Shane Tainui is half Irish, half Maori and grew up on the sleepy shores of Akaroa. Somehow Shane became a very competitive tennis player and then a qualified coach. His playing and coaching skills were sharpened by working for nearly 10 years as a professional player/ coach in the top clubs around Stuttgart, Germany.

Shane’s background ensures that every coaching session is fun and encouraging.

But Shane also brings a very trained eye that can develop players to Division 1 level.

Sport Canterbury awarded Shane the Summer Sports Awards for Tennis Coaching in 2007.

The emphasis, for the younger players, is on fun and the children look forward to the training sessions.

Shane also coaches at several schools and any school, or other organisation, is invited to contact him.
