Brad Heck – Tennis Coach
Hello, my name is Brad Heck. I commenced coaching tennis
with students of the school in 2015 following a request from Mal Anderson to
continue his good work in previous years.
I live near Fernvale with my wife, Jeanette, where my parents enrolled
me in tennis coaching in primary school. I have been enjoying playing tennis
for 45 years, commencing with playing fixtures in Ipswich, and then with many
clubs around Queensland. I have been successful at several regional tournaments
and fixture competitions, and continue to play regularly for enjoyment.
been teaching tennis for around 20 years, commencing with my own children and
as a volunteer assistant to Harry Redgrave at the Gatton Tennis Club. Following
a career in the rural water industry, in 2013 I became a qualified Development
Coach with Tennis Coaches Australia. Since then I have been coaching with Tall
Gums Sports Centre at Walloon on a part time basis. I coach twice weekly at
Gatton, and weekly at Laidley, Lake Clarendon, Fernvale and Walloon. I am also
the secretary of the Lockyer District Tennis Association and run the junior Hot
Shots program in Gatton.
Tennis is a great game that can be played for life,
and I really enjoy the opportunity of introducing children to the sport, seeing
them having fun and facilitating their individual progression to their optimum ability.
I currently coach at the school at 8am on Tuesdays, and all ages are welcome to
A 45 minute group lesson costs $12 per student. If you would like to
