So, what should you look for when starting tennis? 

And how do you know what tennis club will be the best fit?

Well to start with, I’ve played some gruelling matches in Egypt, Brazil, Mexico, Germany, the U.S., and on some OBSCURE TENNIS COURTS all over the world.


Lost plenty – but won a few too.


Since 2002, Yarra Tennis Coaching has transformed Eaglemont Tennis Club into the leading club in the Northern Eastern Junior Tennis Association with over 20 junior teams. It’s a relationship that’s been recognised by Tennis Victoria as best practise for a club and coach partnership.


My growth mindset approach (an approach to learning you’ll find here) means every coaching or matchplay session is about improvement, heaps of enthusiasm and encouragement, and fun (with no bamboozling jargon, guaranteed).


It’s a bit of ‘I don’t care what you can’t do, just show me what you can do.’ AND LET’S GET TO WORK ON THAT. Because tennis is a lot more fun when you’re getting better – and that’s what we work towards.


So you’re interested in learning more, or want a free assessment on your game, or like to join one of the fastest-growing tennis clubs in Melbourne, call me today on 0414 373 586.
