About Me

Hi, my name is Dave. Have you thought about brushing up on your tennis game, or maybe taking some classes to see if it’s a sport you would like to get into? Or perhaps, you have children who have shown an interest in tennis? I offer service that are all-in-one services offering group and private individual lessons, camps, tournaments and teams for kids, teens and adults. Lessons for adults range from beginner to advanced, and are split into group, semi-private and private settings. There are three levels of classes for children (ages 3-5, 5-10, and 10-17), and each is tailored to different skill levels. If you’re a more advanced player, I also offer private or small-group settings where tournament-level players can work on more refined areas of their games. “Dave is a great tennis coach,” said one reviewer, “He is personable, a great player and very caring. I would recommend him for your kids as well as for adult players.” If you’re looking for some training, doubles partners, or just others of your same skill level, I can help.

Student Feedback

Really great! I was surprised to be hitting as well as I did - he was great with instructing while we were playing and was able to make corrections to my swing on the spot.

My son is 7 1/2 years old and is loving his tennis experience with Dave. I think this is due to Dave's effective and patient style of communicating technical aspects to children. My son looks forward to the lessons and is quickly learning a proper forehand stroke. The location is convenient, Dave always gets back to me in a timely manner, and he has been flexible with my schedule. I feel fortunate that I found him. I think he is probably one of the best around.

I'm thoroughly enjoying my tennis lessons with Dave. He certainly knows what he's doing. He's helping me develop a nice slice back hand and I love the power of my forehand since he's taught me the proper grip and stroke.

I would most definitely recommend Dave. He explains everything well. We continue to review what he's teaching me each week. He won't let me get away with bad form. I truly appreciate his expertise.

Thanks Dave.

Dave has been very patience, helpful and supportive.
I really appreciate his ability to motivate while at the
same time work with me at my level.

Dave has a strong knowledge & skill of tennis and is a pleasure to work with.
I enjoyed my lessons and feel I have improved greatly in form and ability. Dave is easy to talk to and communicates va text quickly.. He also has the tennis ball machines that assist in learning!

I would recommend Dave to anyone who wants to learn or improve their game.

I can say without hesitation, the experience with Dave have been outstanding on every level. We're three lessons into the 14 session package we signed up for, and my 2 kids love it! From the great instruction and basic tools to build on -- to the massive volume of strokes they get in every session (Dave brings TWO ball machines), this experience exceeds my expectations. We tried group lessons before, but one-on-one with Dave is money much better spent. The personal attention is strong, and Dave's classic approach to teaching a great foundation is exactly what I was looking for to get my 9 and 7-year-old immersed in the game. I'm pumped to keep the lessons rolling. Lola and Cruz can't wait to "get back to work" every day because it's so much fun! Thank you, Dave -- you're helping fuel my children's passion and enjoyment of tennis!
