At the age of 14 he won the National 14's, 16's and 18's Championships events in Barbados.

Sydney became the National Tennis Champion of Barbados at age 17. In 1983 he was the Tennis Champion in Prince Edward Island, Canada. He then coached in Thouro, Nova Scotia for the next three years.

On his return to Barbados he represented Barbados in the Davis Cup in the years 1992 and 1993 and became Captain for the Barbados team in the Davis cup in 1995.

Since 2001 some of Barbados' top players have been exclusively coached by Sydney – most notably Darian King who, as of February 2013, was ranked number 47 in the World Junior Ranking of the International Tennis Federation and is number 484 in the world in the ATP World Tour.

Sydney maintains his grip on the tennis scene by participating in International Tennis Federation coaching seminars and he also attends the United States Tennis Association (USTA) seminars and tournaments, including Wimbledon.
