Assistant Talent Development Coach at Tennis West 2012-14
WA State Team Representative
Cottesloe Men’s Division 1 player

What do you enjoy most about coaching?
There are many things I enjoy about coaching but the most rewarding would have to be watching the joy and sense of achievement a player gets when they have been taught a new skill and successfully execute it in a match environment. Also, seeing kids who come down to the club once a week for a lesson become completely immersed in the sport and end up at the club every afternoon after school. In a participation sense, there is no better feeling as a coach.

Why should people come to Tennis Approach?
I have spent most of my coaching career working to establish and provide a coaching business that is unmatched in Western Australia, not only producing elite junior players but also offering a pathway for all children and adults to achieve their tennis goals.
In my 28 years of coaching, I can confirm no two players are the same. Everybody wants something different out of tennis, and Tennis Approach is here to help each player reach his or her individual goal.

Adam Kehane - Perth Tennis Coach

Adam Kehane

Nationally ranked player
Cottesloe Men’s Division 1 player

What do you enjoy most about coaching?
It's fantastic to see kids developing from the red ball stage of ANZ Hot Shots and gaining the confidence to play pennants for their club. I also love seeing kids enjoying themselves in training and wanting to improve their game.

Ruby Culley - Perth Tennis Coach

Ruby Culley

Nationally ranked player
3 x WA State Team Representative
Cottesloe Women’s State League player

What do you enjoy most about coaching?
I love teaching the fundamentals of the game of tennis. I also love seeing kids progress and gain confidence on the court after a few terms of coaching, especially the young girls. Tennis is a sport for life so I know what I teach kids now will be useful at some point in their lives, whether it's competitive play, social play or a casual hit with family and friends.

Tennis Australia Qualified Coach Member
LTA Level 3 Coach (UK)
BSc(Hons) Sport and Exercise Science

What do you enjoy most about coaching?
Having worked with players of all levels and ages both in the UK and here in Australia, I have a real passion for developing tournament level players who are looking to take their tennis to a higher level than most.
Having said that, being on a court with any player or group that shows a keen interest in developing their skills, regardless of level and age, is great to be a part of and very rewarding for me as a coach.

Joseph Parfitt

Tennis Australia Club Professional Coach

10 years' coaching experience
Tennis Australia Qualified Coach Member
Represented Cottesloe’s Men’s State League team

What do you enjoy most about coaching?
What I enjoy most about coaching is seeing kids develop from the red ball stage in ANZ Tennis Hot Shots to the standard yellow ball, and competing for their club in a competitive environment, whether it be weekend pennants or tournaments. I also like teaching adults the technical, tactical and physical elements of the game so they have the confidence to play socially at the club and become regular players.

David (Alpa) Myers

Junior Club Director

20 years' coaching experience

What do you enjoy most about coaching?
I like seeing the children put what they have learnt in training into a competitive match - that is the real gauge of a child's improvement. I also enjoy identifying areas of improvement in a child's game and giving feedback to instantly improve their game.
