Where to Play


By becoming a registered Cardio Tennis coach you'll stand head and shoulders above run-of-the-mill tennis fit programmes. Access to national marketing campaigns, localised promotion and workout plans, means that lots of the hard work is done for you and you can focus on the great stuff you do on the court.

Cardio Tennis is a smart way to grow your business as having eight players on one court is more cost effective than a private lesson. The average charge for a session is $15 – meaning an hourly rate of $120.
