Our coaching programme at Orakei Tennis Club is one of the most progressive in the country. We can cater for all ages and abilities, from 3 years old ‘Tots’ up to seasoned club players and national performance players. Our programme allows our players to fit into the correct group based on ability, whilst it also maintains the flexibility to move players through the various levels as and when they begin to progress. We are also Tennis New Zealand Hot Shots coaches, so for the younger players we make sure that they are playing with the correct sized racquets, balls and nets.
