The Tennis Menu is designed by professionals in the tennis industry, to give athletes, parents and coaches a platform for developing tennis players.
Working at the pinnacle of both Tennis and AFL, our co-founder Marc Sophoulis boasts an impressive resume. Coaching on the ATP and WTA Tours as well as the ITF Juniors and developing players from grass roots, Marc’s success at all levels of the game has allowed him to gain experience in all aspects of player development and fine tune his successful coaching philosophy. As the head coach of the Melbourne International Tennis School (MITS) he has been responsible for shaping the tennis careers of numerous national junior tennis champions.
Marc’s coaching skills and processes transcend individual sports, as is evident by work with developing players at Australian Footballs highest level through the Richmond Football Club, the 2017 AFL Premiers.
Our 2nd co-founder, Nick Gissing has worked in multiple roles throughout the sporting industry. A coach for 10 years, Nick has run coaching programs at multiple Universities throughout Australia, shaping the development pathway for adult players and winning two National Championships in the process. His focus lies on innovative coaching technology and analysis, with highlights including the creation of a nation wide video analysis system in Australia, providing grass roots players with professional level analysis tools, and the development of the Tennis Australia technique app, used by tennis coaches worldwide to analyse and correct technique.
Separately the skills of both founders are strong, however when combined together create a holistic program to aid in the development of the entire Tennis Menu community. The Tennis Menu is designed to provide a pathway that anyone can follow to better shape their tennis game. Utilizing the years of experience both founders possess, they’ve put together a program that takes you step by step through the developmental process, to not only help produce better tennis players, but to help create better teachers.
Over time all members of this program will receive videos, blogs, drills and a holistic array of tools to help grow your game. We truly believe that the content within this program is unlike anything seen before in the tennis industry, and is the best option for any athletes, coaches or parents wanting to take control of their own or their child’s development.
Stop guessing, and select the right developmental tools off ‘the menu’.
