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

"Mishy was very nice and helped my daughter focus on her form."
"very stable"
"Mishy was great! He has good energy and is very patient. I can’t wait for my second lesson with him."
"My son said tennis is his favorite sport after his 1st lesson"
"Mishy is an amazing coach. He notices mistakes right away and corrects them on the spot. I did six lessons with him and I learned and improved so much. He is also very friendly and has good interpersonal skills. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their skills and play a better game in the most time efficient way. .. He is the best tennis coach I've ever had."
"Quickly identified the key elements of my swing to focus on -- after one lesson, my regular tennis partner noticed a big difference!"
"Overall good for a first lesson. The only downside is the court space is limited and the location of the court is not convenient at all."

"I have been taking lessons with Mishy for five months. My game has improved and I have had fun while doing it. Mishy is patient and a *true* teacher; his instruction is spot-on. He is easy to work with and the ultimate professional. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for some tennis instruction--from beginner to advanced, young to old. (I am a intermediate level player, female, age 56)."

"Excellent teacher!!"
"Mishy's great. He really seems to know what he's doing, and he's patient and encouraging. My only quibble is he seems to have more limited availability than was indicated when I bought the lessons."
"The lesson was pretty great. I was taught techniques like how to do the forehand an backhand properly."
"Great Lesson"

"Great first lesson, looking forward to the next!"

"I had the absolute best tennis instructor, Mihaly Szabo. He was my and my kids' instructor. He was patient, attentive, informative, and just had an awesome ability to teach! I would highly recommend him to both adults and kids. If anyone needs to schedule family or individual sessions, he is the best instructor for the task!"
"Great first lesson , Mihaly was very knowledgeable and started with good form and fundamentals. I'm looking forward to continuing my classes and thank you for the encouragement to register for a series of classes. I believe this was a very successful way to begin a new hobby."
"He's great!"
"Mihaly is a great instructor. Very patient and helpful in outlining proper technique. We had an issue finding a court to use, however. Would recommend future students visit their preferred courts prior to the lesson to get a feel for the availability of courts so that waiting for space is minimized."
"Really great. Mihaly immediately tuned into some of my biggest weaknesses and gave me specific tips to help correct some bad habits. Was great exercise as well! Looking forward to the next lesson. "
"The lesson was very helpful and even though it was only an hour of play, I believe that it improved my game in many aspects. My volleying, approach shots, and second serves are improving with the advice from Mihaly."

"Very good. Knowledgable and patient "
"My experience was great! Mihaly was very patient and did an excellent job with his instructing. "
