Teaching Style

I love tennis and love teaching more. I want my student to have fun and achieve their goals. If that is just a better serve or moving up a level or beating their brother finally. Quality is better than quantity …learn to play correctly instead of just hitting a lot balls. Do it right and improve faster.

Student Feedback

I've played a bunch of drills with Billy. He's encouraging, makes it fun, and explains things well. He has helped me up my game, and I really appreciate his passion for tennis and coaching.

I’ve been taking private lessons and going to team drills with Coach Billy for a little over a year, and in that time he’s helped me improve both my technical and strategic skills very much. I even got bumped up a level from 3.0 to 3.5. His team drills are fast-paced and fun, he teaches with a positive attitude and encouragement, and he very obviously loves the sport. He also coached my nephew into the high school State Championships in just 2 seasons, and actively facilitates connection and growth within the local tennis community and as the coach at Monarch HS. I highly recommend him!

Billy has been the most instrumental tennis teacher I’ve ever had. He really has such a wealth of knowledge about the game, strategy, form etc and I moved from a 3.0 to a 3.5 in large part because of him I’m certain. I highly recommend him to anyone!

Billy is a great teacher. He has given lessons to my teenaged sons, myself, and my tennis team. He can teach all levels. He is able to quickly identify something you are struggling with and help correct it. He has really helped my team to improve court position and movement during doubles play. He keeps drills moving but still gives plenty of pointers. He is a lot of fun and has really improved my game and my sons’ games! Highly recommend lessons with Billy!

Billy is a terrific coach for both teens and adults. He has been instrumental in helping my team mate and I improve our skills and better our game strategy. He also does great with my teen daughter who has some coordination issues. He is patient and supportive and has helped her gain confidence and skills. I highly recommend.

Billy is a great coach! He has been coaching our family for a couple of years and everyone has made significant improvements. Our high school daughter has gained confidence in her game and now has an awesome forehand ground stroke, thanks to Billy. His group lessons are super fun and he does an amazing job of keeping things moving & fun while still giving individualized feedback.

Coach Billy is an incredible teacher, making tennis fun, dynamic and interactive across a variety of formats, ranging from private lessons, to small groups to larger drop-in classes. My kids and I all take lessons/classes with him and in my experience, he has a unique blend of working on strategic, physical and mental aspects of the game, which are all invaluable to improving.

During the course of a lesson, he will keep things moving very quickly, spending just enough time on a drill, before moving on to a new one. In a 1 hour class, we will typically do 4-5 drills, targeting different, frequently arising match scenarios or working on a specific set of skills. Throughout the lessons, Billy will point out when certain shot choices or the execution weren’t ideal and why, while also highlighting well played points.

I learn something new every time I play with Billy and can’t recommend him highly enough for both adults and kids. My daughter’s game has completely transformed since starting with Billy about a year ago. He has a way of helping everyone push themselves to reaching new heights and being their best tennis player, while keeping it fun along the way.

Thank you Billy!
