I grew up in Mallorca, training and working in the tennis industry within the Balearic Islands and Spain since I was a young boy.
I played and trained in clubs alongside many other players who have gone on to have long careers in competing, coaching and managing clubs.
I played against Rafael Nadal and Carlos Moya (former world number 1 tennis players).
We learnt the same methodologies and techniques and worked with the same people who helped to shape my tennis abilities. These skills that allowed me to achieve and succeed as a teen when competing are what I now draw on to train up NZ's future tennis professionals and anyone interested in becoming a good tennis player.
I have worked and continue to work closely with some dynamic professional people in Mallorca, we share our knowledge and skills between us, so I am able to offer training opportunities to the highest degree in both NZ and Spain.
