Where do I find a tennis coaching program that makes it easy (and fun) to learn tennis?

You need a couple of things to become a top tennis player. Expert coaching to develop your game, and competition at the right level to challenge your game.

And, as a coach, you’ve got to keep it fun.

I’ve spent 30 years of playing and coaching tennis all over the world. As the Head Coach since 2002, I’ve developed a pathway that has turned Eaglemont Tennis Club into one of the strongest tennis clubs in Melbourne.

Tennis Victoria have also recognised this pathway – in fact they consider us best practise in the way a club and coach partnership can work.

Like to learn more? Contact me on 0414 373 586 to see what our pathway can do for your tennis.

It’ll be fun too.
