Are you looking for a club and coaching program that’s one of the most successful in Melbourne?

I’ve played some gruelling tennis matches in Egypt, Brazil, Mexico, Germany, the U.S., and on some pretty obscure tennis courts all over the world.

Lost plenty – but won a few too.

As Club Coach since 2002 I’ve transformed Eaglemont Tennis Club into the leading club in the Northern Eastern Junior Tennis Association with over 20 junior teams. Recognised too by Tennis Victoria for our  club and coach partnership.

My attitude to coaching (read about it here) means every session is about improvement, with plenty of enthusiasm and encouragement (but no bamboozling jargon, guaranteed).

It’s ‘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 (especially when it’s your backhand).

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.

And my backhand’s not bad, either.

Players who play more than once a week, improve dramatically more than those who don’t.

Plus there is a big difference between coaching, and playing competitively where players are required to know how to score, call balls in and out, combine effectively with their partner, and learn how to win and lose (that last point being probably the most important).

And that’s why I’ve added free matchplay sessions into our junior coaching program in 2019 – because tennis is a whole lot more fun and enjoyable when you’re getting better at it.
