Coaching is knowing what to say at the right time- not saying too little, and definitely not saying too much. It's about looking at a player and knowing where they are, but also where they want to get to.
Making subtle adjustments in technique, footwork and attitude that make a dramatic difference.
So if you're thinking of starting, or would like to play at one of the best-kept secret places to play tennis in Melbourne (that's Eaglemont Tennis Club) then let me know.
I'll give you 100% independent advice from 30 years as a coach and someone who's played tennis all over the world.
After all, it's the best sport to play - whether you're 3, or 83.
When it comes to technique, don't overdo it. The best tennis players have technique that's simple, effective and DOESN'T FALL APART UNDER PRESSURE.
So aim for the same.
Tennis coaching doesn't have to be terribly complicated or filled with jargon either - in most cases I end up removing or subtracting something from a player's swing, not adding to it.
