Tennis coach Peter Wessels swaps KNLTB for Dubai

Peter Wessels leaves as a coach at the KNLTB. The former professional tennis player returns to Dubai, where he worked in the past.

The 42-year-old Wessels, the former number 72 in the world, worked as an assistant coach at the KNLTB.

โ€œ Im going back to Dubai with my family because I see a very beautiful and great challenge there,โ€ said Wessels, who is going to work at a new tennis centre in Dubai. โ€œMy wife and I simply miss life in Dubai and that has made us decide to return to the desert.โ€

Among other things, Wessels will be responsible for the training programme of juniors and the contact person for international players who spend their off-season or have a training week there. Wessels was appointed in 2018 by the KNLTB, which opened a national training centre in Amstelveen at the end of last year.
