About Me

I am a tennis player, coach and umpire who absolutely loves the athleticism, resolve and fortitude needed to play well but loves the camaraderie and social nature of tennis even more.

Teaching Style

I am a USPTR/USPTA instructor who loves tennis and loves seeing others enjoy this awesome sport as much as I do! I specialize in working with youth (USTA 10 and Under, USPTR Level 2, USPTA Professional), but young-at-heart students of all ages are my racquet too! Whether you are an adult new to the game, a parent who wants their child to learn a sport with lifelong benefits or someone who just wants to tune up their game, I've got you covered and look forward to hearing from you!

Student Feedback

Noel is very knowledgeable and detail orientated. He communicates very well to get his instruction across to improve my game. Noel is very focused on improving my skill level and technique. I would highly recommend him for any age or skill level.

Tom A. - April 27, 2015

Noel has been doing a great job with our daughter. He connects well and has solid instruction.

Michelle W. - July 28, 2015

Noel has done a great job with my daughter. Her technique and confidence have improved. She has fun and looks forward to the lessons.

Michelle W. - August 3, 2015

My son had group lessons with Noel, between 10-12 kids at a time. They were one-hour lessons. He has been my son's coach for week lessons now. My son is not very athetic, but he loved learning with coach Noel. He is a great coach. He is very encouraging and likes to make it fun, but he is also serious when he needs to be. I would recommend him to anyone. You won't regret it.

Sierra A. - August 7, 2015

Coach Noel is an awesome tennis coach. My kids enjoyed his instruction. He is patient and gives good instructions for all to understand and follow. It was my kids' first time with tennis lessons and after 2 weeks of instruction, they had the basics down and were looking good and confident! Coach Noel is very professional, likable and attentive.

Georginna T. - August 7, 2015

My experience with Coach Noel was amazing. I thought that he was really involved with everybody in the class. He would tell me in full depth how to improve my serve. I think I would recommend Coach Noel to people because he is nice and easy to talk to. I like that the lessons were different almost everyday. I also like that he made us do laps of some sort to get us warmed up.

Mya M. - August 6, 2015

It's hard work but worth it.

Christopher B. - August 6, 2015

Coach Noel is really good with the kids and starts with the basics. He makes it fun and educational. My daughter loves taking lessons from him.

Natalie G. - August 6, 2015

Excellent teacher. Noel is very positive and patient with the kids. He is always laughing and he enjoys his job.

Debbie C. - August 6, 2015

Coach Noel has been teaching my daughter for the last 3 summers. He has provided her the opportunity to play in a team environment while still giving her individual attention to make her better.

Maria B. - August 5, 2015

For the last 4 summers, Coach Noel has given my son and daughter tennis lessons. They absolutely love going to his classes and learning how to play tennis. We have seen huge improvements in our kids ability to control the tennis ball, return and rally. We really like the way Coach Noel engages with the kids, his energy, his use of the time, and especially his control over the class. We look forward to the next lesson and watching our kids get better.

Allen B. - August 15, 2015

Noel was the perfect instructor for my 13 year-old son. He is patient while still encouraging him to develop his tennis skills; especially his serve, and increasing motivation. My son vastly improved after just a few lessons. Noel teaches strong basic skills, and helps provide a good foundation for those looking to play tennis competitively, which is the goal for our son. I would strongly recommend Noel as a coach to any age player.

Javier R. - September 13, 2015

Noel has been a wonderful coach to our 17 year-old daughter. He took the time to get to know her and her tennis abilities, and he has created lessons to grow her skills. Noel knows how to talk to her in a positive manner, yet push her to try harder and work harder. Noel participates in the whole lesson with our daughter, even conditioning. This shows his level of commitment to coaching. We have seen an immense growth in her skill level since she began working with him. We were so lucky to find Noel.

Christi W. - September 16, 2015

My game is slowly coming back! I have not played tennis in over 15 years and Noel has reminded me why this game is so great. Lessons are a combination of fitness and tennis drills. We have recently added game play. He is an overall excellent coach.

Ajay G. - October 14, 2015

Noel is very patient, easy to work with, and knowledgeable. I would recommend him.

Christine S. - October 19, 2015

I could see improvement in my game right away! Noel gives enjoyable and effective lessons.

Millar K. - February 3, 2016

Can't say enough good things about Noel and my first lesson. Highly recommend!

Christine H. - June 6, 2016

Noel has been a fantastic coach! He is exactly what I was looking for when I had no idea where to start. I'm a 28yo physician with a very busy schedule and he was able to accommodate my needs without a problem. Lessons were fun and upbeat - Noel has a great personality and is very relatable! He always adapted lessons to what I needed to work on most and gave very specific feedback to help me improve. He also involved cardio when desired. I would recommend him to both kids and adults.

Jessica B. - March 24, 2017

Another fantastic lesson with Noel. He does a great job of helping me learn.

Richard G. - June 19, 2017

Noel, was fantastic he helped both my friend and I get much more comfortable on the court! We had a lot of fun and I couldn't recommend a better coach!

Vaneesa P. - January 30, 2018

My husband and I have been taking training sessions with Noel. I must say that he knows what he is doing so well!! We really enjoy them and learn alot from him! He is very professional, punctual and communicate very well through messages. Thumbs up Noel. We look forward in doing more training to reach a level where we can play on our own:-)

Shahla - November 20, 2017

Great instructor!

Owen C. - August 28, 2018

Noel has helped my daughter improve by 200%. He knows exactly what drills to use to help improve all aspects of her tennis game. Thanks Noel for all the effort you have made to make my daughter a much improved tennis player. Cross your fingers she makes the varsity team this year.

Christine T. - August 28, 2018

Noel is a wonderful tennis teacher and coach for my 8-year-old son. Noel is patient, energetic, and fun; he knows just how to motivate and encourage young children who are new to tennis. Noel is easy to communicate and schedule with, and considerately accepts Venmo, too! I’d recommend Noel as a tennis teacher without hesitation!

Denise M. - August 29, 2018

Coach Noel has really helped my 16 year old son improve his game. He is always on time and scheduling with him is easy. My son enjoys his teaching style and enthusiasm. He provides great feedback and his lessons have a nice balance between drills and game play. We would highly recommend Coach Noel!

Laura M. - August 29, 2018

Noel is an amazing tennis coach. He’s really awesome with kids too and makes them feel comfortable right away. My daughter has been doing private lessons with him for a year now and really enjoys her lessons with him. He is able to make the lessons fun and each lesson ends with her feeling more motivated and excited for the next. Thanks Noel , Layalee (Jennah’s Mom )

Layalee H. - August 29, 2018

Have you been thinking about getting back on the court after a 20 yr hiatus? I had! I knew the tennis ‘itch’ needed to be scratched and was SO glad I found Noel! He has been encouraging (um...not in shape at all) yet pushed me to rise to the occasion. Did I have an overhead hit me square in forehead after I didn’t track it correctly? Sure. But, he’s stuck with me and I can feel I’m close to being league-ready again - just after a few months of weekly lessons. Noel truly is fun and amazing to work with - do yourself a favor and go for it!!

Heather S. - August 30, 2018

Noel is an excellent instructor; helping each player reach his/ her maximum potential. For me, that meant adding more power to my hitting and serving, as well as working on strategy. Noel is always positive and also provides lots of warm-up exercises.

Pam M. - August 30, 2018

Great at drills or match play.
Flexible with client’s schedule

Highly recommend!

Joseph R. - September 1, 2018

Noel is exactly the kind of teacher we were hoping to find for our 9-year-old daughter. He is a real tennis pro who knows how to explain the sport to young students in a fun yet clear way. He instills a love for tennis and a real appreciation for physical activity in his students. He is kind and funny, responsive and always helpful. We are grateful to have him in our daughter's tennis life.

Andra Z. - August 30, 2018

Noel is a fantastic tennis coach. He helps my kids stay active and focused and they love him and have so much fun. They are 10 and 8 so sometimes that can be a challenge but he gets it done! I decided to take lessons myself and have been having a blast. I recommend Noel to anyone young and older.

Margarita H. - September 13, 2018

Noel is just awesome!

Great technical instructor, a great motivator and just fun lessons. Have improved so much since we started.

Very flexible always keeping in touch. Can not wait to get back on the courts soon.

Mark V. - November 9, 2018

I've taken a bunch of lessons with Noel as an adult getting back into tennis. Ever since my very first lesson, he's been able to pinpoint areas for improvement and give me small tips that immediately make my game better. I also appreciate that he's willing to work with me on the schedule and location of our lessons. I highly recommend taking lessons from Noel!

Steve L. - July 22, 2019

Noel is very positive and encouraging. His instruction is clear and targeted. My game improved immediately. Would highly recommend

Heather - July 22, 2019

Noel worked with my son to help him get ready for high school tennis. He was fantastic! The lessons were organized down to the minute. Everything he had my son do had a purpose. Noel was incredibly positive and encouraging, yet still pushed him to always put forth his best effort. I would HIGHLY recommend Noel and plan to work with him again next summer.

Wendy P. - July 22, 2019

Over the past years, I have tried a number of instructors but was not able to find a good fit, until now. I appreciate how thoughtful he is about the drills for each lesson, and his effort in asking for input and suggestions about lesson focus. He is always professional, positive and encouraging and checks in throughout lesson to make sure there is clarity around his feedback. I look forward to our lessons each week and continue to see improvement in my form and play.

Wendy M. - July 26, 2019

Noel keeps the lesson engaging and positive. He is an outstanding teacher and very responsive to what we needed. I was amazed at how quickly my son and I were able to pick up skills. He does a great job with both kids and adults.

Brigitte F. - June 18, 2020

I have never played tennis in my life and was terrified that I'd make a fool out of myself. Coach Noel made the first lesson a lot of fun and we (I'm taking lessons with my daughter) learned a ton in a very short time. We both walked away super jazzed to learn more. Noel was encouraging, calm and very knowledgeable. We can't wait for our next lesson!

Michelle B. - June 18, 2020

Noel is a lot of fun and very patient with me and my friend as we are both complete newbies to tennis! In just 6 lessons he has made a huge impact on our capabilities. We are so thankful that we found him!

Riley W. - July 14, 2020

Very friendly, scheduling lessons is super easy, and my son thinks he’s an awesome coach. HIGHLY recommend coach Noel!

Larry B. - July 16, 2020

I was a bit nervous signing up for lessons, as I had never played before. Noel has made the whole experience really great. Not only is he knowledgeable and kind, but he is also funny. He has a way of making you not feel self-conscious even when you mess up. I would highly recommend him.

Anna C. - July 16, 2020

As a beginning tennis player, Noel has been excellent. He teaches fundamentals clearly and makes the time fun! He’s patient, encouraging and I feel like I’ve improved dramatically in just a few lessons. I’d highly recommend him as an instructor.

Andrea B. - July 18, 2020

Noel is kind, professional and caring. He is a natural coach. We are greatly humbled that he took us on as clients. I highly recommend him

Jamie J. - September 17, 2020

Noel is patient, skilled, and very thorough! I'm a beginner, and Noel has a great lesson plan for me to advance. I would highly recommend Noel to tennis players at any level.

Aly R. - October 6, 2020

Noel is exactly what you look for in a coach. He’s positive, extremely knowledgeable, and is great at consistently adapting his feedback throughout the lesson. After being out of the game for over ten years, Noel has helped me get back on the court and improve my game week over week. He LOVES this game and his passion is contagious.

Ian J. - October 15, 2020

Noel is awesome - patient and gives great tips to improve your game. We had a blast during our lessons!

Alyssa R. - May 24, 2021

Noel is the best! My girlfriends and I are complete beginners and taking lessons with him weekly. He's so knowledgeable but also keeps it light and enjoyable. We laugh so much at our lessons and leave each week saying "that was so much fun!" He's teaching us the skills we need to enjoy this sport for years to come. Highly recommend!

Amanda V. - June 17, 2021

Noel Williams is simply a fantastic tennis teacher. I suspect that he’d be a good teacher at anything - as teaching is a gift and he has that gift. Noel knows how to assess a student’s needs, how to encourage them, how to grow their abilities. He is an endless source of positive energy, a real one of a kind teacher. We feel so lucky to be able to work with him. Our daughter has grown dramatically in her enjoyment of and confidence in tennis thanks to her lessons with Noel.
