What some clients say:
"My 3 yr old daughter started Hot Shots Tennis with Jim at the Strathdale courts this year and she loves it. The coaching is focused on fun, vibrant learning incorporating Tennis techniques amongst group activity.
So inspired by the group of children partaking that myself and two other Mothers now participate in Cardio Tennis with Jim whilst the Children enjoy their separate lesson with Sam.
Having never picked up a Tennis racket before, this was something my child and I could learn together. We are both learning new skills, enjoying a laugh with new friends and benefiting from plenty of Huff and Puff. Tuesday mornings are now a highlight of our week."

"My two boys, 4 & 5 year olds have been attending tennis coaching with
Jim for nearly a year now. They both love going & have so much fun.
Each lesson Jim has story driven "tennis adventures" that the kids really get into and always talk about afterwards.
I would highly recommend his coaching to any parent looking for a fun,
non-threatening and positive sporting environment. Bendigo is very lucky to have a coach like him!"
- Kristel Belbin
"Jim is fantastic with kids and my boys love his tennis coaching lessons! Jim always creates a fun atmosphere every lesson, ensuring my boys are fully engaged so they get the most out of every lesson. It has been very rewarding to see their tennis skills improve. "
- Natalie Tremellen
"My 5 year old daughter has been having lessons with Jim for nearly a year. She looks forward to it every week because it's so much fun playing tennis games with the other students. Jim's lessons are directed appropriately to their age group and abilities, keeping the children interested and actively participating every week. There's plenty of laughter too!
I enjoyed watching my daughter's lessons with Jim so much, I decided to fulfil a long-held dream and learn to play myself! I've had 10 lessons so far, and I'm already starting to play socially with my friends. It's been great for my fitness too!"
- Meg Grainger
"Jim is a dedicated and talented devotee of the game whose rapport with people of all ages is amazing. Love attending his Cardio classes. The hour goes too quickly and the week takes too long to come around again. Give him a go. His enthusiasm is contagious and you will be better for it. Oh and he can even play tennis as well."
- Hally Wild
"Jim Wid provides private tennis coaching to my children and cardio tennis for me. He is fantastic with the kids, making the lessons fun and enjoyable whilst learning the fundamental techniques. He makes Cardio Tennis a blast and it is so much fun that I forget that I'm exercising. I can't recommend Jim enough other than to say my Cardio lesson is the highlight of my week!"
- Myf Truscott
"I find cardio tennis a great combination of exercise, tennis skill and fun. My 5 and 7 year kids have also started lessons and love it. They are having a wonderful introduction to tennis and the coaches are all great with kids."
