Tennis Australia Talent Development Coach Lower North East Regional Coach of the Year Coach of 2 Australian #1 Juniors for age
The Hennessy Family

Our association with the Harbour Tennis Academy and Westside Tennis Club began in early 2011 when our then seven-year-old son expressed a desire to learn how to play tennis. Upon recommendation from friends we contacted Allan Pade at the Harbour Tennis Academy and Connor began an hour group lesson the following week with others at the same age and ability and our four year old in a half hour group Peewee lesson.

We have found Allan, Nardia and their staff extremely friendly and professional. They have a great rapport with the kids and are always encouraging them to play their best whilst most importantly having fun and enjoying the game.

Connor has now progressed to competing in the club hot shots competition, taking part in holiday coaching as well as playing in the club squad group and having private coaching lessons with Allan.

Allan’s expert coaching has inspired Connor to strive to reach his potential and the improvement in his game has been very significant and beyond even our expectations.

The clubhouse at Westside is well equipped, child friendly as well as safe and secure for kid’s waiting for their game/lesson or parents to arrive to pick them up afterwards.

Harbour Tennis Academy has given our boys a great introduction to the game of Tennis.

Thankyou from the Hennessy Family.

Kanga Kidz Multi Sports Program

Many thanks to Nardia & the Harbour Tennis Academy/ Kanga Kidz team. Prior to joining Kanga Kidz my 4yr old son was struggling with gross motor skills and social development. We initially came just for the holiday program but by the end of the week we were seeing huge changes in our son’s behaviour and he was asking when he could go back! In just 4 days he had gone from a clumsy, introverted child to a confident little boy participating in all the activities and interacting with the other kids. Even his teachers at pre-school have commented on his improvement. Your program is perfectly suited to this age group and you do an amazing job keeping all those kids under control! Keep up the good work!

Tennis Coaching

Allan has been coaching our son, Aaron for the past five years.

Over this time, we have been extremely happy with Allan’s enthusiasm and energy he delivers with his coaching. He puts in 100% into his lessons and goes beyond the expected requirement of a coach.

We have found Allan to be a very pro-active coach and is always putting forward new ideas to improve his students. He is very innovative, extremely organised and up to date with all current coaching techniques. He goes out of his way to research his training to see what is best for each person.

Allan always shows concern for his students on and off the court. We know this first hand because of the dedication he shows our son. Allan is one of the few coaches that will come and support his students at tennis matches and he has done this many times.

This dedication to his students brings with it a very positive partnership not only with his students but also parents of the students.

Overall, we have found Allan to be a very dedicated, enthusiastic and genuine coach. This is a rarity and something that does not go unnoticed by ourselves and I am sure many others.
