Hi, my name is Chris & I've been coaching for 15+ years. I became a teaching pro after college & ended up coaching at multiple tennis clubs across the country. I've worked with all ages & levels in group & private settings & continue to enjoy coaching & spreading my passion for the game! I tailor my lessons to each player's needs. If you're a beginner, we'll focus on basic strokes & simple drills to build a great foundation. For intermediates, we'll fix those technique issues that are holding you back & learn some new strategies & patterns of play. For tournament players, I'm a great hitting partner & can give you the challenge you need to win more matches & force improvement. And with kids, I make lessons fun, keep them motivated, & start them off with great fundamentals. THINGS TO REMEMBER: 1) I teach players ages 10 and up outdoors only. 2) Semi-private and group students must be similar ability. 3) No parents on court during kids' lessons please.

    Once you have booked your lesson package, you will immediately receive your instructor's contact information. The quickest way to schedule your first lesson is to call or text your coach and they'll get back to you asap. If your coach doesn't hear from you they'll reach out within 24 hours.

    Absolutely! Our certified instructors regularly work with players of all ages and ability levels.

What my students are saying...

  • "Chris is excellent!"

  • "Chris was a wonderful coach. He gave me lots of options of things we could focus on/try first. So many great tips, drills, and adjustments in just our first lesson. He gave me things to practice at home too, which I appreciate. And a nice guy to boot!"
