Cobus Van Wyk - Tennis Coach

South Africa

Cobus van Wyk

I’m a dynamic and driven 26-year-old tennis coach from South Africa. I firmly believe that a coach’s role is to adapt to the unique needs and aspirations of each player, rather than expecting players to conform to a rigid coaching style. With my open-minded approach, I tailor my coaching methods to the individual, recognizing that every player has their own strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles.

By understanding and adapting to my players’ preferences and goals, I create a supportive and safe environment that maximizes their growth and enjoyment of the game. With my player-centric philosophy, I am dedicated to helping my players/students thrive and reach their full potential on the tennis court and in life.

My coaching philosophy – I became a tennis coach because of my enthusiasm and love for the game. Tennis coaching is not my work or job; it is an opportunity to transform lives and aid people whose tennis and lives I am lucky to be a part of. To become the best coach I can possibly be, I work hard and keep the loving excitement for this game alive by developing a passion for this extraordinary game among the young people whose lives I touch by coaching.
