Andrew McLean

I completed HSC/VCE at Haileybury College Keysborough in 1986 and was the number 1 player not only there but for the APS. I played the professional circuit internationally for 6 years after playing College tennis for Wichita State in the number 1 position in the USA. I played 5 years of Club Tennis in Germany. I played maindraw twice at the Australian Open and won Furtures singles and doubles tournaments (including the Doubles at the Hyatt on Collins Dingley Future with past member Andrew Florent) I played State Grade for Dingley at the Number 1 position in 4 premierships for the Club from 1993-1996. I was tennis Victoria Player of the Year 3 times during this period and was 60-2 in Singles over that time and 59-1 in Doubles. I played State Grade Number 1 for 20 seasons. I won over 30 of the now called AMT tournaments during the time I stopped playing the circuit. I have coached 2 pupils who have won Australian National Championship as well as having coached an Australian Open Junior Champion. I have coached and travelled with 2 players who have won rounds in Maindraw Singles at Majors. My real passion is coaching kids and adults and instilling a real passion and love for tennis. It is, after all a "Life Sport" and can bring amazing people together to share in amazing experiences! I was the Head Coach at RSYLTC for 16 years and now can't wait for the future to unfold at the Dingley Tennis Club. I still love playing competitively and play Grade 1 Tennis Vic Pennant as well as a couple of fun country tournaments each year.
