Do you or a family member need a little extra attention? Private lessons can be a great way to speed up the learning process. Private lessons are designed to learn or improve groundstrokes, net game, serve, footwork, tactics and strategical skills for adult or youth tennis players in a one-on-one format for 60 minutes.

  • Proper stroke's fundamentals and techniques.

  • Singles and doubles strategy and tactics.

  • Court positioning.

  • point construction and shot selection.

Clinic for children ages 8-10. The  program is designed to introduce the fundamentals of tennis. Players will learn the correct mechanics of each stroke, proper court positioning, and movement, as well as sound strategies for future growth and development. All basic techniques will be reinforced constantly through coordination exercises, competitive fun games, and singles & doubles play. 

The clinic will be centered primarily on the use of red, orange and green dot balls that are 75% 50% and 25% slower than the regular yellow ball respectively.

To ensure that the starter children learn to play the game quickly and easily, I will implement the "Tennis 10s" teaching format from the ITF (International Tennis Federation) and the "Net Generation" from the USTA.
