HI, my name is Nicholas. I'm a French tennis coach with 10 years of experience in France, Denmark and the UK.
I'm also a 5.0 USTA tennis player who still likes to compete and strives to improve himself.
Tennis is my passion, whether it's following the pro tour, trying out new strings and rackets or learning new techniques! Nothing would please me more than to be able to transmit that passion to you.
I am really open minded and recognize that there are a lot of ways to hit a shot. I will not force you to do something that does not feel right, nor will I refuse to teach you a certain technique you'd like to master. That's why I actually became an expert in two handed-forehands and ambidextrous style, as I had clients who felt this worked better for them!
Every lesson will start with a small chat so we can decide together what the lesson's content will be. We would usually then work on feeding drills for 15 minutes, then try to apply the new technique in a rally situation. Then, we'd either work on the serve or the return, and then work on some tactics by playing some points together.

I started playing tennis quite late, in my 40s ish and I was very lucky to have Nicolas as my first coach! He helped me to learn quickly and my progress in tennis was great. He is a fantastic teacher!
