I started playing tennis my sophomore year of high school. Junior and Senior year I played 2nd singles. Senior year I won team MVP. I went to play for my community college team for 2 years, Rowan College at Gloucester County. Freshman year was a All American and National Champion. Sophomore year I was team captain. None of this matters though!

Footwork- the 6 basic steps that every successful tennis player needs to do

Technique- proper grip and swing for every shot

Client Reviews

Derek is a great coach who is positive, encouraging and patient. The two of us did 10 sessions with him, and we really felt like he showed us how to improve our skills individually, from the basics to more advanced. He has a logical progression to his lessons and keeps things interesting with specific tips and by adding new things to work on each time. Also, scheduling with Derek was always a breeze. It was great to see how we were improving each time we play. If you are looking to have fun while learning tennis, schedule with Derek today!

Derek was responsive to texts, prompt and gave a great lesson. He has a great demeanor and is a great teacher.

Coach Derek is a very enthusiastic and well-behaved coach. He's a coach who strives on improving on any of your weaknesses and turning it into your offense. My 2nd serve was my weakness when playing tournament, in just one week, Coach gave me an immediate solution. I recommend this coach for all skill levels!

Coach Derek is a great coach. My son is learning so much from him. My son can't wait for his next session to practice what he learned from his first session!

Coach Derek is an Excellent coach - he taught some good forehand/backend techniques to my 14-yr old son. He threw many balls for practice and has the patience to work with teenage kids. I will recommend Coach Derek.

I am extremely pleased with Coach Derek. He is patient and informative. He gave great tips and asked how I was feeling through the whole session. The best benefit of it all was before my session my Fitbit read no steps because I was on the couch most of the day. After my training session I decided to check my steps and I had done 4 miles😀! And I was having fun!!!! I'm sure my tennis game will improve this summer!
