A message from our happy members

 

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.

My whole family has been involved with Vida Tennis in Swan Hill for over 18 months now. Since joining, my young boys have been really improving and enjoying their tennis lessons and it’s been great to see them putting their new skills to the test in local competitions. Our teenage boy’s confidence and skills have improved so much that it has allowed him to be able to join the adult pennant competition, and play tournaments. His group lessons and his one on one coaching has seen great results. I myself as an adult have been taking some lessons too and I can’t believe the difference that it’s made to my game and my fitness.

We all love Vida Tennis coaching which is run in a very professional and family friendly environment, with the full support of the Swan Hill Lawn Tennis Club.

Get involved, you won’t regret it!

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.
