My name is Melanie. I grew up playing tennis in Atlanta competing on the junior circuit and held state, southern, and national rankings. I played intercollegiate tennis at the University of West Florida on scholarship. While in Atlanta I played competitively through The Atlanta Lawn Tennis Association and coached adult and junior teams. I am a certified tennis professional and am currently employed as Staff Pro at Centennial Sportsplex Tennis. I am a member of the USTA and a USTA Junior TeamTennis approved coach. I have taught previously in Nashville at Old Natchez Country Club, Lipscomb University Racquet Club, Sequoia Swim & Tennis and Belle Meade Country Club.
My teaching style starts with understanding what the student would like to achieve and/or work on. I will cover at least three areas of your game concentrating on stroke production, footwork, spin technique and strategy during a one hour lesson. I specialize in stroke production skills, serve technique and competitive skill sets.

Melanie is a great coach! She communicated well with my 7 & 9-year-old sons. Highly recommend.
She has a great personality and is very patient. She improved my forehand drastically in a short amount of time. She is awesome at showing me how to improve my strokes by demonstrating it for me. I would absolutely recommend Melanie.
Melanie is a great instructor! I've taken 3 privates and 2 clinics from her and she is great at narrowing the focus to develop a strategy that will improve a specific skill. She is able to point out opportunities for improvement without being too critical and gracefully suggests modifications to get you where you need to be! She is also very patient, which is great because I don't always get things the first time! If you're on the fence on whether or not to begin taking tennis lessons, just do it! You'll be glad you did!
Really outstanding. I have three young girls that are brand-new to tennis and she immediately put them at ease and began teaching the kids (and parent) in an easy to follow format.
