Testimonial

Karen begun coaching me at the beginning of 2011, in which I was at a time where not only my game needed improvement but also my physique. I’ve never had much height on my side but fitness needed to be a lot better. Yes, since then it has been tough working with Karen but I couldn’t thank her enough for how she turned my game around and taught me first-class habits to keep my fitness up to the standard it needed to be to compete with the high quality competition I have to face. In these years that I have worked with Karen I have received results that are that much better than I have received ever before. Prior to being coached by Karen my ranking was way outside the top 1000 and today I can proudly say that my ranking has gone up immensely and it is currently at 306 (highest its ever been). Not only is Karen a great person to have for tennis related issues she assists me with many off court issues in which I need a hand on. It would be unfair to Karen if I could only call my tennis coach she is a lot more than that and she is someone that I can look up to not only as a tennis coach but also as a person.    

Testimonial

 

Karen started coaching me 3 years ago. In that time my ranking has risen from 630 to 254. Karen has always been there to support me with constant positive encouragement, attends tournaments, provides feedback and advice on my matches. I believe Karen is not only a fantastic coach but is a great role model and mentor for her coaching students and has always taught me to believe in myself and is guiding  me to reach my dream as a professional tennis player.

Testimonial

"As a tennis coach Karen has helped me improve my tennis drastically. I first met Karen during Waverley squad when I was 10 years old and she has taken a keen interest in me to help me further better my tennis. Karen is an amazing coach, she always has a lesson plan so she is organized and is very encouraging and positive. I have been getting coached by her since I was 11 and have loved it ever since. Every time I step onto the court with Karen I know it is going to be fun and I am going to learn new things. Of what I have seen, Karen takes an interest in all her students and wants to further better all there tennis abilities. I highly recommend Ultimate Tennis to any people looking to get tennis lessons because Karen really helps to improve your tennis and always makes lessons fun and enjoyable to make sure you have the best time possible.

Testimonial

 "As a tennis coach Karen has helped me in more ways than one both on and off the court. She has always encouraged me to do what I love, has always been positive and enthusiastic every time we step out on the court and has been one of the most supportive coaches I have worked with. She genuinely cares for all her athletes so that they can be the best they can be. Working with Karen and Ultimate Tennis has definitely improved my tennis and has guided me to where I am today".
