So 18 years ago today I took for first pupil for a Private Tennis Lesson. Weeks later I started ATA and learnt a lot about hard work, sacrifice, learning and time management.

We’ve been all over Australia with tours and also hit up Indonesia and the USA. We’ve spent countless nights away from home and on the road. We’ve had lots of 5am starts, cold coffees and been up till midnight restringing and doing admin several days a week.

And we are still going strong.

A big thanks to all our clients, sponsors and coaches who have been a huge part of ATA’s success over the years.

Although the last 2 years I’m not on court as many hours as I have been, I’m still organising 100s of hours of tennis lessons in schools and clubs and ATA is in very good hands moving forward with our Head Coach Vincent Brochard and our team as we continue to provide quality, professional tennis programs through the region.
