Under the guidance of Shane Scrutton, one of the few coaches in Australia with international playing and coaching credentials (and the winner of both the TCAV Coach of the Year Award and the Tennis Victoria Club Coaching Excellence Award), Yarra Tennis Coaching has an outstanding record in developing junior players.
The success of Yarra Tennis Coaching is demonstrated by the program’s contribution to Eaglemont Tennis Club, the strongest Junior Club in the NEJTA over the past 10 years with over 150 juniors competing each week.
Standout juniors include Pizzey Cup Stars Tom Ciszewski and Jemma Carbis (the youngest female member of the 2017 Victorian Pizzey Cup team), Junior Pennant Player of the Year Alex Scrutton, and many juniors across various age groups.
Yarra Tennis Coaching has also made a significant contribution to grassroots tennis and sport in the local community, with free clinics to a number of schools and kindergartens in the area, participation in the Sporting Schools program, and programs at Banyule PS, Kew High School, Alphington Grammar School, East Ivanhoe PS and Mother of God PS.
Yarra Tennis Coaching operates at picturesque Eaglemont Tennis Club, located on the corner of Burke Road North and The Boulevard in East Ivanhoe with ten excellent quality clay/synthetic clay tennis courts.
