Client Reviews

Coach David was great! I booked a session with him for my dad for Father's Day and David was extremely responsive and helpful with booking, and my dad said his session was wonderful!

David is a great coach! I really enjoyed and learned a lot during our one on one session. He immediately corrected my forehand and backhand deficiencies and showed me how to improve my serve. I definitely recommend Dave to all tennis enthusiasts.

Coach David gave my kids (5 and 7) a great week of lessons. He taught all the basic strokes while keeping it fun and engaging - they are already asking for more!

David's a great coach and a good dude. In one session, he evaluated my game (such as it is), determined where i needed the most work, and then taught me a ton about footwork and proper form on my serve. If he's available, i highly recommend him.

My 14-year-old daughter has really enjoyed working with Dave. Highly recommended!!
David was fantastic...patient, gave clear communications, and used the hour efficiently. It was a valuable use of our time and money. I would highly recommend David to my friends and family. We are looking forward to our next lesson!
Enthusiastic coach whose depth of knowledge is apparent with so many aspects of the game -technique, technology, body mechanics, tennis-specific fitness training, etc. My forehand greatly improved in the first lesson-can't wait to get it wired in and then move onto the next strokes.
David did a wonderful job at teaching us all the basics in just one lesson. We could have stopped with just one lesson, but enjoyed our time so much that we are going back for a few more.
wonderful! worked at my pace and with my needs in mind...Also very quick to discern the weaknesses and strengths--even pointed out some things I was surprised to notice myself for the first time after all these years!
Excellent in every way I can think of. David is incredibly qualified in all aspects of the game. He knows the strokes, the strategy, the biomechanics and conditioning.
