Improve your game

Upon payment you will immediately receive your instructor's contact information. They will be in touch within 24 hours to schedule your first lesson at a time and location that’s convenient for you.

Do you have any questions?

Can I book a trial lesson with you?
Most people purchase a minimum of 6 hours to start so I have enough time to look at your game and make a few quick fixes or develop a plan based on your goals. If for some reason you aren’t happy, PlayYourCourt can switch you to a different coach. If they can’t find a coach you like, they will refund you the remaining lessons. But if you would still like a trial lesson you can call 301.575.6112 to set one up.
How can I contact you?
Once you have booked your lesson package, you will immediately receive my contact information. If I don't hear from you, I will call you to finalize your lesson details.
I have a court I want to use, can you come to it?
Yes, if you are within my service area I am happy to come to your own private court or a public court of your choosing.
I don’t have a court in mind, where can we play?
I can provide several options in your local area that will be convenient for you.
Can you teach more than one person at a time?
Yes, I offer semi-­private lessons for up to five students at once. Each additional player is only an extra $10.00 per hour.
When can I start?
As soon as you’d like!
What if it rains?
If it rains we'll reschedule for a sunny day! It won’t be counted as one of your lesson credits.
How do I schedule and pay for my lesson?
You can book directly through the website or feel free to call us at 301.575.6112.

Student reviews

"I have worked with John over many years and have found him to be passionate and knowledgeable. John lives and breathes tennis and has so very much to offer from sound technical advice to advanced strategies and is equally competent in singles and doubles. John has decades of top level experience to draw from and uses many varied approaches to inspire and teach his students. John believes in sound and deep relationships with students and they respond in turn. John is an outstanding communicator and couples this with a fervent drive to have students succeed. I highly recommend John and if you can spend some time on the court with him, you will just be better for it. He is simply great!"
"Coach John coached my son during his High School career and went on to play Division 1 Tennis at University of Iowa. John knows the game of tennis very well, is a great motivator, knows how to be successful and what it takes to be a champion. I would highly recommend Coach John to any one interested in wanting to improve their tennis."
"Coach John is great at seeing the big picture and the little details at the same time. He can help you come up with strategies to play different types of players as well as fine tune small problems in your strokes. He has lots of tennis experience and also keeps up with the current pros. And he has lots of different drills for all the various kinds of players out there! He is very upbeat and happy to work with and you can tell he enjoys being on the court!"
"Very professional, great manner and will be very happy to use John's services again."
"John is very nice and patient my son likes him"
"John is remarkably good. He is challenging without being overwhelming, encouraging, knowledgeable and accommodating. Nothing but the best marks for him!"
"John brings solid.experience and ability to the court. He teaches strategy and court play, has a phenomenal work ethic, and truly enjoys sharing his knowledge with his students. He has helped Nick as both varsity assistant coach and now through private instruction. John's training has been instrumental to Nick's progress. John has my highest recommendation. "
"John is an exceptional coach. Our son, a beginner, leaves each lesson with new information on how to enhance his play and is always looking forward to the next lesson. Our family is very pleased with John's professionalism, dedication, knowledge, enthusiasm, and teaching ability. We recommend him highly."
