What do people say about us...

Sandra & David Di Lisio

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.

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.

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.

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 have had an involvement with Vida Tennis for the past eight years, through their association with Milgate PS where they have run Tennis Clinics as part of the Physical Education Program, where I am the coordinator.

Vida Tennis have run programs for our Yr. 1’s, Yr. 2’s, Yr. 3’s, Yr. 4’s, Yr. 5’s & Yr. 6 classes. The Vida Tennis coaches have always been extremely professional and approachable. They are highly skilled, extremely encouraging and have a terrific repour with our students. In recent years we have made a number of changes to our programs and these have included things such as use of low compression balls & smaller racquets for our younger students. These changes have been highly valuable and have allowed many of our students to achieve greater success through the programs Vida Tennis offer at Milgate PS.

I would highly recommend Vida Tennis to run tennis programs within your organisation and I know they would run a highly professional program.
