    dnta Location

    Liston Tennis Club

    dnta has been operating from Liston Tennis Club since it was founded in 1987. Liston Tennis Club is the premiere tennis club in the western suburbs of Melbourne. The Liston Tennis Club was established on its current site in Commonwealth Reserve in 1926 on land that was previously occupied by a Timber and Forage Yard. The establishment of the Liston Tennis Club at that time was an integral part of the Commonwealth Reserve becoming a place of waterfront public recreation. Since that time, the Liston Tennis Club has been an important recreational facility for local residents.

    "Dane Nebel is one of those select few coaches who can impart on you such great enthusiasm for the game of tennis. Whether having lessons with Dane as a 10 year old or now as a 28 year old, the energy and passion Dane has for the game is incredible. Whenever and wherever I am playing tennis the tennis skills Dane has taught and continues to teach me as a tennis player are always front of mind. He is a fantastic coach and I highly recommend him. He is an asset to the game of tennis."
