Tennis Coaching with Rod
For complete beginners through to people who want to improve their skills…
Have Fun While Learning to Play Tennis
Tennis is a fun and social sport played by people from all walks of life. Many people, however, don’t know all the technicalities involved. Perhaps you are thinking about taking up tennis for the first time, or have been playing for a while and want to improve your skills. If that is the case, Rod can teach you all there is to know about tennis.

Beginners at 12.00 midday and Not so beginners at 1.00pm.
Cost: I do individual and group sessions. $50 per hour but the 6 for 5 deal is very popular.
For 2020 Coaching:
I started coaching in Wellington with Kevin Woolcott where we ran the indoor tennis centre in Evans Bay. I was based at Khandallah squash and tennis club before moving to Tauranga where I have been coaching for the last 20 years.
In 1995 I had a head on car crash and was in an induced coma for nine weeks, which changed my lifestyle. Now I concentrate on coaching adult Night School classes at the Mount Maunganui College and other venues. I also do private coaching for individuals or small groups.
I get great satisfaction and enjoyment coaching people who want to play better tennis and get a buzz out of seeing them improve their skills while having great fun.
This news article, which appeared in the Bay of Plenty Times, describes how I recovered from head injuries to carry on my passion – coaching tennis.
