I offer 100% independent, coaching expertise from 30 years coaching hundreds, if not thousands, of tennis players.

Without any gimmicks.

 

So if you've never picked up a racquet before, or just want to get some fitness and confidence back, or are wanting your kids to learn, I can help.

At one of the best venues in Melbourne (Eaglemont Tennis Club).

Why Yarra Tennis?

If there's one thing I've learnt after 30 years of coaching tennis, it's this.

Just focus on who you are coaching and what they need to work on.

No two tennis players are the same - and no two players need to get coached in exactly the same way.

That's why you need to ask questions and put yourself in the position of someone who has never picked up a racquet before. When you do that you'll realise that it's not just about hitting a ball - it's about confidence and building on those incremental improvements.

Yarra Tennis Testimonials

"What a great program the Eaglemont Tennis Club delivered us this year. We have been working with them for over ten years and they continue to improve and progress their programs they run for us. Shane who runs our program as well as his other coaches have all done a magic job!"

"Shane is, in my opinion, a better tennis coach than anyone else that I’ve met."

"Shane Scrutton is a team mate, coach and mentor.  He assists me in technique, tactical knowledge and fuels my love of the game.  I would not be the tennis player and person I am today without the on-going support of Coach Scrutton."

Tennis Coaching Pathway

What exactly does a tennis coaching pathway mean?

 

In my experience it means being able to provide the right kind of playing experiences for players who are at different levels.

'I don't care what you can't do -
let's start with what you can do'

'Shane is the best tennis coach

I've ever met'

Colin Carbis

My name is Shane Scrutton and my mission is to cut through the bamboozling technical jargon.

That's right - the crap. Because there's a lot out there that'll sound impressive indeed, but won't actually make you a better tennis player.

 

How about simple, effective instruction to improve your game - whatever your age, whatever your ability level?

Stay low, keep the ball deep, run down every shot like your life depends on it and then learn to put some work on it.

That's why I'm about (and my team).

For all those coaches out there who think they can get their fancy teaching aids out to try and impress the heck out of everyone, well get down the other end and let's see what you can do.
