Tennis Background :

I have always enjoyed competing in tennis and I was a regular player of super league fixtures in Brisbane, Australia and have been part of competition winning teams.  I have played tennis my whole life and I am a big fan of the game.  I love that tennis is extremely challenging both mentally and physically and is great for hand eye coordination and develops skills which translate to all sports.  I have really enjoyed running tennis coaching sessions for individuals and groups of all ages and varying skill levels from junior, adult and high performance coaching programs. I have also spent many hours running coaching sessions in red, orange and green ball for the Tennis Australia Junior Development Program; focusing on the steady development of the technical and tactical skills of the game.

Working Experience :

I was a tennis coach in Brisbane, Australia where I worked at two of the most prestigious venues, the Roy Emerson Tennis Centre and the University of Queensland Tennis Centre.  I was also a tennis coach at several schools around the Brisbane metropolitan area.  More recently, I have been working at the Australasia Tennis Aces in Hong Kong, coaching at the Hong Kong Football club and the Gold Coast Yacht Club.  I am currently coaching at ESF schools in Hong Kong.  I have also had professional coaching experience in England and Holland.

Tennis Qualifications :

I have completed the Junior Development Coaching qualification with Tennis Australia.  I have also completed a Certificate III in Sports Coaching Qualification from the Australian YMCA Institute of Education and Training.
