Zac Nixon

Head Coach

Meet Zac Attack – Toptenn’s jack of all trades. Zac is energetic, friendly and fun-loving and joins us as a specialists in teaching ANZ Tennis Hot Shots and Teen Xtreme's. 

Zac has played tennis all his life at Tally Ho Tennis Club (both in lessons and club competition) and wants to give grassroots and club level players the same opportunities he had growing up on the tennis court.

Zac’s genuine love for the sport is infectious, and he instantly became a Toptenn Cult figure. Not long into his time with Toptenn Zac was coaching 7 days a week, and trying to give him a day off was akin to pulling teeth. Soon after, Zac was enrolled in the Tennis Australia Level 1 coaching course - where he aced the content and was a favourite amongst mentors. 

You will find Zac most based at Burwood Tennis Club, which is right next to his Uni (Deakin) where he is currently studying Sports Management. 

Off the court, Zac also has an enormous workload in managing junior teams, admin, class scheduling, equipment preparation and much more. 

Be sure to say hi to Zac when you see him, and ask which of his 7 Tally Ho premierships was his favourite.
