Improve your game

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.

Student reviews

"He was generous and patient. I asked lots of questions although it was after class he answered kindly. It was perfect."
"I have tried several tennis coaches throughout my life (over 20 years playing tennis), and I can attest that Forrest has been one of the best. His dedication and patience make him stand out amongst the rest. Excellent understanding of tennis’ mechanics and strategy and very good communicating recommendations/corrections to your game. Definitely recommended for all levels of play."

"Forrest got my two "resistant-to-tennis-lessons" sons on the court and immediately engaged them -- kept a great pace and kept it fun. In one hour, they started to see improvements & therefore felt good about it. It was an AWESOME kick-off to 12 lessons. Could not have been better. Thank you, Forrest!"
"Great - Forrest gave me useful tips to improve my technique. He arrived early to the lesson and was ready to go as soon as I arrived. I am very happy with the instructor."
