What the KNLTB say!
Mike is a really inspiring person. Not only his knowledge is inspiring for people who are interested in tennis but the way Mike presents the knowledge is unique. In a simple but entertaining way he is able to present complicated theories and know how. His journey through tennis is an interesting journey to follow. Inspiring people is Mike’s core business.

Mike makes clear the differences between young and older children. He shows and explains how to make that knowledge applicable for coaches in a logical and practical way. Finally he demonstrates that quality learning and having fun can both be delivered!
