May be you can give him a call. Here's his details from his card:

    Bunny Ko
    Queensay Golf International
    Shop 219-222
    Shun Tak Centre
    168-200 Connaught Road
    Central
    3521 1030/2865 2632
    Mob: 9528 4679

    Actually I just looked at his card and it says tennis coach. There you go
    Hi Nation,
    Thanks a lot will definitely drop him a call few days later when I am back. I like the shop located in Central! Not too far away!

    Actually I should clarify. His store's street address says Central but it's really in Sheung Wan. Shun Tak Centre is about 5 minute walk on the sky bridge from the Western end of the IFC complex. As francocw mentioned, Victoria Park is in Causeway Bay. To get to the tennis courts it's about a 10 minute walk from Causeway Bay MTR (5 min to get to Victoria Park plus 5 min walk through Victoria Park).

    As for racquets that's a tough question. This Bunny guy sells racquets also so he may be good to speak to. There's a good selection of Wilson, Prince, Babolat, Yonnex racquets to choose from. If you're just starting out look to one of the larger head sized racquets with the thick frames. These are usually quite light and have a high power rating so you're not straining with every shot. Also make sure you get the grip size right - when you grip the racquet you should have 1 finger's space between the tips of your wrapped fingers and the base of your palm. Not too sure if they do this in HK but also see if they have spare racquets that you can take out for a test run. You just don't get the right feel swinging a racquet around in the store.

    Tennis Lessons

    Hi everyone I am actually a certified tennis coach so if anyone is interested in some lessons just private message me or you can email me anytime at [email protected]. I teach over at the Hong Kong Tennis Centre, some other courts in the area are Victoria Park and Causeway Bay. Further away, you also have the Hong Kong's Tennis Association courts in Shatin, but I think they are being resurfaced for the Olympic Games and thus closed. If any other questions that I can help with, don't hesitate to email me :0)

    I would like to learn how to play tennis for the longest time. Hopefully it's not too late for my age- 25 !

    Would really appreciate your advice as I am still new to town. Thanks!
    Hi Darkangel,
    I played squash for 5 years and turn into tennis (semi-pro).
    Have you play Ruby? Easy to learn tennis if you have..
    Would like to play tennis with anyone who can smile.
    we love tennis and wish more people love it,

    Hi there!

    I am looking for a tennis instructor for the coming two weeks. Can anyone recommend me a tennis instructor that provides private tennis classes or in a group of max 3 people?

    Thanks,
    Ilona
