About Me

My passion for tennis during my adolescent years allowed me to grow both leisurely and professionally. Tennis, a very popular sport in the Caribbean, is restricted to only private country club members. Determined to learn this great sport, I trained alone and later had the opportunity to train with coaches learning different techniques styles. This then exposed me to the challenging world of tournaments including the ITF Junior tournaments, Davis Cup, Futures and Panamerican games. The more I played the game and mastered my skills , the higher I wanted to climb on the ladder of becoming the best player, hence this drive and passion permitted me to enter Florida's top best three players. Furthermore, the same desire exposed me to a similar result in Vancouver and Montreal, Canada. Tennis also opened other doors from which I enrolled into becoming an instructor, obtaining certifications in both Canada and the United States including but not limited to USPTA Professional Level 1, USTA Certified High Performance Coach and frequent updates by attending seminars.

Teaching Style

I believe in a cooperative coaching style, which is a stepping stone for leadership through structure definition as well as allowing for instructor/player interaction.

Student Feedback

Carl is by far one of the best coaches to play with. Since we started to train he has raised my level significantly and fixed all the flaws in my game. Besides for that he’s a very nice guy and always treats everyone with respect. Finally, if you decide to have him teach you there is a 100% chance you will get better.

This is by far the best pro I have ever used. I have been around tennis for over 20 years, and have never met a pro that goes over the top in every single lesson like Carl does. His experience and knowledge of the game has helped me get to the top of my game. He is true professional at what he does.

Carl is more than just a coach! His passion for the game itself is not only eminent but is influenced upon his students which rank from toddlers, to teenagers to adults. He understands his client and motivates them in the right direction. His capability, responsibility and loyalty towards his clients are all assets in which his service is unparalleled. Carl, is a true professional, definitely one instructor with whom improvements are assured. He is by far one of the best coaches that I have had!

Carl is the best tennis pro I have ever worked with! I have been playing with him for 8 years. He is constantly challenging me and inspiring me to work hard to improve my game. Every lesson I feel like I learn something new and he has kept me in top physical form. He expects a lot of commitment to the game and is all about hard work. I can't say enough about him as a pro and as a person. He has become like family to me over the years.

I have been fortunate to have been playing with Carl for over 5 years now. In each lesson, he makes sure to incorporate all aspects that are needed to be successful. We practice ground strokes, volleys, serves, and returns as well as the tactical part of the game. I truly believe that my game has vastly improved. I would definitely recommend Carl to others. I think that he can help any player get better whether it is a beginner, intermediate, or advanced player. He can teach the correct form and knows the tactics of the game very well. His teaching style incorporates fun with games while also focusing on details to improve. He is very amiable and genuinely wants his students to get better while having a good time. I always look forward to our lessons and definitely recommend him to others.
