My children have been coached by Southern Cross Tennis for the past 7 years. It is due to the quality and dedication of the coaches that they have continued with this sport and are very passionate about the game. Between the tournament trips that are regular events and the yearly planners that are provided we couldn’t have asked for more. I would highly recommend Southern Cross Tennis to anyone.
Southern Cross Tennis has really helped me take my tennis to the next level mentally and physically. The coaches and players are really great and they create a friendly community atmosphere. Not only do the coaches motivate you, they give you a huge amount of support which is unlike anything I have experienced over my past 11years of playing tennis.
I have been with Southern Cross Tennis since I was about 13 years old. I began training at Kelvin Grove State College and then moved to Samford were I began lessons and squads. I have been extremely lucky to be apart of such a great program and team. Through my years with southern cross I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to complete my coaching course, and earned a certificate whilst finishing high school and training. After high school I began training full time at Southern Cross and made my way over to the United States on a tennis scholarship.
Southern Cross Tennis is not only a place to learn, nor is it just a club. Southern Cross Tennis is so much more then that. It’s a place of welcoming and fun. It’s not just a club of people who play tennis, it’s a family. Just being apart of this family makes you feel like your a star even if you haven’t played before. It’s not just a sport or a game to these people. It’s a passion. And at Southern Cross Tennis we all share that same vision. Tennis may be a one person sport but at Southern Cross Tennis you never feel alone.
Southern cross tennis has coached me from age 14 through 19. With southern cross tennis my game has improved beyond belief, and I have loved every minute of it. Thanks to their coaching expertise I am now lucky enough to be playing college tennis, and contending for a national championship.
