About Me

Hi, my name is Don. I have taught tennis from beginner to tour level. Learning tennis should be fun and with that in mind, students will get more out of the lesson. Taught on the tour as a doubles specialist. USPTA uses my methods for their doubles clinics. I am a High Performance Instructor, as well as a certified high school tennis coach for the state of Florida.

Teaching Style

I am considered expert in doubles and will construct the lesson in a manner that will give you the information needed to reach the next level. You will learn the difference between club doubles and competitive doubles. You'll also learn the proper formation for doubles, game plans and shoot selection that will give you the winning edge.

Student Feedback

Don is an exceptional tennis coach and teacher! Being completely new to tennis and a bit apprehensive, Don made my lessons enjoyable and a great workout. I have learned so much in such a short time and greatly appreciated his patience with me. I have a new love for the sport and plan on continuing my lessons with Don. Thank you Don for giving me the fundamentals and skills to enjoy and participate in the sport of tennis.

I've undergone tremendous improvement after a handful of lessons with Don. He's a world class pro! My husband was so impressed by my progress that he's now taking lessons with Don.

I took six hours of lessons with Don over the course of 4 days. The private lessons really provided a fantastic opportunity for me to improve quickly. We worked on (almost) all the basic strokes and he helped me improve a lot on each. He sees when you haven't picked up an aspect of a stroke and both repeats and uses learning tools to help it sink in. I liked the learning tools - they are a clear visual reminder.
Don was wonderful and has a good sense of humor. He obviously knows tennis and how to motivate. He praises good work, but also tells you when your shot is "ugly". I definitely picked a fantastic teacher and I look forward to my next visit to get involved with his teaching more!

Excellent knowledge of how to improve groundstrokes. Looking forward to next session. Kept it fun too.

While I only got to work with him for one lesson, because of his move for his family, I feel that I took a lot away from the lesson. He is very knowledgeable and personable. I wish I could have kept working with him!
