My name is Adam Walters and I’m currently studying Economics and Finance at Macquarie Uni whilst coaching tennis. Currently I’m number 4 in NSW for 18 year olds and have multiple wins over top 100 Aus players. I enjoy piano and reading when I’m not playing, coaching, studying or eating! I had spent my whole life in Newcastle until i decided to move to Sydney for uni, but with Dave moving home and having known him for the better part of 10 years, as well as uni moving online, the decision to head back home only made sense. I look forward to these next few years and I’m always up for a casual hit, some drinks or a few sets at the courts!
