With over 30 years in the tennis world – many of these as a top professional player and NZ #1 for 10 years – I now have over 12 years' coaching experience to add to my playing experience. You know you're in good hands. I am dedicated to making sure all our clients continue to grow their love of tennis by improving their game and enjoying the satisfaction that comes with progress.

Rosa gonzalez

Rosa started playing tennis at age 5 at the encouragement of her grandmother. She completed the Coaching Assistant Course in 2020 and is a valued member of the SMASHTENNIS team.

Rosa offers a lot to her lessons and enjoys her time with our younger players. She is well organised and thinks carefully about her lesson. She has really grown over the years into her coaching role and loves getting to know each and every client. Rosa has grown up playing tennis at Belmont Park and participated in all the SMASHTENNIS programmes throughout her teenage years, so it’s great to now have her giving back to the kids. She is a great player herself and enjoys her singles.
