Nicky Howell, one of the top players in the world today, will be joining Jeu de Paume de Bordeaux as head professional in mid-September, carrying on the effective work of Chris Ronaldson's team since the opening on 29 June 2020. Nicky is making a bold move by taking up the big challenge of rebuilding memberships and giving Bordeaux back the local and international aura it once had when the same Ronaldson and another Howell were down there. Bordeaux, the city in which he was born, is honoured and delighted to receive Nicky.
