Tennis Coach Francois at Xmas!

François is our Head of Performance Coaching at Elly Shearman Tennis Coaching

As part of our exciting newsletter we will be asking all our coaches for 5 things you probably didn’t know about them…and first up is our coach François Du Preez!

François is our Head of Performance Coach at Elly Shearman Tennis Coaching. François joined Elly’s team as her husband and has been her coaching mentor since 2015. François brings over 20 years experience and knowledge and is in charge of performance level tennis. Here are François’ 5 things you probably didn’t know about…

1. I was in the army in the armoured core division where I was a gunner on a tank with wheels.

2. One of my favourite foods is a cheese toastie cooked on a fire – you should give it a try (with parent supervision of course).

3. I am a plane spotter.

4. I am from Cape Town.

5. When I lived in Cape Town I spent most of my time surfing and kitesurfing.

If you are interested in Performance Coaching, François has tennis lessons for both adults or juniors, as individual tennis lessons or in coaching groups. Get in touch to find out more or check our 2021 coaching schedule.
