Krishna's Background:

Since learning to play tennis at the nearby public courts in Clapham Common Westside from the age eight, when he descended on theses cosmopolitan shores of London from Sri Lanka, Krishna has had and continues to have a passionate participating interest in tennis, especially with pleasure.

Apart from the tennis highlights shown above in LineBallTennis - Clapham's principal Krishna, he nowadays also actively participates in for humanitarian / civil causes, in particular protesting for ideals beheld by his mentor in this respect Dame Vivienne Westwood, as espoused by her activists website www.climaterevolution.co.uk

Until the financial crisis of 2007-08 Krishna had a business-cycle led career in investment banking; as researcher in institutional investments funds arena. He is still engaged in private self-enterprising work in financial investments, writing investment proposals and developing new models of compliance. He feels this worl complements his tennis coaching activities, in much the same way as marketing and broking equities with regards to the all-important client relationship aspect.

His many other interest and hobbies included managing a local mixed-ability football team Sporting Tooting FC. A football team which was in the ‘Grafton and West London Millennium League’ until the team's controversial expulsion! In Season 2010/11 ‘Saints’ finished second in the GWLML League and runner-up in the Cup competition. Sporting Tooting is sponsored by the rain-forest protection charity ‘CoolEarth’ backed by his friend Dame Vivienne Westwood.
