Tennis Coaching Staff at Forestville Tennis Centre

Tim has been playing tennis from the day he was old enough to hold a racquet, and has a passion for all levels of the sport, be it playing, coaching or watching, and is committed to ensuring all players develop and reach their full potential in the sport.

Currently in his 20th year of coaching, Tim has worked with players from all levels of the game, from the very beginner to the full time player, and currently works with several junior tournament level players.

Tim believes that tennis is a great sport for people of all ages, not just for the exercise, but for the challenge, the learning of new skills, the experience and the social interaction it provides all players. Tim is dedicated to ensure all students learn something new, enjoy their on-court experiences, and set goals for what they want to achieve from the sport, and in doing so, work hard with each student to meet these goals.

I started playing tennis when I was 5 and as soon as I did my passion for it grew. With a love for the competitive side of the sport I started to participate in my Local tournaments. I believe that tennis is a sport for anyone and is one that can be played throughout life. It is a great sport for anyone looking to give themselves a new challenge as well as have the opportunity to socialise and have fun at the same time. Though tennis I have met some really amazing people and have made many life long friends. As a coach I strive to get the best out of players and to encourage and support them to reach their goals and be the best player that they want to be.
