Improve your skills
Our Club is fortunate to have a full time professional coach, Carl Terizzi, who moved to Kerikeri in 2006. Before moving here, Carl worked in Australia for 21 years, where he has coached World-ranked Juniors and Seniors.
Carl's company Bay Tennis Academy offers a comprehensive coaching program for all needs and requirements. He has built a thriving junior programme for our club and has a stable following for his fun adult group lessons. He has an excellent rapport with juniors and seniors alike.
Junior coaching is a fun and exciting way to learn basic skills needed for stroke production and basic techniques, focusing on hand eye coordination, with a fitness component.
Adult coaching is available from beginner to competitive level. Group lessons run Mondays from 9 to 10:30am and 6:30 to 7:30pm
Players who wish to fine tune strokes or work on specific weaknesses can book a private lesson.
In Carl's Pro-Shop you will find everything you need to play tennis.
You can try out the latest racquets, specifically designed for your level (from beginners to pros). He also stocks a large range of shoes, shirts and socks and of course a variety of the right balls needed for the game. Racquets can be hired on both a short and long term basis, a deposit will be required.
You can enjoy one of Carl's coffees or ice cream while watching others play or discussing your last match
