Meet Hayato

Tennis Student Programs

Hayato started in our Adult 1.0 Clinics when he was a student and now, as a recent Alumni, you will find him regularly at the centre in our Drills programs and leagues.

They recognize that everyone progresses at different speeds, and the lessons are formatted so you can get better at your own pace depending on how comfortable you are. There’s a great variety of participants and I always felt welcome thanks to the incredible staff and coaches.
