Presentation Video

Each year I do a video for awards night for Tennis South Canterbury. The theme of the video this year is.... What is success?. Success is hard to measure and each individual success will be different ,is it accumulating tennis titles or is it just turning up for local inter-club and participating. I know many that gauge success on titles, yes that part of it but the humblest and most popular players are those that realize success comes in many shapes and forms.

Below are Pictures of a young junior I coach Anna Cochrane who is just back from the Nelson Junior Open where she lost in the Final of the 12s  in 3 hard fought sets the third being a super tie break decider against Christchurch player Alice Seeman. Anna Combined to win the doubles partnering Alice. A very successful trip , well done Anna. Anna is working hard on improving her variety in her game and as a coach I am implementing volley's and angles with Anna , As we know in Junior Girls tennis it can be just a battle from the baseline and a player that can mix it up by coming to the net to finish, create angles can cause some damage once they can implement successfully. Thanks Ace for the pics!!!

  1. Steve you did wonders for my game! South Canterbury are lucky to have such a great coach may you be there for many years so the up and coming juniors benefit from you.Tennis New Zealand needs more coaches like you....the trouble is we are soft here and the "black and white" analysis you give is nearly 98% correct . As you have always said coaches need to tell parents/pupils at times something they dont like to hear....its usually the truth and some just cant handle it. Have a look where they end up eventually and see's who right or wrong.
