JORDEN LE LONG
2020/21 TENNIS AUCKLAND COACH OF THE YEAR
I have a passion for sport and played cricket and tennis from a young age. I knew a pathway in teaching and instruction was for me so I decided to do a Bachelor of Sports Coaching at the University of Canterbury.
My tennis coaching career really kicked off in my early 20’s, coaching in Christchurch before moving up to Auckland. I moved through the ranks graduating from an Assistant to Senior Coach, and now finally a Head Coach. I currently hold an ITF Level 2 Club Professional Qualification which is well recognised and is regarded as one of the higher coaching degrees you can have.
In my spare time I enjoy playing Inter-Club, spending time with friends, going for walks in nature, and other sports such as Golf, Table Tennis, and Basketball.
I’m really looking forward to getting to know the members at Glendowie, and contributing to the success of the club, especially with Social Nights and Junior and Senior Coaching. Please feel free to come and say hi and introduce yourself.
