WNBL/NBL1 PLAYER & SKILLS TRAINER
Tenaya Phillips has always been known for her incredible basketball talent in Australia, having played at Dandenong Rangers for several years. Continuing her career with her youth side, Tenaya gradually progressed through the junior ranks at Dandenong and made herself a standout with the Rangers’ SEABL side (South East Australian Basketball League). Playing with and against a myriad of top talent in the country, Tenaya helped her SEABL side to a threepeat between 2010 and 2012, a rare feat in basketball or any sporting code. After playing basketball at a representative level, taking part in the Victorian Metro side at the national championships for the under 16s, 18s and 20s, she gained a scholarship at the Australian Institute of Sport in 2011. In 2012, she also participated at the FIBA Oceania Under-17 Championships in New Caledonia, where she was part of the Australian team that won gold in a stunning undefeated tournament by the Australian Gems. In 2012, she won gold again at the Under-19 tournament in New Zealand, helping the Gems qualify for the Under-19 World Championships. Her impressive skillset and determination eventually landed her 3 years as part of the Dandenong Rangers WNBL senior team, the top division for professional basketball players in Australia. Her performances caught the eyes of other clubs as she left Dandenong in 2016 and signed with the Frankston Blues for the 2016 and 2017 SEABL winter seasons, being named captain of the Blues in her second year. She was also snapped up by WNBL powerhouse Perth Lynx for the 2016-17 WNBL summer season in her first professional environment outside Dandenong. Tenaya currently plays for Dandenong Rangers NBL1, after recently finishing up with the Sandringham Sabres. In addition to playing within WNBL and NBL1, Tenaya also coaches children and teaches them the basic fundamentals. She has extensive experience with delivering 1-on-1 and group sessions, teaching beginners through to elite players.
