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 players' 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. With kids, I make lessons fun, keep them motivated, & start them off with great fundamentals. I'm adaptable, so let me know what you're looking for & I can customize something that works for you. Thanks for reading & talk soon!
