Jon (pictured with his tennis-loving kids) founded US OF TENNIS by combining his many years working in corporate IT with his love of tennis to innovate and differentiate.
Originally from the USA, Jon started in baseball from the time he could swing a bat. He played at state levels for a decade before switching to tennis in his late teens and competing at state levels in Idaho.
Jon was coaching tennis in Sydney when an opportunity to work with the Thurgoona Tennis Club was the tree-change he was looking for.
Developing the next generation of players and collaborating on innovative coaching pathways is at the forefront of US OF TENNIS. Through a chance collaboration with AATC (Australasian Academy of Tennis Coaches), Jon is now also Regional Development Officer with AATC and looking to grow new coaching talent in regional NSW and VIC.
What we do
United States of Tennis
UNITED STATES OF TENNIS is our company name and for short it’s US OF TENNIS.
First and foremost, uniting the physical, emotional, cognitive and social (PECS) states of tennis for each person, each player, is how we develop and coach each individual into the best tennis player or coach they can be.
The table provides just some of the most important skills under each state that our coaching team and programs endeavour to nurture, strengthen and/or address.
Secondly, we want to bring tennis to everybody. Everybody is the us, in US OF TENNIS.
