My name is Danial Stredder and I have been a Tennis Coach since the age of 15.
Before COVID-19 struck I had already decided to leave my career with Tennis Australia and support my Wife's executive career in Newcastle NSW. One week into moving house and WHAM! just like that lock down hit and bye bye potential work opportunities. I figured if I was ever going to have a crack at starting my own business venture then it was now. Tennis has always been a part of my life from back-packing Asia to working in China and Europe. Accompanying me throughout my journeys was my passion for working with disadvantaged groups.
Enter ACCESS Tennis
ACCESS Tennis is about breaking barriers to Tennis to ensure that any individual or group can enjoy Tennis as a sport for life. For years I have watched and worked in the 'standard model' for Tennis delivery and thought to myself, I really want to make an impact in peoples lives by doing things differently through my passion for Tennis. Finally I followed my heart and decided to combine the standard model I knew and make it the driver for my idea to deliver Tennis to the disadvantaged. One path moving forward was a promise that ACCESS Tennis would put a percentage of profits made back into supporting the community in ways that help people in life and in Tennis.
Fast forward a couple of short months...
ACCESS Tennis has now delivered Tennis in Schools and partnered with a school, purchased blind/low vision tennis balls and even a wheelchair so that I can really adapt my programming and adopt the environment my wheelchair players are so familiar with. I am now registered with Special Olympics Australia and Hunter Valley as well as a trained Tennis in Schools deliverer for Sporting Schools Funding. ACCESS Tennis has even supported Tennis business operations though consultancy work and on court coaching.
I do not expect that everyone can relate to My Story but I'm sure we all agree that in Australia our culture is about giving everyone a fair go and that is precisely what I want to do.
