Linda Kelly


Linda Kelly, Director of Kelly Tennis, is a seasoned tennis coach who has successfully operated in the Victorian Tennis industry for 35 years. This success has also been translated internationally in England, Spain, USA & Fiji.

During the last 35 year Linda has not only become one of Victoria’s leading tennis coaches but has also developed a tennis services business which incorporates all of her skills and networks.

One of her greatest skill is to identify with people of all ages and ‘get into their world’ while maintaining high technical standards and a fun and enjoyable approach to the game.

As an effective leader of people her effervescent personality is infectious and she uses this to focus around events and tasks so she can be relied on to achieve excellent performance from both herself and others. She has a passion to succeed in every endeavour and a ‘can do’ attitude which brings with it results rather than simply a whole lot of activity. Testament to this is the number of successful Eastern Region competition teams that Linda has coached in her 21 years with the Canterbury Tennis Club.
