Hi Kris Martin here. It’s with great pleasure I can introduce myself

 as theTennis Coach Of Taupo Tennis Club.


I have played Tennis since I was 6 years of age. I competed in all

Junior age groups.  After playing a high Junior level for several

years I got Approached by tennis Ireland to train to become a tennis

coach. After a year of training I qualified as a Professional tennis

 coach. This Qualification allowed me to coach in such places as

Greece, Turkey, Ireland, London, Austria and New York.


I believe tennis is a great year round sport that should be enjoyable; I like to bring an element of fun to my lessons.


I have trained junior and senior players training to become career tennis Professionals and I have coached 5 year old beginners. I love teaching tennis to everyone and have worked with every spectrum of player.


I look forward to taking Taupo Tennis Club to the next level, bringing my vast experience and dynamic range of sessions to the club to hopefully cater for every tennis need.

Please feel free to approach me at any time in the club with regards to any of the new Tennis Program

We have decided to change the format of our junior social.

We are introducing round robin box leagues for all players able to play matches and that would like to participate.

Sign up sheet for this will be at the club from today.

All the matches for the box league can be played/arranged for Tuesday , Wednesday or thursday

The allocated times for these matches are between 3:30 and 5:30 each of the above mentioned days.

For Juniors that are not quite ready for matches we will be doing “Skill Awards” challenge.

All players will have a list a specific skills they must achieve i.e 5 forehands into a target area etc.


Dates and times the Skill Awards will be confirmed by the 18th of feb so keep an eye on the club notice board or contact Kris at  for any questions or for further information.


Very excited about the new social tennis and I hope to see you all playing more
