From watching his mother play tennis to becoming a top Australian junior, Wayne Hannah's devotion for tennis has become a love that will never end. As an 11-year-old student at Mundingburra State School, a few of Wayne's friends introduced him to tennis, but little did they know he would become a top junior tennis player, playing 'Age Titles' throughout Queensland and New South Wales.
As an adult, Wayne travelled the world, playing and winning a number of tournaments. According to Wayne, the biggest name he has ever beaten would have to be former Davis Cup Captain, John Fitzgerald, when he played against him in a satellite tournament in Newcastle.
Wayne has gained extensive playing and coaching experience both nationally, and internationally. However, these days Wayne has more of a passion for coaching, rather than playing, and has held positions with Tennis Queensland such as Regional Director of Coaching for North Queensland, and North Queensland Regional Coach.
Two of Wayne's most outstanding Tennis Townsville coaching pupils have both played in the Australian Open and Wimbledon Grand Slams - John-Patrick Smith and Lizette Cabrera.
