Team

We have a wonderful team of young, qualified, and energetic coaches, who are all great at training our junior players. Training begins with basic tennis skills and technique and progresses towards more advanced aspects of the sport, such as game tactics and mental toughness, in preparation for national and international tournaments. Our coaches are fluent in English and/or Thai, some with specialized backgrounds in sports and athletics, sports science, and other tennis-related areas. Many of the coaches are former national tennis players who still have a strong passion for tennis and are eager to pass on their knowledge to their students at Spin and Slice.
