About Me

I am all about taking games to the next level through enjoyment and hard work. I am efficient and effective but also believe in having fun - you learn three times faster when you combine laughter with repetition. I relate well with people and families, probably because I have 3 kids of my own and an amazing wife who keeps me happy. I see playing Tennis as an opportunity, an experience, a challenge, and most of all, a moment with yourself immersed in a culture so unique that you instantly become addicted. I have 5+ years of experience working with K-12 kids, 3+ years with adults and 2+ years of working with collegiate level tennis players. Fun combined with discipline and hard work is a great reward for every person.

Student Feedback

So far, I've had 5 lessons with Bellal and I'm very pleased with his easy-going and yet very thorough and efficient approach to training. During our first lesson we went over my objectives and he took a short video of my ground strokes, serves, body and footwork. Then the actual work started - polishing my unit-turns, forehand, backhand, ball-tossing, volleying etc. And I thought I knew a thing or two about all these techniques… now we've moved on to different combinations of strokes and volleying and to the strategy part of the game! After each class he'd send me an e-mail with an overview of our progress and things that I should focus on. Which proved to be very helpful. So far I'm very pleased with my progress and would highly recommend Bellal to anyone who wants to learn the game or take his skills to the next level.

Bellal was not only knowledgeable about tennis fundamentals and technique, but he was enjoyable to rally with. Despite his busy schedule of coaching high school varsity kids, he made time for me for our first, and only, lesson. I would highly recommend Bellal to others of all skill levels.

I come from Serbia where is tennis one of the most popular sports. I used to do practice there as well with a tennis Coach, but with Bellal I feel more confident than ever. I have been working with Bellal for only 2 days but honestly I can say that he is a really nice man and professional. Perfect communication, fun and good an experience. Personally, I strongly recommend him for all of you!
