Davis Cup captain Alistair Hunt recently moved to the town and was offered a coaching role by long-time Aspiring Tennis Club coach Perry Crockett a little over a month ago.
Hunt was more than happy to take the job.
"Perry and the club have been fantastic in accommodating me here. I'm loving it, the people are fantastic.
"It's nice to be back coaching. I probably haven't done this for about three or four years," Hunt said.
Mr Crockett said despite his background, Hunt was keen to help anyone willing to learn.
"He's keen to do as much as he can. He's coaching everybody, which is nice.
"You'd think someone like him, who's the Davis Cup captain, might just want to coach the good players but he coaches the little kids, ladies, just whoever wants to learn, really."
With the addition of a top coach, Mr Crockett hoped more people in Wanaka would take up the sport.
"Just getting the word out as well [that he's here] might bring in some new players and get more kids to join. There's definitely been more adults coming to coaching due to having two coaches," he said.
Hunt said he and his wife were considering opening a hospitality business later this year, although nothing was in place at this stage.
