Tennis has taught me how to be disciplined, resilient, mentally strong, and an active listener. Most importantly, tennis has repeatedly proven to me that you should never give up no matter the circumstances. It taught me that you will eventually see a return if you work hard. The tennis atmosphere, and the people you meet along the way it’s something that I will never forget. This sport built who I am and everything that I am today.

Previous Tennis Coach for Tennis Cove, Killara Lawn Tennis Club, Pymble Ladies College and Love and Deuce

What I love about Tennis?
Tennis has been a part of life from a very young age. Over the years I have come to realise the difficulty it takes to master the game of tennis. The combination of requiring a high level of strength, speed, endurance, hand-eye coordination and footwork means that you one can pick up and learn how to play other sports at a higher level quicker. Another thing that makes Tennis great is the diversity of the game. Tennis is played all over the world and there is more than one way of winning the game. It can be won through sheer power, or it can be won through determination and a never say die attitude, or even won on intelligence as well as calm and rational thinking as well as pure emotion.

What I love about Tennis?
The thing I love most in teaching tennis is the expression of happiness on the athlete’s face when they manage to learn a new shot or when they manage to modify a technical error. I think there is nothing more satisfying. Then add that all this is done in the open air, under the sun, what could be better. Tennis is freedom.

What you love about Tennis? 
What I love about tennis is the unique blend of competition and sportsmanship, where every match begins with the inclusive spirit of ‘love all.’ A blend of mental and physical challenges you need to overcome in this sport builds great discipline and character. A sport which can be played professionally and recreationally, makes it life long and a life skill too. Most relationships built on a tennis court last for a long time and some for a life time.
