Brendan began his tennis playing career growing up in Port Elizabeth and he competed in both South Africa and the UK.

QUOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR

“Tennis is a sport for life! From personal experience, tennis teaches valuable life lessons and

can open many doors for one’s future. My coaching philosophy is a holistic one; I believe the person comes first, then the player. Each individual requires a different pathway to success,

and it is my challenge to provide the direction to make that a possibility, so that they may learn to enjoy the game as much as I do.”

- Brendan van der Weide
