Hi my name is Simon Winter, I have had 20 years coaching tennis professionally. For the last six years I have been based at Hawkes Bay Lawn Tennis & Squash Club. Here I have developed an extensive club programme as the Hawkes Bay Regional Coach developing many of the regions top juniors including Finn Reynolds currently a New Zealand representative.

My wife Jenny plays a mean social game of tennis with my nine year old son Luke on track to beating his Dad on the court one day. In my spare time I play a little golf where my 13 year old son Adam is a Hawkes Bay rep and already beating me from time to time.
