Elise Yeo

Coach and Hitting Partner

Coach Elise’s journey with tennis began in her childhood, where she fell in love with the sport. Spending hours on the court, practising tirelessly and competing in local tournaments, tennis became a big part of her life. After a sabbatical, she returned to tennis at 17 and found her passion for the sport burned even brighter than it did before, pushing her to become a certified tennis instructor.

To Coach Elise, tennis is more than just a game – it’s about values like respect, discipline, and adaptability. She believes in creating an environment where players respect the sport, their opponents, and each other.

Before each session, Coach Elise assesses the players’ strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement to design a customised training plan. During the lesson, she offers guidance, encouragement, and feedback to help players improve. To keep her players motivated and engaged, Coach Elise incorporates goal-setting and visualization techniques. Serious stuff aside, Coach Elise makes sure to spice up her lessons and keep it enjoyable by incorporating variety and challenge into activities that she plans.
