Hi, my name is Steve. I am a USPTA certified instructor and Tennis Pro at Ocean Trail Racquet Club in Jupiter, coaching two ladies doubles teams. I have been playing tennis nearly all my life. I was a four year high school varsity player, and co-captained the team in my senior year. I grew up in RI, and taught tennis during the summers at several clubs while attending high school and college. I moved to South Florida to attend the University of Miami, After spending 30 years working in local TV News, I now teach tennis and supervise a fitness center. I've twice won the City of Palm Beach Gardens Men's Doubles Tennis Tournament playing with my brother Greg, as well as several other tournaments.
I start by teaching the basics, grip, footwork, backswing, contact points, follow through. I like to vary the drills to get a student used to moving to the ball. I believe in the USPTA diagnosis and cure methodology. I like to make lessons fun and informative. I encourage my students to be an active participant, with lots of movement and hitting a lot of balls.

Steve was prompt, friendly and a great communicator. He knew exactly what I needed to work on to improve my game and I had fun doing it. Great lesson!
I get a great workout, intentional and precise instruction, as well as someone to keep me on track when I get distracted! I would highly recommend Steve for your lesson needs.
I have had six lessons and have felt that I have improved consistently. Steve gives great verbal cueing and instruction with modeling and repetition along with encouragement and patience. I will use him again next season I'm down here. Thanks Steve!
Awesome Pro- will continue working with Steve.
