I started Yarra Tennis Coaching in 2002 at Eaglemont Tennis Club, and in that time I've combined my teaching experience and professional playing ability to make tennis coaching my profession.
I am proud to have been the winner of the Tennis Victoria Club Coaching Excellence Award (2012) and the TCAV Club Coach of the Year award (2015), as well as having represented Australia in the 2019 World ITF seniors teams tournament.
My goal is to teach the skills of the game in a simple, uncomplicated way that helps players improve and develop confidence.
As the Head Coach I also enjoy the satisfaction of helping coaches improve their teaching ability through experimenting with different learning techniques.
It's what makes tennis fun - and you can always get that little bit better.
“My tennis career began with Shane many years ago when I first started lessons at the age of four. He taught me the art of ball tracking, technique and love of the game.
Equally important, throughout the years he has mentored and shown me in example the meaning of sportsmanship."
