Michael Parker
Academy Director / Head Coach

Michael is the Head Coach and joint partner of All Champs Tennis Academy. He brings a vast amount of knowledge, which only comes from experience at the highest level possible. His direct and honest approach is very refreshing which creates a great learning environment. Michael also has a very understanding side to him as he himself has had to deal with the ups and downs associated with high-level tennis. He has traveled around the world extensively and has been to all the major tournaments.

He started playing tennis at 7 years old and continued through to the age of 19 years old. He then decided to become a coach and worked at several tennis locations on the Gold Coast. He was ranked in the top 10 of QLD and top 20 in Australia when he was a junior. Michael loves the challenge and it’s a great sport to compete in as it challenges you in every way, mental toughness, physically strong and requires technique. Unlike other sports it is one of few sports that can be played with a team or individual.

He attained his Club Professional – Level 2 Qualifications on the 28thJune 2006 with Tennis Australia, which allows him to coach junior tennis through to adult tennis. He has over 10 years coaching experience and have been here at All Champs Tennis Academy since I started the Academy in July 2006.

He loves tennis and we hope you enjoy the programs and services provided by All Champs Tennis Academy.

Joel Buhner
Junior Development Coach

Hi, I’m Coach Joel. I am a level 1 ACTPA qualified Coach and specialise in coaching aspiring tennis stars from 4-15 years of age. I was first introduced to tennis at the age of 6 when I enrolled in my first tennis lesson. I enjoyed it for a time before going away to try out other sports but eventually made my triumphant return to the sport at age 12 when I started training with All Champs Tennis Academy. From there I enjoyed playing club fixtures and pursuing tournament competitions. By the time I was 16, I found my passion in coaching and teaching what I had learnt to the next tennis stars. From there, I obtained my qualification and have spent the last 4 years at All Champs helping students reach their full potential. I am strong believer in hard work and grit, and always encourage my students to give their all regardless of the result.
