Coaching

My name is Nic and I have been involved with tennis since the age of 6. I have recently turned my focus to coaching after a successful junior career; playing both Nationally/Internationally, representing Canterbury and winning three National school titles.

From a young age, I always had a passion for coaching and helping peers around me. With injuries impacting me playing competitive tennis any longer, it made sense for me to become a tennis coach and implement the knowledge I gained from playing into my coaching sessions.

My 'style' of coaching is unique, insightful and forward-thinking. I'm not always looking for results, I am more interested in developing players both tactically and technically for the long-term. I have high expectations for all the players I coach and I think it's important to have a good balance between hard-work, yet also keeping tennis enjoyable. I believe my attention to detail, passion and insight I offer to all players I coach is a huge skill of mine so players can exceed their goals both on and off the court.

I thoroughly enjoy taking players around the country for tournament trips. These trips are predominantly ITF's, Nationals or Regional tournaments. Tournament Trips have a huge benefit for players; they get the opportunity to play different players, play more matches, get 1on1 time with their coach and enjoy competing in a group environment. I really feel these trips are so valuable and great experiences for the players.
