About Me

Hi, my name is Thomas. I started playing tennis at the age of 6 with my Dad who was a Tennis Pro. He cut a Jack Kramer tennis racket in half and putting a grip on it. I then started playing ,training,and taking lessons at Holiday Park. I stayed in that tennis program for 6 years and loved every minute of it. I went to Northeast High School in Ft lauderdale and was ranked#1 on the tennis team. In 10th grade I went to Riverside Military school and won the Georgia Invitation. I have given group, children, and adult lessons but focus mostly on individual lesson. I appreciate training those players that might have given up on the game for a number of years often looking to get back into shape and even maybe back to competitive ladder play.

Teaching Style

I start with communication, getting to know the client, becoming in a partnership towards determined goals. If you are a beginner we start with the grip then move onto the mechanics of how to develop a swing pattern. I utilize different drills by feeding out of a basket moving from forehand to backhand, working on different shots such as crosscourt, down the line, the slice, the setup of the volley to the actual volley. I specialize in teaching ground strokes, approach shots, and chip and charge volley. I always finish a lesson by working on different serves, hitting a whole bucket of balls.
