From a professional tennis player to running a successful coaching program
Vida Tennis is a tennis coaching program that caters to youth in Victoria, Australia.
Kane has been playing tennis for almost all his life. What started as a hobby at five years old, turned into a tennis career in his teens. At 18 years old, he had a world ranking and was traveling all over the world. After a long journey, playing in almost every country around the world, Kane was ready for a lifestyle change.
He was done with the traveling, but not with the sport. Kane returned home and started Vida Tennis, a tennis coaching program. He soon realized that playing the sport was a lot different from running a coaching program. Kane turned to mentors who guided him on how to coach tennis and the day-to-day requirements of running the business.
Since then, Vida Tennis has grown rapidly and now has 6,000 active participants per week and over 70 team members.
“For the customer, it builds trust. It builds a relationship knowing that there’s a real person on the other end, not just an automated message.”
Kane Dewhurst, Director
