Welcome to suz4tennis tennis coaching run at the Tahunanui and Wakapuaka Tennis Clubs.

Term 3 is a great time to get ready for the summer season for both young and old. Registration forms have been updated for term 3.

At suz4tennis I am offering a broader approach to fitness. We tend to run around and play sport and then all of a sudden wonder why we are feeling niggles or have to stop playing because of an injury. It is very normal for us to have aches and pains, at any age, but it is how we prevent them from turning into anything serious that is the key.

Stretching and Flexibility are a crucial part of preventing injuries. To give you the best opportunity to excel at your chosen sport, and to stay active, add stretching and flexibility to your training regime.

Contact me to get your own personalised stretching program. Each program includes a one on one session run through and take home details of stretch with photos.

‘Hands down the best thing I’ve done for my tennis!
Suz knows her stuff, and in the short amount of time I’ve been coached, I feel far more confident. Wish I had had coaching years ago,
Tina Vantslot, Owner Elliot Cottage Skin & Beauty
Suzanne is a great coach for all levels and ages. She first started coaching my daughter when Chontelle was 13 – she was gentle and kind when encouragement was needed, and challenged her when a push was required. I have been having lessons myself with Suzanne for 4 years, and had previously never played tennis. She has been infinitely patient and very skilled at teaching not only technique, but also the strategy of the game. I recommended Suzanne to my best friend, also a non-player, who now loves tennis – there is no higher recommendation than that.

Its raining so no tennis, so thought I’d let you know how much I’ve been enjoying your Saturday morning Technique Sessions, and how much my tennis has improved as a result. Seems you CAN teach an old dog new tricks, it just takes a bit longer! A number of folk at Veterans tennis have commented on how much better I’m playing, and I certainly feel more confidant, particularly with my forehand, and am looking forward to the next session, so thanks.
