About Me

Hi, my name is Karl. I was born in Jamaica & as a boy growing up there, I wasn't exposed much to tennis. I would read newspaper articles about local & international tennis. What got me interested in the game was actually seeing people playing when I was around 12. I moved to the Bronx in August 1967 at age 13 and then was able to see many televised matches & instructional tips that were included. I wasn't able to get a racket in my hands and to actually get on a tennis court until my freshman year in college at Arizona State, 1973 - 1974. I took 2 classes from a great instructor and began playing and practicing as much as I could. From the beginning, it all came easily for me probably because I've always been very athletic but I think watching all those instructional tips had planted something in my subconscious. Fast forward to 2007 when I got the opportunity to assist a teaching pro in conducting tennis summer camps & subsequently group lessons with children & adults. In 2012 I achieved Instructor level certification with PTR and hope to improve on that in 2014.

Teaching Style

I try to impart information and make the lessons fun. I don't believe in constant coach chatter. I try to encourage good strokes and make corrections where necessary.
