Matt is one of only three Tennis Australia Master Club Professional coaches in WA and is recognised by Tennis Australia as one of the top Club and Tennis Hot Shots coaches in Australia – the only WA coach to have been nominated for both categories at the Australian Tennis Awards, and to have won one of the awards.
Originally from the UK, Matt has been based in Perth since 2001. After four years as Head Coach at Nedlands Tennis Club from 2004 to 2008 he left and moved Tennis Factory to Onslow Park Tennis Club in Shenton Park. In 2018, Tennis Factory expanded their award-winning tennis coaching programs to East Fremantle Lawn Tennis Club. This move means customers can enjoy Tennis Factory coaching programs both north and south of the river.
Matt is regarded as a leader in the tennis coaching industry for his vision and drive to help tennis clubs grow their membership and thrive, becoming valuable places for local communities to go to play and socialise. On-court he is passionate about getting as many people as possible playing the game and to help them become the best players they can be, commensurate with Tennis Factory’s slogan ‘Building Better Players’.

Having run his own business and club for this period Jack has the skills delivering on the court and the knowledge off the court having done an amazing job at helping Maylands Tennis Club develop their coaching program from non-existent to very healthy numbers of players.
