About Me

I have been in the tennis industry as a player, coach, club manager and owner for more than 30 years. During this time I have coached high school tennis teams, professional players and every level in between. I enjoy teaching and working with players of all ages and abilities.

Teaching Style

I can be the fun guy on the court with the younger players or recreational players and much more of an aggressive coach with the advanced players. We all learn through repetition of motions and muscle memory, so the key is to make the process as educational and as enjoyable as possible.

Student Feedback

Terrific instructor. Knowledgeable on all the mechanics of the ground strokes and the serve. Outstanding acumen in detecting flaws in all aspects of the game. Very patient, and fast to encourage when strokes are well executed. I am coming back to tennis after a twenty-year hiatus, and I must say I lucked out with the perfect instructor. I highly recommend this tennis teaching pro without reservation.

Bruce is great. My wife and I both took the lesson at the same time and he made it fun for both while also meeting our individual needs.

My daughter had her first lesson with Bruce. What was especially rewarding was the way Bruce took some time to evaluate my daughters skills and immediately began to make corrections slowly and in a way she could adjust without being overwhelmed. She wants to be pushed and raise her level of playing and I feel Bruce is a good fit for her. He will give her the added skills she needs to perform at her best for her senior year of high school.
