Backhand video now at ”Shire pupils in action”
This website will remain on line for historical and informative purposes.
After 58 years of tennis coaching, and 34 of those years at Blaxland Drive, Illawong, Shire Tennis Academy Principal, John George, has retired and handed the reins to Ryan Hanrahan’s Velox Tennis. For all general coaching enquiries at Blaxand Drive tennis courts, please call Ryan on 0423 343 037.
Ryan will continue the “Shire“ tradition with small graded classes to ensure individual attention. John will still be active at the venue, and consider enquiries for committed 2 player private lessons. John can be contacted at 0404 885 319.
John established this website to showcase his 58 years teaching tennis.
More importantly, to thank the several hundred enthusiastic and dedicated tennis coaches that worked with him and who contributed to the history; it’s therefore unlike a regular tennis coaching website designed for marketing tennis coaching services. A summary of the history follows, and includes many other items including some extracts from John’s book
(yet to be completed),”Winning....it’s all in the Mind”. Should you be interested, just go to History in the main menu; it begins way back in the 70’s when John and his wife Dianne built Tennisland at Kellyville.
