Nic Jenkins

Head Coach

Nic established 'Elevate Tennis' in 2017 after having a successful junior career. Nic competed at International & National events, represented Canterbury and won three NZ titles with his school. With injuries preventing him from pursuing competitive tennis it made sense for him to expand his passion for tennis in the coaching environment. Nic really enjoys working with a range of different players, abilities and ages.

Rhys Weaver

Development Coach and Junior Convenor


Rhys has been coaching since 2017 and has been essential in developing players into Interclub competition. Rhys will be running the hotshots programmes and working with Junior Interclub groups.
