Social Adult Groups - Beginner, Intermediate & Advance Players - Canberra

Our professional coaching team is built off energy, hard work and passion. We respect everyones lifestyle, goals and aspirations. Most tennis academies have a hierarchy with the Head Coach calling the shots. Initially this is great for the development of coaching principals and teaching methods, however this practice limits the growth of the young coach as it does not empower the individual.

I was the coach that wasn’t able to explore, I stopped learning and my coaching really suffered . The team would go on court for a session then all head home – to do it again the next day.  This is not why I coached and almost gave the game away. Things changed I went out on my own and experienced many coaching environments. Now I want to help others improve and become great people not just tennis coaches.

Our family philosophy is everything at  Tennis Canberra. Our coaches work on projects together and hangout with our players both on and off the court.

I give the challenge to those out there who have a passion for tennis. Whether you want to teach casually or make it a permanent fixture, our tennis family can empower you to reach any coaching or life goals. We have opportunities for those who want to manage a tennis club to those wanting to learn this rewarding trade.

Our experience coaches will act as a mentor plus note any creative ideas you may have. At the end of the day we work as a team to build a tennis community we all can be apart of.

To express interest in a coaching position which is advertised below please email or call 0416 186 121.
