Gianna has been coaching at the Vines Tennis Academy since July of 2020. She teaches the younger kids on Thursdays and has thoroughly enjoyed it as she finds it rewarding to watch the kids improve over the term and seeing the excitement on their faces as they enjoy participating in a great sport. It has also challenged her to work on her leadership and communication skills as she works at looking for the best coaching approach as they are so little.
Gianna had the privilege of taking part in a Slazenger Girls Interschool Tennis Tournament recently as part of a school program where she represented her school against other schools. In addition to this, she will also be taking part in winter pennants in the upcoming season.
