As some of you are aware, after 19 years at the Nunawading Community Centre I will be finishing at the end of this term. I will be taking on a new position as Coach Leader with Tennis Victoria/Australia. This is a full time position and means I will no longer be coaching.

Since my appointment I have been busy trying to secure a new operator. I am pleased to announce that Lisa and Mark Hartnett from Pro Tennis Academy will be taking over my role. With the council’s planned redevelopment of the Community Centre, our courts will be closing at the end of 2019. Over the next couple of terms, Pro Tennis Academy will work on a smooth transition to their already established programs running at Mitcham and Donvale Tennis Clubs. We are currently working together to insure as little disruption as possible. We appreciate your patience and we will be in contact soon to confirm classes.

My last sessions will be 12th April, the final day of our Easter holiday program (see details below). I hope to see as many of you there as possible. If you are owed any make up classes, please try to catch up by this date. No credits or make ups will be available to carry over into next term. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or Lisa Hartnett on 0407 050 060 or email


Personally, I’d like to thank all of the students and families who have been part of our community for many years. I won’t forget all the amazing experience and friends. I will still be around as my son will continue to play competition. So I look forwards to being a dad cheering on the sidelines!                            

 Thanks Jon.
