Hi, my name is John Crawford. I've been teaching tennis for over 15 years and been playing for over 20. I teach the modern game (technique and strategy) while specializing in mental toughness. I competed at the national level in juniors and played division I and division III tennis at Birmingham-Southern College in Birmingham, AL. I'm currently the Director of Junior Development at Pine Tree Country Club. However, I work with all ages and levels. I enjoy all sports in general, specifically Alabama football and baseball. I emphasize awareness. The more aware you are, the better player you will become. This means having a better knowledge of all phases of the game. I can help you with whatever you need. The structure of my lessons directly depends on what is best for you and your game. I personally guarantee not only an improvement in your tennis game, but other areas in your life as well.
