Club Coach – Vanessa Mairs

Hi, I’m Vanessa and I am the Club Coach here at Upper Moutere Tennis Club.  I have been coaching both junior and senior players in Upper Moutere for over five years and am registered through Tennis New Zealand.

Over the Summer season, I offer a comprehensive coaching programme for juniors which commences in Term 4 and finishes at the end of Term 1.  From as young as 6 years through to teenagers, my sessions cater for all ages and abilities.  Younger players have the opportunity to learn and play on mini courts using smaller modified racquets and over-sized pressure less balls making tennis easy and lots of fun.  Using a combination of technique, games based learning and match play, players get the chance from an early age to experience tennis in an environment suited to their ability.  Hitting on the ball machine provides repetition for learning and is always a ‘hit’ with players of all ages.

Older junior players are well catered for also with more advanced technical coaching and match play.  Inter club options are available for those players who can competently rally through Nelson Bays Tennis Association over the Summer season.

There are various options for adults also with mid-week coaching groups, inter club and Sunday morning social club day.  I offer both group lessons and individual lessons all year round.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Upper Moutere Tennis Club Coach, Vanessa
