About Me

Hello. My name is Chris, and I've been coaching for about 15 years. I became a teaching pro after college and ended up coaching at multiple tennis clubs across the country. I've worked with all ages and levels in group and private settings. I continue to enjoy coaching and spreading my passion for the game. I tailor my lessons based on individual needs. If you're a beginner, we'll focus on basic strokes and simple drills to build a great foundation. For intermediates, we'll fix those technique issues that are holding you back and learn some new strategies & patterns of play. For tournament players, I'm a great hitting partner and can give you the challenge you need to win more matches and force improvement. And with kids, I strive to make lessons fun, keep them motivated, and start them off with great fundamentals. I'm quite adaptable, so let me know what you're looking for in a coach and I can customize something that works for you. Thanks for reading & talk soon!
