My 12 year old son has been having coaching lessons with Swan Hills Vida Tennis coach, David Jonkers since October 2014. John has Aspergers Syndrome & doesn’t like trying or playing many sports.  Since starting with Dave, there has been lots of improvements in John’s strokes. John really enjoys going to his tennis lesson each week, in fact he looks forward to it. Dave jokes with John, seems to understand him, (same strange sense of humour), they get on really well, & Johns tennis is improving each week, which as a parent with a child on the Spectrum, is all we want for our children. We want them to be accepted & to be able to do what comes naturally to other children, & have fun.

Firstly we love that it is all about the kids enjoying what they are doing and not about the parents. Because of this I asked the boys what they thought. They both said “everything” first and then Ben mentioned that he liked learning how to hit a ball properly and Sam said playing matches. David and I love the coaches professionalism and easy going nature and how well you all genuinely relate to the children on their level. We also like that it will hopefully take them to having a great sport to play as adults.

Vida Tennis has offered a new lifestyle to our daughter Elise. Having experienced a shaky, unsettled start to Year Seven, Elise was low in confidence. Since the arrival of the Vida Tennis Coach, Dave Jonkers, Swan Hill has been offered comprehensive tennis coaching & in Elise’s case a pathway of fitness, fun, friendships & continued improvement resulting in increased confidence in her general life.

Elise embraced the squad lessons & individual coaching offered by Vida in Swan Hill. She embarked on a journey of rapid improvement. She has been motivated to play numerous tournaments around Victoria where she was able to gauge the level required to compete adequately. Even after comprehensive losses, she returned to her coach motivated to improve further. After match wins she did the same!

What Elise has acquired in passion! Passion to get fit via training & match play. Passion to meet other players around the State and create new friendships. Passion to improve her game. She sees a pathway to perform at higher levels and now has a real focus in her academic life and future. Elise’s goal is to one day receive a scholarship and study in a U.S College where she hopes to improve her tennis to a level that she can compete on the circuit. As parents, that outcome is not as important as is the goal itself. Whilst she is motivated & happy, we are grateful that she has such a focus & Passion. We are grateful that Vida Tennis has come to Swan Hill.

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.
