Garreth O'Carroll - Tennis Coach


Garreth O’Carroll

“My 15 year old son has been fortunate to have had Garreth as his tennis coach since he was 6 years old. Garreth’s desire to help people succeed is evident in the enthusiasm, flexibility and patience he has shown towards my son as he encouraged him to gain and develop skills, knowledge and techniques. Garreth’s understanding of the psychology that supports successful competitive play has also been a vital element in maximising my son’s performance. I would highly recommend Garreth as a supportive and encouraging coach to students of any age or level”. 8th February 2018. Miriam Curley

Encouraging, positive, supportive, mentor and friend are few of the attributes coming to my mind when thinking of Garreth. He's been coaching my kids since they were 5 years old and now 11 years later with many tournaments, championships and league matches under their belt they look up to him and have progressed into quality players. I have no hesitation recommending Garreth to anyone either taking up tennis for the first time or looking to improve, child or adult His gentle manner and professional approach builds player's confidence and interest for the game.

Garreth has been working in David Lloyd Riverview since January 2016 and he has been a fantastic coach for us. He is a key member of our team and one of our best coaches. He has been working with all junior ages and all adult abilities and he is brilliant with them all. I would highly recommend Garreth as a coach for any level.
