About Me

I teach semi-open stance technique. My approach is ideal for children and women since most of the power needed to generate shots comes from the legs and hip rotation. I have been playing tennis for over twenty years and I enjoy teaching this wonderful game to all ages and skill levels.

Teaching Style

Modern stance, Semi-Western grip.

Student Feedback

Great first lesson. Preston gave us a foundation of the basics that we could continue to practice in between then and our next lesson.

Dan S. - January 28, 2019

Needed us to find a tennis court. Impatient coach. I regret to have booked the course.

Jason - September 18, 2018

Preston has been great and we highly recommend him as a coach. Both boys love the creative games he has and he is very patient with him.

Matthew A. - April 21, 2015

Great experience and very knowledgeable.

Bruno V. - July 15, 2018

We just finished our summer lessons for our two boys (5 & 8). Preston is FANTASTIC! Our boys loved going to the lessons once a week and learned a ton. He makes the lessons fun and engaging, all the while my boys are learning how to play tennis. There were huge improvements at the end of our lessons. I Highly recommend working with Preston!

I should have done this earlier! All of these years of picking up tips on tennis here and there with no solid technique, tons of frustration. Then I met Preston! I have topspin now and my serve has changed and improved as I now understand the technique and logistics of how they are done. My two-handed backhand has improved. He changed my follow through as well as other things. These sometimes subtle changes have made all the difference. I'm thrilled and grateful for lessons with Preston. Plus, he's just a nice guy that has an interest and passion for teaching.

Preston was an excellent teacher for my 2 sons. We highly recommend him and would use him again.

Ramin A. - February 2, 2016

Preston is the best tennis coach I have ever had. I had twenty lessons with him in the last summer. He was a professional and a very pleasant person to take lessons from. Always in time for the sessions. I have improved my tennis skills so much since my lessons with him. Never had the problems with my strokes since then. His instructions prepared me to become a member of a tennis club. Actually, I have got so many complements on my tennis skills after Preston's coaching.

Irina W. - February 2, 2016

Preston was an excellent instructor. He was patient, knowledgable, and great with our two little ones. I would recommend him to anyone looking for lessons.

Molly M. - February 2, 2016

I initially set up lessons with Preston for my 8 year old Daughter who had never played. Preston did a fantastic job working with her! He was able to gage what style and lessons were the best fit for her personality. She had a blast and the added value was she was learning to play tennis right before our eyes! We worked with Preston all summer and midway my husband I enjoyed his style and technique that we started taking lessons from him as well! My husband had never played and I played years ago. Preston's range is great in that he was able to understand our goals and work with us at different levels to allow us both to grow and have success playing. I would recommend Preston for any age player and any level of play. He is an excellent coach and we are excited to see him again this upcoming summer!

Preston had been very professional and attentive to my daughter's ability to provide lessons as needed . She has gained valuable technical skills that will help her in the future

Eric D. - July 16, 2016

Great guy, always on time, professional and optimistic, even when my daughter gets frustrated. He has great methods and keeps it fun!

Jennifer W. - August 18, 2016

Preston is a responsible and professional coach. He is so friendly and patient. My kid loves having lessons with him.

Wendy M. - June 22, 2017

Preston is a very patient coach and makes you feel confident and comfortable!

Dolores C. - March 25, 2018

Preston is a very nice coach. I was a beginner with zero experience before. After five lessons, I gained solid basic skills and feel more comfortable to rally. I feel growing by leaps and bounces.

He is very sharp about identifying the problem and then training accordingly. He is also kind and very patient to guide

Chengliang - May 6, 2018

Great experience taking tennis lessons from Preston. He has been very flexible on schedule and patient all these weeks. He makes you feel comfortable and very encouraging which helps building confidence.

Dolores C. - June 11, 2018

My kids love the lesson with Coach Preston! He immediately understood what they should work on for a few sessions. We can’t wait for next lesson!
