and a Gold medal in the mixed doubles at the 2017 Special Olympics in Sheffield. In addition to this, Andy’s enthusiasm in the sport has by association transferred to our son. Andy is a dedicated coach and his passion for the sport shines through. He gives clear direction and instruction and strives to improve our sons’ technical abilities and self esteem.” April 12, 2018
