"Both my kids have loved doing their group tennis lessons with Quentin, they really enjoy the different skills games they play to improve their tennis. For me, having the lessons at school - during school hours, is fantastic as it means we don’t have to travel into town for tennis lessons.” Mary
"Each of our four children has learnt to play tennis at Roto-o-Rangi School. They have thoroughly enjoyed Quentin’s infectious approach to sharing his knowledge and love of the game. He is always well prepared, creative with training techniques and supportive of the children as they take their first shots on a tennis court. The tournament at the end of the year is an excellent way for the pupils to showcase the skills they have learnt. We highly recommend the tennis programme at Roto-o-Rangi School.” Ailsa & Alan Hunt
