In a meeting yesterday with TCO Director, Thomas Hjorth Nyholm, Head Coach Bill Eastburn will step down as the Head Coach of Tennis Club Odense.

The news will be received with much grief by our coaching team, as well as many players and families alike at TCO.  The politics around and the expected financial figures following the new 6 court indoor facility in Odense  didn’t develop as forecasted which now leads to an organizational adjustment per September. 

Denmark’s first and only GPTCA Level A Coach at present, Bill Eastburn has decided that it is simply not economically or professionally possible at this time to continue in his present role as the Head Coach of TCO.  The decision by both Bill Eastburn and TCO is one come to purely out of economic and financial reasons.  Both parties are of course very disappointed.  

He will continue in his present role through September 1st, in efforts to manage a smooth transition of responsibilities to his capable and well-trained young coaching team – a team hired, trained and mentored by Bill during his two years at TCO.

Tennis Club Odense would like to wish our Head Coach all the best in his future endeavors.  We feel privileged to have had an international coach of his stature help educate our young players and coaches.
