What my students are saying...
"While I might have started to play somewhere else, Smoky Mountain Tennis Academy is where I truly learned how to play tennis. Steve was my coach for basically 10 years and he grew my game exponentially. Not only did he teach me tennis lessons, but he also taught me things about myself and helped me grow as a person. Steve, as well as all of the other SMTA pros, treated me with great respect and put everything they had into the game. To this day, I still call Steve a friend, and I owe my tennis success to him and his expertise"
"Smoky Mountain Tennis Academy makes the sport of tennis fun and available to everyone. SMTA offers high quality instruction for the child and adult beginner to the top adult players in the state and juniors in the South. The Academy does this by offering membership rates that are affordable to everyone. SMTA is a Tennis Academy where the focus is on taking your tennis to the level of your commitment. Steve brings a wealth of experience from his playing days to his coaching time on the ATP tour. I can say this - because SMTA has been my tennis home for the last twelve year. Tennis is great at SMTA!"
"I grew up at Smoky Mountain Tennis Academy and I learned how to play tennis from Steve, as well as how to use those lessons in my life outside of the game. Everyone at SMTA has always treated me like family, and that is why I will always consider it home. Many juniors play tennis, but we at Smoky Mountain learned how to play. My time at SMTA enabled me to achieve All American status at the University of Tennessee and also helped me be a successful college coach at Tennessee and Purdue. I owe all of that to Steve and the coaches at SMTA."
"My kids love their coaches and work hard to please them. Even when the coaches cannot be near, they are always willing to offer a pep talk before a match or even strategy during a split set break. I cannot truly express my appreciation to the coaches for the impacts they have made in my children’s lives. Steve has helped to create at least 3 really good tennis players...and at least 3 really good kids."
