Our Team

Meet our coaches

Simon Winter
Hi, my name is Simon Winter, I have had 30 years coaching tennis professionally. For the last eleven years I have been based at Hawkes Bay Lawn Tennis & Squash Club. Here I have developed an extensive club programme from Hotshots to many of the regions top juniors including Finn Reynolds, a multiple junior singles & doubles National Champion.

My wife Jenny plays a mean social game of tennis with my two sons; Adam, 19 and Luke, 15; being very competent, competitive players. In my spare time I play a little golf where my two boys represent Hawkes Bay.

I am involved with Coach Education with Tennis New Zealand where I train and qualify many coaches around the country. 

It is with our staff of experienced and qualified coaches that we also service various other schools and clubs for example Napier Boys High, Napier Girls High, Woodford, Hereworth, Napier Central Primary, Port Ahuriri, Westshore, and Eskview Club.

There are many regular adluts who enjoy the programmes at Hawkes Bay Lawn including our very popular Cardio Tennis, and Tennis Xpress.

I look forward to seeing you on court some time.
