Student Feedback

Coach Ray, has helped my 9 year old daughter develop into a player that he envisioned. We have seen great improvement in Hannah this past year. She went from a beginner level player to a tournament level player within a year. His Dynamic of high intensity and the way he builds technique has really worked for us. He made sure her racquet situation was the right fit which also made a big difference as well. We live in Kennesaw and commute 3 days a week to Brookhaven for Practices. All & all we are very happy with the services we have received from Coach Ray.

I have been coached by Coach Ray for over a year now. I started with him when my game needed the most improvement. I started ALTA as a 3.5 and rose to a 4.0 while maintaining a winning record. He is a very experienced coach that has all the resources to continue to grow. Also, I use him as my stringer due to him being able to get great deals from his sponsorship.
