Blair Tait

Blair joined EBA in 2017 where we found he was incredibly determined to develop as an athlete.

He’s a valuable member of the team and his hard working attitude helps to encourage others around him.

He currently trains with us 2-3 times per week with additional technical sessions arranged around tournaments and school work.

ATHLETE’S VIEW

I have been training with EBA for 3 years now. They have helped me develop many technical skills and also taught me how to stay calm during matches which has definitely helped me to win tournaments.

The training sessions are fantastic, and the coaches are very encouraging and supportive and they have helped me to improve my all round game. I have made many friendships with coaches and most definitely other players including my doubles partner that I met at EBA.

PARENT’S VIEW

“When I first took Blair to EBA it was very clear to me that Greg and his coaches were very organised and Blair has had some excellent coaching and support since then.

He is a very driven and motivated boy and it’s been great to see his progression to winning some big tournaments.

Most importantly, Blair has great fun at EBA and always has a smile on his face when I pick him up at the end of a training session.”
