Marconi Tennis Academy  and world No.1 Novak Djokovic have something in common  – they have both started 2016 with a bang.

The Academy, which will celebrate 20 years next year, is operating near capacity with its coaching programs.

There are currently 326 kids enrolled in structured lessons every week of the school term which is a big jump from last year. 

They have more than 70 classes with ages starting from as young as four. Private lessons are also available.

“With the summer of tennis all over the TV everyone wants to play tennis,” Marconi Tennis Academy  founder Stewart Whicker said.

“We have 10 accredited coaches and kids can learn the basics or develop their game further with private lessons.”

The club also provides free online video lessons on their website marconitennis.com. Lessons include several tennis tips like how to hold a tennis racquet.

The  Academy has  two synthetic grass and three hardcourt lighted tennis courts.
