About Me

Hi, my name is Coach Brian Roberts. I am a tennis coach who can not only improve your game but will show you how to have a lot of fun on the court and get you in the shape you want.. Lifelong tennis player and teacher. NAIA player in college at Lubbock Christian University. USTA and World Team Tennis player. A sports journalist covering U.S. Open Series at the Atlanta Open, Cincinnati and Winston-Salem and others.

Teaching Style

Basic hitting skills to the modern strokes. I want my students to have fun, but I also want them to be the best they can be and have the knowledge to advance their game. Often I use a ball machine to work with students from the same side of the court.

Student Feedback

"I signed up for 20 lessons with Brian as a summer, socially-distanced outdoor activity. I had taken group lessons for a couple summers in 2013-2014 (a beginner in my 30s) but felt like I would be starting from scratch now, and set a goal to become a 2.5 player by the end of my package. Well I'm happy to say that, by the end of my 20 lessons, I have surpassed that 2.5 goal and Coach Brian is the reason! With coaching style that is based on positive reinforcement and encouragement, our lessons were highly enjoyable and I could see and feel that I was progressing quickly. Brian alternates between various drills and each lesson we would cycle through practicing ground strokes at the T, from the service line and at the net, serving, vollying, as well as drills to improve my reaction time, form, agility, etc. Brian's training has ensured that I'm not just good at one type of play or stroke and that I will be ready for all styles of game play. I'm so grateful to have worked with him and am completely obsessed with Tennis now!"

A wonderful instructor who is patient and keenly aware of a tennis players strengths and weaknesses. I highly recommend his tennis lessons.

Encouraging and instructive.
In three lessons Coach Brian brought my child from knowing nothing to competence.
And a seemingly good guy, to boot. My daughter enjoys the lessons.

Excellent teacher.
Lots of people know how to play.
He knows how to teach, to convey methods and keep it interesting.
Also, infinite patience with a young teen, who knows everything.
