BECOME A CARDIO TENNIS DELIVERER

Cardio Tennis is entering its second year! Launching Cardio Tennis last year was exciting for New Zealand. This international programme has over 30 countries already involved, and Tennis NZ was fortunate enough to use its strong relationship with Tennis Australia in order to access this world class fitness programme that is 'the third way to play tennis'.

Based on an average charge of $15 per session, and an average attendance of 25 people per week, that gives the average coach a weekly income of $375 just from Cardio Tennis!
