Bailey Clark

Assistant Coach

Bailey began her tennis life at the age of 8 when she picked up a racquet for the first time and started training at Topspin Tennis Academy, District Park in Newcastle, in 2011.

She trained there for 5 years, competing in junior tournaments and leagues before taking a break from tennis for a while in 2016.

In 2020, Bailey rediscovered her love of tennis and started training 4 days per week under Head Coach Derek Cagney to get her game back to its best, with a view of commencing a career as a professional tennis coach. During this time, she continued playing tournaments and leagues, as well as working intensively with a local footwork and conditioning coach since mid 2020 which made a dramatic difference to her movement, confidence and overall tennis game on court.

Bailey is about to take the Tennis Australia Community Coaching Course as the first step to accreditation as a fully qualified Tennis Australia Coach Member and professional tennis coach. We are lucky to have such a driven, young and enthusiastic coach who loves helping her clients and seeing them progress to levels they only dreamt of.
