A ***** star review for Coach AJ
"AJ explains in a way children understand and they always seem to be smiling. I'm really pleased with the whole set up actually. My child just told me out of the blue a few weeks back that she wanted to play tennis and after enquiring with Tennis excellence, they gave me a free trial day for her to try before committing and now Payten is hooked lol. The facilities at Melville are also really great so we have both become members so we can get more court time for her "
