Galati said he had family from Brunswick and had played there a number of times, so he was looking forward to coaching at the club.

Growing up in Australind, Galati has competed in competitions throughout the South West before moving up to the State level and competing in Perth.

In 2012 and 2013 Galati represented WA in the School Sports State Team.

Galati said he loved the individual nature of the sport with development and improvement down to the player.

“You have to want it if you want to get better,” he said.

Galati said junior development would be his focus, looking to help young players take their tennis as far as they want.

“It’s hard to progress when you’re a player from the country and I know that first hand,” he said.

“I want to help them progress to that next stage and help them get to that next level.”
