beachside Tennis academy coaching program
Beachside Tennis Academy operates out of the Warrnambool Lawn Tennis Club on Pertobe Road. Beachside's coaching program runs all year round with access to 3 different court surfaces (Grass, Hard and Clay). Our Coaching program caters for all ages and abilities, with a clear and specific pathway from beginner to elite.
ANZ Tennis Hot Shots is specially designed for kids. Smaller courts, racquets and softer tennis balls equals:
Players are actively engaged, excited and motivated to participate.
Players build social skills such as working cooperatively with a partner building friendships, encouraging teammates and showing sportsmanship during game play.
Players think and make decisions about meaningful tennis situations.
Players have plenty of opportunities to improve their tennis skills
