We offer Private, Semi-Private lessons (2 people), and Group lessons (3 or more). We do not have any set “group clinics” that you can join, but feel free to book lessons with as many people as you want. Each person you add to a lesson package purchase is only an additional $10 dollars. So taking a lesson with a friend will not only allow you, especially if you are a beginner, to find your comfort zone if you have a friend by your side, but you will also save on your hourly lesson rate.

Lessons are typically 1 hour long. However your lesson package is flexible and the hours purchased can be used to schedule for a variety of lengths.

Of course you will not be responsible to pay for any lesson missed due to the weather.

Our tennis lessons are taught by coaches who have been thoroughly screened by our hiring team. The same can’t be said for coaches not going through our system. Not only have our tennis coaches been confirmed as qualified but they have also passed a criminal background check ensuring a quality lesson that is also safe.

Customer Reviews

We connected with Jesse through the Nike Tennis Camp program. He was able to give supplemental private lessons to my daughter, mostly focusing on her serve. We were delighted that when Jesse returned from college, he was available for lessons. Jesse structures lessons in the classic manner: warmup, groundstrokes, volleys, serves, and finishes with live point play. He wastes no valuable time and has only two ball pickups: midway through and end of lesson. He talks about strategy and technique during the ball pickups. Jesse focuses on developing the complete player: technique, physical movement, and mental toughness (or playing smart)....

Robert is good coach. He is very particular about theory of tennis and details. He cares about each student, you can feel it during the tennis session. He also provides some videos to get better idea of certain things and see it in slow mode. He can teach you from the beginning or can help you to improve certain skills, like back hand or serve. I like to work with him.

- Lenar N.

A very positive and patient coach. He helped improved my ball striking dramatically from day one.
