Tristan Venables Joins Men's Tennis Staff

Sept. 19, 2012

ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia men’s tennis head coach Manuel Diaz has announced the addition of Tristan Venables to the staff for the 2012-13 season as a volunteer coach.

Venables attended and played tennis at the University of Denver before earning a bachelor of contemporary arts degree from Edith Cowan University in 2009. While at Denver, he played the No. 1 position and was named the team’s MVP in 1997-98.

From 1999-2012, he served as the head coach at Wembley Downs Tennis Club in Perth, Western Australia, which has an enrollment of over 400 members. He played State League from 1995-2012 and was part of the National League Finals Team held at the Australian Open in 2012. In 2009 he was one of 16 coaches given Tennis Australia High Performance Coach Qualification status.

“Tristan is a terrific addition,” Diaz said. “He brings a wealth of experience and fresh new ideas to our staff. He has been very well-received by both our players and coaches, and with the year already underway he is doing a fantastic job. We’re already seeing the benefits of Tristan’s work with our team.”

Venables visited UGA while coaching in 2005, where he met his wife, Jessica, a Georgia graduate.
