About Me

Hello. My name is Chris, and I've been coaching for about 18 years. I became a USPTA teaching pro after college and ended up coaching at multiple clubs around the country. I've worked with all ages and levels in group and private settings. Tennis has been a great experience for me, and through my lessons I hope to spread my passion for the game and inspire students to be the best they can be.

Teaching Style

I tailor my lessons based on the needs of the individual. If you're a beginner, we'll focus on basic strokes and simple drills to build a great foundation. For intermediates, we'll fix those technique issues that are holding you back and learn some new strategies & patterns of play. For tournament players, I'm a great hitting partner and can give you the challenge you need to win more matches and force improvement. And with kids, I strive to make lessons fun, keep them motivated, and start them off with great fundamentals.

THINGS TO REMEMBER
I teach players ages 8 and up outdoors only.
Semi-private and group students must be similar ability.
No parents on court during kids' lessons please.

Great job Chris! I appreciate your coaching on tennis strategy, shot execution, and your patience with me in learning a new forehand grip.

John F. (Verified Review)

Chris was the perfect instructor for me. As an adult beginner, I was intimidated to start a new sport. Chris was incredibly respectful of my skill level and took the time to understand how I learn best to help me improve each and every lesson. I definitely recommend Chris to anyone looking to learn, improve or tighten up their game. Overall outstanding experience!

Chris was a great coach. Very patient and approachable. My son made significant strides in the 10 weeks that he had lessons with Chris before the weather got too cold for tennis outside.

Eric (Verified Review)

Christopher is a very patient instructor and our twelve lessons were all extremely fun. He is very professional and taught us how to play tennis step by steps. Whenever I had questions, he always answered them in depth and gave examples. He is overall an amazing instructor.
