Neal Grayson


Assistant Coach

I first picked up a racket at the age of 9, shortly after moving from Switzerland to New Zealand. My love for the game has grown immensely since then. I started off playing once a week that has now turned into 3 or 4 days a week.

I learnt the game at my local tennis club in Glendowie, but also like to analyze the big player’s games on youtube and having a hit with friends. I play for the Glendowie junior Interclub team, and I have played many tournaments and satalilte games. I have come second in club champs for 3 years.

In the Term 1 holidays of 2019, I was lucky enough to participate in the Tennis New Zealand Assistant Coaching Course. Over the 3 days, I learnt many different skills, such as what activities to choose according to the skill level of the children, and how to make the kids have fun and enjoy their time on the tennis court while learning new skills. I love sharing my passion with others and help them achieve their goals.

Hope to see you soon on the tennis court!
