You are an amazing coach. We are happy to be with you.

Dear Jon. . . . As a tennis teacher, you are very patient and enthusiastic. As a young man, you are very full of vigor and happiness. Thanks for giving my children their wonderful tennis adventure and experience.

Jon’s professionalism is balanced with a fun disposition! He is competent, knowledgeable and skillful whilst also being patient and understanding for all the children’s special needs.

When Matthew was going through a tough time with his team, Jon gave him a very encouraging note. Matthew now has the note as the screen saver on his phone. “Do your best. You matter. Don’t worry what others think.”

Jonathan is really patient with the kids. We, as parents, have a lot to learn.

Hi Jon,
I hope you are well.
I am just passing on some great feedback we have received from Highvale Primary School.
“Jon is an amazing coach. His sessions were engaging and exciting. He spent time with each individual student and modified/extended students according to the skills they demonstrated. We highly recommend his program and expertise.”

Thareen is passionate about the game and has been playing tennis since he was five years old. In 2022 Term 1 he chose Jon’s Tennis Academy for his coaching under Head Coach Jon and has progressed well to where he can now play in competitions.
In 2022 Term 2, he started playing competition in D grade representing the Glen Waverly UC Tennis Club. His team currently sits second on the ladder and hopes to reach the finals this year.
Thareen says that he “enjoys Jon’s coaching techniques and playing under the unique portable battery lights at night”.
