Hello, my name is Matt Ward. I have been playing and coaching tennis across the Manawatu for over a decade as an assistant coach for Jono Spring, and more recently as the co-coach for Manawatu Lawn, and head coach for Dannevirke, Bulls, Oroua, and Wanganui tennis clubs. I have a wealth of experience helping tennis players at all levels improve their game and am looking forward to helping members of Wanganui Tennis Club to do the same. I have a postgraduate degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology and have utilised these skills to help tennis players at all levels to get faster, stronger, and more agile through speed, agility, strength, and conditioning training. Along with this, I also have a solid foundation of tactical and technical knowledge through years of playing and coaching which I am excited to share. If you see me around the club, come and say hi. For all coaching services please don’t hesitate to get in touch
