Upon payment you will immediately receive your instructor's contact information. They will be in touch within 24 hours to schedule your first lesson at a time and location that’s convenient for you.

Do you have any questions?

Can I book a trial lesson with you?
Most people purchase a minimum of 6 hours to start so I have enough time to look at your game and make a few quick fixes or develop a plan based on your goals. If for some reason you aren’t happy, PlayYourCourt can switch you to a different coach. If they can’t find a coach you like, they will refund you the remaining lessons. But if you would still like a trial lesson you can call 301.575.6112 to set one up.
How can I contact you?
Once you have booked your lesson package, you will immediately receive my contact information. If I don't hear from you, I will call you to finalize your lesson details.
I have a court I want to use, can you come to it?
Yes, if you are within my service area I am happy to come to your own private court or a public court of your choosing.
I don’t have a court in mind, where can we play?
I can provide several options in your local area that will be convenient for you.
Can you teach more than one person at a time?
Yes, I offer semi-­private lessons for up to five students at once. Each additional player is only an extra $10.00 per hour.
When can I start?
As soon as you’d like!
What if it rains?
If it rains we'll reschedule for a sunny day! It won’t be counted as one of your lesson credits.
How do I schedule and pay for my lesson?
You can book directly through the website or feel free to call us at 301.575.6112.
