Hi, I’m Connor Brosnahan and I have been a tennis coach/instructor since 2013. I grew up in Ashburton and was taught to play tennis at the age of five by my dad, Tony, who is also a coach and referee. I went on to represent Mid Canterbury and Canterbury Country.
After leaving high school, I worked for a security company during New Zealand summers and as a tennis coach in England during the Northern Hemisphere summers. In 2018/2019, I was based at the Jonathan Markson Academy of Tennis hosted by Oxford University.
I have completed the Tennis NZ junior development course, which is ITF Level 1 certification, that includes Cardio Tennis and XPress Programmes.
I have been working as a tennis coach in Europe and New Zealand for over 9 years.
The Cardio Tennis program is designed to combine the excitement of tennis with the benefits of a heart-pumping cardio workout. The ladies’ group fitness session incorporates drills and games that elevate your heart rate while improving your tennis skills. Regardless of your fitness level, Cardio Tennis offers a fun and social environment where you can burn calories, improve your overall fitness, and enjoy the thrill of the game.
The Hot Shots program is designed specifically for young tennis enthusiasts. Through modified equipment and smaller court sizes, children are introduced to tennis in a fun and engaging manner. Hot Shots offers a progressive curriculum that allows children to develop their skills at their own pace. With a focus on age-appropriate drills, games, and friendly competitions, Hot Shots creates an enjoyable and supportive environment for children to foster their love for tennis while enhancing their coordination and motor skills.
