Meet Our Clients

I wanted to thank you and the broader team for organizing the kids to watch the WTA. It was a great experience and they were very lucky to be able to go as a part of the team and really experience world class tennis!

YB

My son has had the privilege of working with the Savitar coaches at UWC for the past 7 years. Niki Tippins and her team of coaches – Johan, Roberto and Patrick have done a brilliant job of teaching him life skills. I thank the Savitar coaches for their dedication to its players and the sport.

PV

Thank you so much to you and all your staff for a wonderful camp. Hugo loved every minute of it and was keen to go every morning despite the heat so that was fantastic. I loved yours and the coaches organisation and commitment. Greatly appreciated!

BB

I am so impressed with everything you have put in place and your passion for tennis, the programme and wanting tennis to progress really shows. Thanks for everything you are doing.

ID

We are absolutely delighted with your program. The kids will be playing a lot over the summer to keep the level up.

IC

I have had an amazing learning experience with coach Wena at Savitar. She’s skilful, funny and most importantly patient. Everyone learns at a different pace. It is very important that a coach knows how to tailor the lessons to suit each individual. Besides picking up tennis skills, I have certainly enjoyed the learning process. And because I enjoy it, I have more and more interest in the sport. I did not sign up tennis lessons to become Novak Djokovic. I wanted to have fun and coach Wena made sure of it!

CJ

We came for the trial class on Saturday and it was a great success. After my son’s enthusiasm being at sub-zero levels and tears on arrival, Adam managed to turn Oliver around and he absolutely loved the session.

KE

We just completed our set of 6 classes yesterday – I enjoyed myself tremendously! The team at Savitar is really professional & very nice to learn from. Just 6 sessions & I already feel I have improved a lot.

RT

Just to let you know that my kids thoroughly enjoyed the tennis camp and would definitely sign up for similar camps in August.
