What's The Yarra Tennis Difference?

Looking for a coaching program with a proven pathway and commitment to junior tennis?

Or a coaching program that has been successful where other programs have not. And that’s being able to consistently develop players from a beginner level into club competition, into keeping players at the one club where they can develop their tennis in a progressive way – right up to the elite level.

Since 2002, I’ve been the Coaching Director and Head Coach of Yarra Tennis Coaching. My team’s coaching programs have won both the inaugural Tennis Victoria Club – Coaching Excellence Award in 2012 and the 2015 TCAV Club Coach of the Year Award. With over 20 years of coaching and playing experience, I also enjoy writing regular tennis articles which hopefully can help your game too.


We have built an exceptionally strong connection with Eaglemont Tennis Club (see our club/coach success story) which provides playing opportunities for all ages and abilities. This includes over 150 juniors playing in the club’s weekly Saturday morning NEJTA junior competition and 9 Tennis Victoria pennant teams.


Our coaching team have 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, and participation in the Sporting Schools program. We have been particularly successful at transitioning juniors from our coaching program into club competition through encouragement and communication with parents. Again, this is the Yarra Tennis difference.


Exceptional juniors including Tom Ciszewski, Jemma Carbis and Alex Scrutton have followed our pathway to become some of the top juniors in the state. So whether you’re a beginner looking to improve your skills or a player looking for a high performance environment, we have the track record to do just that.


And that’s the Yarra Tennis difference. So you’d like to join any of our programs or would like a free session with me or one of my coaching team,  then call me on 0414 373 586 today. I’m confident we can help your game – just watch out for my dropshot!
