About Me

Hi, my name is Bill. I just moved to San Diego from Oakland in March '23. I will be coaching at Monte Vista High School in Spring Valley, Balboa Tennis Club, and various parks in Chula Vista.

* Master Professional
* Contributor (#1 Sports Instruction Website In The World)
* My many years of coaching has led to great experiences with beginners up to 6.0 level players (college level).
* B.S. in Industrial Psychology from CSUEB, Master's Thesis in Education.
* Published 11 books available on Amazon, Visual Training for Tennis, The Art of Coaching High School Tennis, The Athlete Centered Coach

All lesson fees include court reservation fees, to avoid surprises.

Over the years, it has been a pleasure to learn from more than 15 coaches who have had #1 players in the world, but even more importantly, with those Tennis Professionals who really understand how you feel when you are coming to a lesson. With over 200+ USPTA continuing education credits, I am fairly certain I am among the top 5% of Tennis Coaches in the surrounding area.

It's all about YOUR best Tennis. So I take the time to discover your learning style and which style of shots is ideal for you. I never teach a cookie-cutter approach. Everyone is different and has different goals; we work together so that you can have your most rapid advancement in the sport.

Teaching Style

My lessons are about learning the true fundamentals of how to excel at the game and enjoy it. I see some improper fundamentals being taught, which leads to frustration and difficulty. I am very happy and so is my student when they come for their first lesson, it usually leads to an 'A-ha' experience.

Aziz (Verified Review)

We couldn't give Bill a high enough review. Not only was he great with our daughter, but he was great in communicating with the parents as well. We look forward to rebooking with Bill in the near future!
