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.

Student reviews

"First of all, Gerald contacted me immediately after I paid PYC for lessons. I took my first lesson a couple hours after our initial phone call. After some footwork warm-ups, Gerald turned on the tunes, made sure I stayed relaxed and he gave me something to focus on with each drill. He has a calm demeanor which helped me stay calm and focus on the adjustments he provided. A couple times he offered analogies that helped me visualize a technique adjustment and that was helpful. He also made sure I stayed well hydrated during our lesson. Gerald is attentive, knowledgeable and cares about the improvements you want to make to your tennis game."
"Gerald is great! I haven’t played in awhile so he has been a big help getting my swing back, fine tuning my mechanics and helping with my overall game. Very friendly, knowledgeable and personalizes each session to your needs/goals."
"He's a great teacher and has great patience with the lesson. Keeps you focused on just a couple things which is nice. Very helpful so far!"
"Gerald has given my kids two lessons so far, and we are very pleased! He is wonderful with kids, knowledgeable, and incorporates a great variety of drills. They are very excited for their next lesson."
"Gerald is a top professional. He not only explains to our son what he can do to improve his game but backs it up with drills and play. Gerald is always in communication with us and is always available for questions. We will definitely continue to have him coach our son."
"Fabulous Lesson He came very prepared with great equipment to work on topspin and Volly game. We were able to play a few games and work on strategy"
"Gerald has been nothing but a wonderful tennis teacher to me. I love working with him, and every time I go to tennis I am excited to play a sport I’ve learned to love and improve my self as an athlete all thanks to him. Gerald has taught me so much about tennis, from forehands, backhands, and volleys, to simply the mindset I should have when approaching how to play, I’ve learned multitudes of tips and techniques from Gerald to make me a better tennis player. Gerald possesses traits that coaches I’ve had in the past did not carry. He is patient, and never gets mad when I make a mistake, but rather tells me what I can do to correct it. He’s also kind, and extremely knowledgeable. I think Gerald is a great coach, and anyone would be lucky to have him as their teacher."
"Gerald is a fantastic tennis coach. I could see improvement in my game right away! He is very knowledgeable, detail oriented, and communicates very well. I would highly recommend him for any age or skill level."

"My daughter just started taking interest in tennis and her first lessons were with Gerald. If you are considering lessons for your child, young adult or if you just want to polish up your game to get better, Gerald is your guy! He was great with my daughter. He is patient and calm but at the same time keeps you on your toes and isn’t afraid to make you work!"
"Gerald is amazing! His ability to connect with my son on the very first coaching lesson was better than I could’ve ever expected. Gerald is extremely patient and has a very calm demeamor which makes working on skills less of a task and more fun. My son can’t wait until his next session."

"Gerald is a fantastic teacher who makes our lessons fun. He is very patient with our teenager, while giving her the guidance she needs in a way she understands (not an easy task). He also teaches my husband and me sometimes together and sometimes separate, and we both have seen tremendous improvement. He is professional and flexible. I would highly recommend him for all levels, group and individual."
"I am getting so much out of my lessons with Gerald. I will sign up for a new set soon. He knows exactly what he's doing and analyzes your shot very well, but he makes it fun while you're getting better. You can't go wrong taking lessons from Gerald. Highly recommended."
