***While I am proud to be a USPTA Elite Professional, there is nothing elite about me or what I do. I teach people to play tennis. Done it for many years and have knowledge and experience to help people enjoy tennis at every level, but it is the interaction with great people I value most; tennis is the connection. You will always be most important in our time together.

Here's What I Do:

Tennis players from age 8 to adults welcome. Specializing in beginners having a ton of fun while getting a rock solid foundation built to take you wherever you want to go, intermediate players (3.0-4.0) getting the special stuff that is generally missing in order to move up, and teaching middle & high school players how to win more matches. It's that simple!

Unapologetically use the Real Ball so you only need to learn Once!

Never underestimate the importance of having an experienced teacher even in the beginning stages as sound fundamentals (how, what, why) are the basis of a reliable, effective and long-lasting game. Learn to actually play using your strokes to accomplish that mission rather than as an end in themselves. 

Really looking forward to meeting you and helping you play this great game.
