We’re more than just a tennis coaching program. We’re a tennis community.

And recognised by Tennis Victoria for the ability to close the gap between kids starting tennis, and getting good enough to play competitively.

Since 2002 we’ve been able to consistently develop players from a beginner level into club competition. And that includes some of the best junior tennis players in Melbourne.

But we’ve also made Eaglemont Tennis Club a friendly, supportive and encouraging place to play tennis – all the things you really need to become a better tennis player. And that’s what we are most proud of.

That’s the Yarra Tennis difference.

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 2012 Tennis Victoria Club – Coaching Excellence Award and the 2015 TCAV Club Coach of the Year Award.

With over 30 years of coaching and playing experience, I also write a regular tennis blog on topics like developing the growth mindset and improving player confidence  and decision-making ability.

We have built an exceptionally strong connection with Eaglemont Tennis Club (see our club/coach success story ) and it’s why we have 150 juniors playing in the club’s weekly Saturday morning NEJTA junior competition.

Players like 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 or an advanced player looking to improve your tennis, Yarra Tennis have the coaching experience, pathway and club competition.

And that’s the Yarra Tennis difference.

If 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.

And don’t forget to ask me about the ‘point of difference’ in junior tennis, and why you need to develop one.

pennant player of the year“My tennis career began with Shane many years ago when I first started lessons at the age of four. He taught me the art of ball tracking, technique and love of the game. Equally important, throughout the years he has mentored and shown me in example the meaning of sportsmanship. Today I have an Australian Ranking of 168 and I’m fifth in the State of Victoria for my birth year. Coach (Shane) Scrutton is a team mate, coach and mentor. He assists me in technique, tactical knowledge and fuels my love of the game. I would not be the tennis player and person I am today without the on-going support of Coach (Shane) Scrutton.”
