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. You will also receive an email with all of my contact information after you book.
Can you teach more than one person at a time?
Yes, I offer semi­private lessons for up to five students at once. Each additional player is only an extra $10.00 per hour.
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.
Do you offer group lessons?
Not at this time, but private lessons are a great way to learn the basics so you can develop the proper technique and excel faster. However, you can always bring your friends! Each additional student is only $10.00 extra.
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 at 301.575.6112.

Student Reviews


"James is a fantastic coach..i have learnt so much in just 3 sessions..highly recommend him. likely the best coach in the south bay."

"Very good. Got lots of specific technical stroke mechanics advice, which is what I was looking for. We worked mostly on forehand, a little on serve. I will continue to work with James."
