Before joining Tennis NZ, first as National coach and now as Tennis NZ HP Director, Christophe Lambert had years of experience working on the professional tennis tour.  Lambert who is from France, was previously Tennis NZ’s national coach and before that he worked for Tennis Canada, where he helped bring through US Open champion Bianca Andreescu. He has also worked with Andy Murray for Britain’s LTA and the Chinese Davis Cup team.  He was also President of his own local club back when he was 18 years young. 

Tennis is a passion for Christophe and is not limited to only the High Performance space.  Through his previous experience in France and Canada, he believes it is possible to develop top class programs in local clubs and develop juniors locally before needing to significantly travel nationally.
