Christian Anrath - Head Coach

Club Professional - Tennis Australia

As a junior, Christian reached a very high standard, representing the state many times. In the mid 90's, after a period away from the game, he returned to Tennis as an adult playing at a high level in Open Tournaments in the ACT and around Australia. At the same time he started his tennis coaching career at the Tuggeranong Tennis Centre (TTC). TTC was the ACT's largest Tennis Centre with over 2000 pupils and 300 club members. He coached there until 2004 when it was sold and changed its name to the MPowerdome. Christian then went on to work with The Steven Moloney School of Tennis at North Woden and Pines Tennis Clubs. In 2006 he started at Kambah Tennis Club.

As a Tennis Coach, Christian has extensive experience coaching at all levels and ages. He is an outstanding motivator for young children. Christian's infectious personality attracts players to the games and at the same time imparts his considerable tennis knowledge to his pupils.
