Coaching at SHTC

Sue Davey and Dylan Edgley are the club’s co-coaches.

Sue has been coaching at South Hawthorn for the past 20 years. She was Junior Convenor for 10 years and has been a committee member for much of that time.

Dylan has extensive experience coaching at various clubs around Melbourne, while being a member of South Hawthorn for many years. Dylan regularly plays competition tennis, is on the Board of the Tennis Coaches of Australia, Victorian section and is keen to introduce new programs and opportunities for coaching at South Hawthorn. 

Together they have a challenging, inspiring and welcoming tennis coaching program for children and adults. Many students continue into Junior or Senior competition and enjoy camaraderie, team spirit and success representing the club. Coaching is available for juniors Monday to Friday after school.

All ages and standards are catered for, in our structured classes that are designed to meet the individual needs of each child. All students are challenged and encouraged with emphasis placed on having fun, building confidence and improving technique.

Our adult classes cater for all playing levels. Technique, movement and strategies are covered during the lessons. Lots of fun in a low key environment, everyone is welcome. Sue and Dylan have some groups for members in their 20’s, which is a great way to meet people and start your own social groups.

Private lessons: Individual, semi private or creating your own coaching group are available upon request. Start from scratch, polish your skills, improve your fitness or work on your singles or doubles strategy…let us know and we can accommodate you!!
