What do people say about us...

Kirkpatrick Family

Our family has been with Vida Tennis West (Altona) for 6 years, we have found Mark and his team to be professional, friendly and engaging. Along side excellent tuition in all facets of the tennis game, they have provided opportunities to make new friendships and foster a love of tennis for all generations. Mark is an exceptional coach who has a natural ability when communicating with children, and manages to teach them life lessons whilst providing a solid platform from which to build their tennis game. Lessons take place in a relaxed atmosphere where the Vida Coaching Staff are all approachable, knowledgeable and eager. Our children have always looked forward to their tennis lessons, and have benefited enormously from their involvement with Vida Tennis West. We hope to continue this association for many years to come and would recommend them highly to anyone wishing to participate in tennis lessons.

Former Vida players share their College Tennis Experience

Eilis Kruger

I’ve recently starting training at Vida Tennis Essendon for both private and squad lessons. Ryan and the rest of the coaches have made a huge different to my tennis. I’ve improved a lot over the last few months and know that they will help me reach my tennis goals. Their squad lessons are always fun and I always do a lot of different hitting drills which improves my game in all areas. The private lessons I have with Ryan, Katie and Chris are always full of technical advice and I know they all want to see me improve. It’s always a fun and welcoming environment at coaching and around the club. I always look forward to the nights I have tennis.

Bendigo Tennis Academy

I have had a connection with Kane Dewhurst as he attended the Bendigo Junior Tennis Squad as a junior member. It was with great interest when Kane had completed his time on the circuit and decided to become a professional tennis coach I did not hesitate in approaching Kane to visit Bendigo to conduct tennis clinics. That was back in 2003. We have tennis clinics in Bendigo every year, our next being on August 18th in Bendigo. I have also taken a team of 14 players for a one week training camp at Vida which was a brilliant week of tennis. 

The reason I invited Kane to Bendigo was to draw on his expertise from the circuit and to update the knowledge and work ethic of players involved in my tennis coaching program at the Bendigo Tennis Academy.This approach, in my opinion has been a remarkable success.

Kane and Vince Dattoli are leaders in the coaching of tennis, they are keen to share their coaching philosophies and my link with Vida has seen many players link up with Kane and Vince as regular clients.

The most notable has been Eliza Long a student from our the Bendigo Tennis Academy, I encouraged her to link up with Kane and the Vida Team this has seen Eliza become an 16’s National Champion, and play in two Australian Open Junior events at Melbourne Park.

From a coaching perspective Kane, Vince and the Vida team are always there to assist in the development of players, they are always supportive of my coaching program and encourage players I coach to continue in my program, as they progress through the Vida Program. I always appreciate that as a coach.

I am writing this letter of recommendation on Vida Tennis. They have been working with St Kevin’s College for over 5 years and we have noticed a large increase in both participation levels and the quality of player we are producing.

We work very closely with Kane Dewhurst who is our Director of Coaching. He coaches our First Team along with working with our Year 7,8 and 9 A Teams. Kane has a been able to influence our boys tennis both on the court with ability and also through the way our boys conduct themselves around the sport of tennis.

We have implemented a very successful development programme in which Kane, Angelo & Ryan (other Vida Team members) run. Our boys from this squad are now flourishing with enthusiasm for tennis but also for success. Most of these boys will play First Tennis is the next few years as a result of this programme.

Our boys development was demonstrated by our win in the A.P.S Tennis Premiership in 2011. This was the first time in 16 years that the school has won this title. Tennis across all years levels have achieved consistent great results, participation and good sportsmanship. I can only highly recommend Vida Tennis to you.
