I know exactly what’s required to help players learn and improve their tennis, from beginners to some of Australia’s best juniors.

That’s because I’ve spent 30 years coaching and playing tennis all over the world, at a pretty high level, too.

And I’ve got the results to back it up.

As Club Coach since 2002, my coaching pathway has turned Eaglemont Tennis Club into the most prolific in the Northern Eastern Junior Tennis Association with 20 junior teams participating each week.


I also use a growth-mindset approach to get the best out of my players and my coaching team. We’ve also been used by Tennis Victoria as a best practise case in the way a club and coach partnership can work.


I’ve also learnt that the best way to improve is to keep things simple but challenging – so there’s no complicated, technical jargon which sounds great, but really doesn’t do much to help you win matches. 


So contact me on 0414 373 586 today – and watch out for my slice backhand.

“What a great program the Eaglemont Tennis Club delivered us this year. We have been working with them for over ten years and they continue to improve and progress their programs they run for us. Shane who runs our program as well as his other coaches have all done a magic job! Thanks a lot!”
