Connie Leone20 Years of Playing 9th Year of Coaching 5th Year of Head Coach Role at Beyond Tennis AATC Course/Workshop
This year marks the 20th year of being involved in the sport as a player and later on as a coach. My years of playing allowed me to compete in State and National Tournaments, Junior and Senior Pennant and represent Victoria. Unfortunately to an early onset of chronic injury my goals of representing Australia diminished but over time kept playing from a fun, social perspective. The first stepping stones for coaching were made here at the Elite Tennis Academy with Lynton back in 2009. Gaining as much as I could by coaching at the ETA, other coaching companies and studying in the sporting field, it helped me create Beyond Tennis in a partnership and find my feet as a coach. Working as a Head Coach gave me the opportunity to develop myself as a coach and bring my knowledge, skills and qualities to further help the students at the ETA.
Kahlee RennesAATC Professional Tennis Coach Tennis Australia Hot Shots Coach Training Bachelor of Exercise Science and Human Movement
Hi my name is Kahlee and I have recently returned to coaching after having a gorgeous baby boy, Ethan, in February. Many of you will recall seeing me waddling around the court late last year during the warmer months and I am looking forward to catching up with everyone again.
Philip BrownMy belief is that you only get out what you put in, so I am a strong believer of hard work determination. Growing up tennis was never my first choice in sport but came to enjoy it more after completing football at a junior age group. I am terrified of heights and I generally dislike seafood.
Arzu KizilayTennis and travelling are my two passions in life. Both have been my greatest teachers. I fell in love with tennis at the age of 6 when my dad gave me my first racquet. My years of playing allowed me to compete in A Special Grade, Junior and Senior Pennant, State and National Tournaments. Even though as an adult life’s curveballs took me away from playing for a while, my love for the sport never diminished, instead it grew even stronger.

Fern McAllisterI like to teach self-belief and the only limits are what we place upon ourselves. If you can dream, then you can realize your dreams. I work with people who are from marginalized groups and abilities. I am passionate about working with people with disabilities and helping them to achieve their goals and dreams, no matter what their age or ability.
