After spending many hours watching his older brother take tennis lessons, Ben took to the tennis court at 8 years of age. The mixture of natural ability - and soaking up a tennis education from off the court - meant that Ben was soon a very accomplished player. Ben's junior tournament record is impressive with several Tennis Victoria sanctioned titles to his credit, including the Easter Classic at Boroondara.
At age 17 Ben graduated to playing Grade One pennant, in 2010 and was awarded Pennant Player of the Year by Tennis Victoria. Ben is an astute observer of the game and is always studying technique and new coaching methods and innovations, Ben’s passion for tennis and coaching is evident to his students and parents from the first time they walk on the court for one of his lessons.
