I started playing tennis when I was 6 years old. Over time I became a tennis fan each and everyday. When I turned 19 I took the Instructor Course to be able to teach kids and adults. The Yellowknife Tennis Club was so kind to give me this opportunity to futher my love for tennis. I started coaching one on one and kids from 6 – 16 year old, and adult nighs while alos hosting the tournaments. Overall, I love tennis and always bring an enthousiastic approach to my coaching tehnique.
