Student Feedback

Achille was a wonderful coach. As a first time tennis player in my 40’s Achille gave me a quick understanding of fundamental drills with hands on object oriented lessons. He quickly had me hitting the ball, doing foot work, and working on top spin form. I look forward to continued lessons and highly recommend A bike to anyone wanting to gain a better understanding of the game from a coach with a practical hands on approach.

Achille was quick to respond to my inquiry and made himself available to fit my schedule. He was patient and thoroughly described the techniques he wanted me to implement and gave me lots of feedback. It was a great lesson!!

Achille has an amazing ability to explain the tennis strokes and how they should be done properly. I have never had any tennis coach explain things to me so easily. He is also extremely patient.
