Teaching Style

Technique and timing are the keys to any activity or sport. Good fundamentals, combined with targeted repetition, keep you physically healthy and produce nice-quality strokes. Every social player wants to have fun hitting the ball, not chasing it around picking it up. When both players are controlling the ball and keeping it consistently to their partners, they are able to further develop their abilities and enjoy seeing each other grow as tennis players. (And it’s always fun to finish up the day with a little competitive play and trash talk amongst friends!) lol

My “Play-to-Learn” approach has saw countless recreational friends establish strokes reliable enough to enjoy the level of which they chose to participate. These are the secrets of high level college players and pros as the developed, no matter what level they played or competed. No matter what a students goals are, teach them as an individual and be sure to promote a fun atmosphere that slows them to enjoy their learning experience. So Let's go baby! lol and see you on the courts!

Student Feedback

I played tennis when I was younger, but hadn't played in about 15 years. I was nervous getting back into it, but Bryan made it easy. He was patient with me but pushed me at the same time. I really couldn't have asked for a better coach to get me back into the game. Thanks!
