Dips started Warsop Cricket Coaching following a season of playing and coaching cricket in Australia in 2006. Being a British Indian coach, he was asked by Australian children about the conditions in England and India. Over the Australian Christmas holidays he ran a coaching clinic with the idea of teaching and coaching these young players about the conditions around the world. Fast forwards to 2012, during a holiday he discussed the concept with his fiancée who told him to Just Do It!
