High Performance Camps at Premier Tennis Academy

I feel very proud and honoured to be conducting the High Performance Camps at the Kings School in Parramatta, NSW over the next two weeks. I will be working alongside the coaching team and staff at Premier Tennis Academy to ensure that our students are going to have a tremendous experience with us over the next fortnight. I’m super excited to begin. See you out on court!

4th Year Anniversary at Premier Tennis Academy

I remember setting a few goals in early 2017, which were to graduate from university, network with other professionals and continue coaching and mentoring my students at Premier Tennis Academy. I did exactly that 🙂

In 2017, I graduated from university, gained new skills and networks whilst working at Deloitte as a graduate accountant and continued working in my role as a tennis coach at Premier Tennis Academy. It was a very busy year indeed!

I feel extremely fortunate to have had such a strong relationship with the owner and team at Premier Tennis Academy, particularly during a time of transition post-university. It truly was my saving grace on many occasions during the past year. My respect and admiration for the team grew and I feel very proud to be a part of the team at Premier Tennis Academy. Our key performance indicators are always about our actions towards building and maintaining strong relationships, which I advocate in my daily life.

In Year 4, I will be keen to spend more time on court and travelling throughout NSW with my players as they compete on the junior tour. I will also be working harder to build my networks within this sport and follow my passion for this game. It will be another amazing year!

My Deloitte Journey Begins…

In 2017, I graduate with a bachelors degree in business and commerce from Western Sydney University and begin a new journey as a graduate in one of the big four accounting firms in the world – Deloitte. I am both excited and humbled by this opportunity and will endeavour to bring forth the same energy and enthusiasm towards this role as I have done in each of my roles in the past. In addition, I will continue mentoring and coaching junior tennis players and hope that I can continue to connect with professionals who can inspire and support both my students and myself to become all we can be! – Originally posted on 20 January 2017

I began my role as a graduate at the accounting firm in March 2017. I can recall being so excited about this opportunity ever since I was accepted into the program over 1 year ago! Has it really been that long? Wow

I feel as though it is only appropriate to reflect on this new chapter in my life, having been with the firm for three months, by commenting on what I believe are the challenges, positives and negatives of this role going forward into the future.

NEGATIVES

  • The inability to predict my workload
  • Not being my own boss

CHALLENGES

  • Getting at least 7 hours of sleep per day
  • Ensuring that I can continue to mentor and coach junior tennis players and adults throughout the week
  • Being social (since I am an introvert, naturally)

POSITIVES

  • The ability to work amongst likeminded individuals
  • Making an impact that matters
  • Learning new skills on a daily basis

It’s quite clear to see, just from my quick reflection on my experience at Deloitte thus far, that there is no perfect role, situation or environment. That goes for both your work and personal life. We will always face challenges and have experiences that are both positive and negative.

In my opinion, the way to keep winning at life is to learn from the negatives, embrace the positives and face the challenges. There really is nowhere to hide from them because they are the recurring themes in everything we do. I will keep you all posted 🙂

3rd Year Anniversary at Premier Tennis Academy

I cannot believe how fast three years has gone by at Premier Tennis Academy! Time flies when you’re having fun 🙂

Over the past three years, I have mentored and coached junior tennis players to help them become better competitors in this sport. During this time, I have both reconnected and become acquainted with some amazing people that I have learned a great deal from and have helped me grow in confidence as a leader, mentor and coach. There have been some amazing results for my students both on and off the court. I am truly grateful for this year.

In 2017, I graduate with a bachelors degree in business and commerce from Western Sydney University and begin a new journey as a graduate in one of the big four accounting firms in the world – Deloitte. I am both excited and humbled by this opportunity and will endeavour to bring forth the same energy and enthusiasm towards this role as I have done in each of my roles in the past. In addition, I will continue mentoring and coaching junior tennis players and hope that I can continue to connect with professionals who can inspire and support both my students and myself to become all we can be!

 

2015 NSW State Championships

Congratulations to Rahul Desai on reaching the final of the 12/under junior boys singles lead in event! He has worked so hard, listened well and applied all that he has been told from every member of his team (Premier Tennis Academy and NSW National Academy).

I would also like to extend the congratulations to Rahul and his partner William Hatzis for reaching the quarter-final of the 12/under junior boys doubles event. Having started a very successful partnership earlier in the year, it was great to see them team up again and have another great result.

Rahul lost early in the singles draw of the main event to the eventual winner, Aidan Vaughan in tough conditions, however this did not take away from a fantastic two-week series of events.

We are all so proud of him!

Take a look at his journey throughout the event series here:

1st Year Anniversary at Premier Tennis Academy

I felt deep down that 2014 was going to be a great year, and I was right!

There was something special about the way I acquired my role as Tennis Coach at Premier Tennis Academy. I was working in Texas, USA at the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch and happened to bump into a coach who was travelling with a group of his students. This coach happened to be an Australian, who owned and operated a Tennis Academy in my hometown of Sydney. It must have been fate because we lived only a short distance from one another however, we met each other thousands of km’s away in another country. After a few short meetings and on court sessions, I got the job!

It’s been a year that has challenged me in such a great way. I feel like a stronger Tennis Coach and person. Bring on 2015!
