Riaan Venter

Head Coach and CEO

I'm Riaan Venter, the proud founder of RVTA (Riaan Venter Tennis Academy) and your head coach with over 30 years of coaching experience. I'm not just a coach; I'm a true family man, and that's the essence of our academy—a place where future tennis stars find a home. My belief in developing tennis skills from a young age has seen over 30 players rise to national and international stardom. For me, this academy is a manifestation of my passions, and nothing brings me more joy than instilling those same passions in the players who join our tennis family. Welcome to a place where dreams take root and thrive.

Colin Powell

Strength and conditioning specialist

I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Human Movement Sciences. I am extremely interested in developing athletes to ensure that they attain their full potential. I have gained experience over my years of conditioning in multiple sports, which has enabled me to become a specialist in my field. I have been part of the RVTA since 2019.
