Coaching Programs – Group Lessons For Adults & Kids 

The best thing about Tennis Canberra coaching programs is our coaches run lesson at venues all around the ACT.  This means the people of the Capital can play with Canberra’s best coaches at a club near you.

Learn new skills, get healthy and meet new friends. Tennis is just one of those games you can play forever.  Join the thousands of Canberrans and join a Tennis Canberra program today.

Looking for an after-work hit?

Adults that want to play after work the best sessions would be at Old Parliament House, Reid Tennis Club, Turner Tennis Club or Barton Tennis Club.  These sessions are the closest tennis venues to the major working hubs of Canberra.

We offer Adult Skills sessions for all levels.  If you have never touched a racquet before or a seasoned athlete I recommend to bring a few friends and enjoy an evening hit!

Our team heads out with our players for a social dinner every couple of weeks so we can relax and enjoy the company of our players and friends.

Living in Gungahlin or Tuggeranong?

Those living in Gungahlin play at Majura Tennis Club (Dickson). This Tennis Canberra Club is Gungahlin’s closest coaching service providers.   Majura Tennis Club offers junior group sessions on Monday, Thursday & Saturday for the North Canberra and Gungahlin region.

In the 1990s & early 2000s Tuggeranong was the powerhouse of tennis in the Capital. With the closure of Tuggeranong Tennis Centre, tennis has been on a steady decline. Until now…  Right in the heart of Tuggeranong, the Active Leisure Centre in Erindale holds junior lessons every Friday!

Does your kids go to any of these schools?

Turner Primary, Telopea Park & North Ainslie Primary have been lucky enough to participate in an after-school walk-to-tennis initiative.  This has helped so many parents and many parents cannot bring their kids to tennis right after school.  At the moment these are the only schools running this program however, with the success of the afternoon walk to the courts our team is looking for more options to get the kids from school to the courts.

The Wanniassa Hills Primary School student only started playing tennis 12 months ago after seeing photos of his grandfather playing and being inspired to get on the court.

“I started playing because of my grandpa. He played tennis and it looked really fun, so I gave it a go,” Turner said.

“When my mum told me I was nominated it was the happiest day of my life. I thought I had won the lottery or something.”

Thanks to our Kiwi Tennis Coach Tom Sizeland

The Tennis Canberra community is extremely lucky to have many coaches and we appreciate both – coaches who work 8 hours a day and coaches that help out when we need them.  Tom Sizeland was inducted into the Tennis Canberra coaching team this year and we were lucky to have him.

From a junior Kiwi tennis player to a recent US College Tennis Graduate, Tom is down in Canberra studying to become a doctor at the Australian National University.  Tom is currently preparing to take on the medical exams for the next 6 weeks, which means that he will not be on court coaching for the rest of 2018.  We do wish him all the best and, hopefully, with these tough exams out of the way he will be back in action in 2019.

We have seen it all and the Australian Open hasn’t even started.  Huge win by our Canberra boy Nick Kyrgios in the Brisbane International.  Ash Barty showed why she considered one of the top women players in the world (even with a two-year break from the sport), and how could forget about the Demon Alex Di Minaur.  What an incredible two week for the youngster making the semis in Brisbane and the final in Sydney.

With a successful Pro Tour in Canberra and upcoming Federation Cup tie also around the corner tennis courts will be filled with new players eager to give tennis a crack.

A word from Robbie Manzano: I’m humbled by the your support, generosity and friendship

First hit for 2015 – What a year it has been!

I have never been so humbled in my entire life. The support my team and I have had over the last couple of years have been overwhelming. Tennis Canberra has not just been an exciting tennis academy growing by the day but a community that is built on support, generosity and friendship. Personally coming to tennis has helped me get through a tough part my life with the Tennis Canberra Family helping our coaches and friends when in need. I’m so proud of every member of our tennis community and I would like to thank each and everyone for the love that you’ve shown us. With Christmas hours away and 2016 around to corner I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Us coaches are taking time off court during the Christmas and New Years break but will be back for our January Summer Session. I have the best team in the world and I know how hard we’ve worked this year – 2016 you better be ready!

2015 – A year of support, generosity and friendship
