Coach - Craig Campbell
Craig Campbell

I would like to introduce myself as your personal tennis coach. My playing background saw me ranked as the number One under 18 junior in South Africa, before leaving on a tennis scholarship to the University of Miami. There, I graduated with a Business Degree, and played on the tennis team where we rated in the top Ten colleges in the U.S.A.

I then played the A.T.P. Tour for seven years, making the top 200 in the world, for both singles and doubles. An added bonus as a touring tennis professional was traveling the globe and tapping into different cultures, which provided me with wonderful insights that have helped me subsequently when working with tourists.

I built on these experiences to successfully coach all ages and levels of player over the years, and have two formal diplomas, which qualify me as an internationally certified tennis instructor.

I look forward to helping you with your game, or acting as a hitting/practice partner while enjoying you’re stay in Cape Town. Having traveled far and wide, I can tell you it is very difficult to beat Cape Town as a holiday destination. Come and enjoy!
