Hi, my name is Doug. I've been playing tennis for over 30yrs and enjoy teaching the game. I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area. I played the #1 seed for my tennis high school team and won the doubles championship for my high school team. I also played a little in college and qualified to compete in the state tournaments. I will be PTR certified ( within the next couple weeks which will supplement my current coaching abilities. This certification teaches the foundation for learning tennis and develops the essential coaching fundamentals for a successful player. I realized I really enjoy teaching this sport after introducing my 7yr old daughter to the game. Sometimes it's a challenge to keep her engaged so I try to make it fun for her while having her learn. This is what incorporate into lessons I teach. As an option, I can bring her along if it will make the sessions more enjoyable for students around her age.
