I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for Shawn's incredible work with my son over the past year or so. His approach to coaching is genuinely remarkable. As a fundamental coach, Shawn can break down complex techniques into simple, understandable steps that my son could grasp and execute on the court. His dedication to ensuring that he mastered each skill before moving on to the next was inspiring to watch. What's more, his ability to connect with him on a personal level has been invaluable. His positive attitude, patience, and encouragement have helped him build confidence on the court. As a parent, seeing my son's transformation since he started working with Shawn has been incredible. He has become a more disciplined, focused, and determined young man and his tennis progress has been remarkable. We are truly grateful to have him as our son's coach.



Coach Shawn Cummings is simply AMAZING, and an exceptionally experienced, knowledgeable and thorough tennis coach. My husband and I came across Shawn when he allowed my son to join his tennis squad, and we have never looked back. We jumped at the chance to have him as my son's personal tennis coach with no hesitation, as we knew we would have no regrets in that decision! Having the utmost confidence in the expertise of your son's coach is absolutely priceless and we knew that he would be in great hands. We knew that Shawn would make it is his greatest priority to turn my son's tennis game weaknesses into strengths. He has made my son feel at ease with his thorough, caring, professional and supportive approach to coaching and has been a big contributor to the exponential growth that my son has shown both in his physical and mental tennis game. Despite my son only being 11 years old, his maturity on the tennis court is second to none, and this is primarily due to the coaching that he has received from Shawn. Whilst the journey has not been easy, Shawn has always remained patient, and has always been the first one to encourage him to 'keep going' - something of high importance on my husband and my list, due to my son's young age! His sense of humour and always friendly vibe doesn't hurt either, as it helps to provide my son with the reassurance that it is 'ok' to lose once in a while! I cannot recommend and sing the praises of Coach Shawn highly enough! If you want a tennis coach for your child that is confidently professional with a heart, then he is the tennis coach for you!

Shawn is an awesome tennis coach! He's helped my son improve his game in so many ways. Shaun really knows his stuff and he's super patient and encouraging. He's helped my son improve his serve and groundstrokes a lot, and now my son feels way more confident on the court. I totally recommend Shaun if you want to take your kid's tennis game to the next level!
