I'm a USPTA Certified Professional tennis instructor with 23 years of teaching experience in California, Florida and North Carolina. My teaching style is very comfortable - I teach by telling and showing, using imagery to help students grasp the concepts. My approach is to break down tennis into: "Receiving" - footwork, preparation and court positioning, and "Sending" - stroke production, anticipation, shot selection, tactics and court positioning. I am very observant and patient. My style makes learning fun, easy and relaxed for my students, whether they are children or adults, Beginners, Intermediate or Advanced-level players. How fast do YOU want to get good? (r)

    Your coach will come to any court of your choice. Not sure of the closest court? No sweat, they will recommend a convenient location.

    We ask you questions and hand pick the perfect coach based on what you are looking for. We are so confident in our coach selection process that we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If we can’t find the perfect instructor for you then we will refund your unused lesson credits.
  • Can I start with just one lesson?

    You sure can, although we offer a 100% money back guarantee so most students start with a lesson package to save money since there is no risk.
  • How do I get in contact with my instructor?

    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.

    Absolutely! Each extra person is only an additional $10 per hour. Adding friends to your lesson is a great way to cut down on your lesson costs.

What my students are saying...

  • "Coach Allen works well with players from various backgrounds - beginners, rusty, seasoned. He is very patient and has a positive attitude when it comes to imparting knowledge to the students. I had 12 sessions with Coach and saw a noticeable improvement a few sessions in. Would easily recommend him to anyone looking to improve their game"
