To listen to this week’s episode:

Barry Fulcher grew up in a Tennis Family. His parents and his siblings were avid players, so it was only fitting that Barry start honing his racquet and court skills as a toddler in the UK. His love of the game and of competition led him to a very successful junior tennis career such that he decided to go the professional route. He quickly realized his skills didn’t translate well to the pro tour, so Barry decided to try his hand at coaching while continuing to compete locally.

The Progress Tour was born out of Barry’s frustration at the lack of quality tournaments in and around the UK. He wanted to create a place for players of all levels to come together and satisfy their desire to compete. It has now been over 3 years, and the Progress Tour is growing by leaps and bounds.

While all Progress Tour events are held in the UK, they are open to players around the world. To learn more and to register for upcoming events, click here.
