Client Reviews

Louis-Philippe is a fantastic instructor. He has a very well trained eye for spotting inefficiencies and bad habits, and really did a great job giving me corrective progressions to keep my mind focused on what I needed to adjust without overloading me with information. Louis-Philippe has a very encouraging coaching style that keeps you engaged and actively concentrating on whatever you’re working on in the moment without getting frustrated or discouraged.

I came back to tennis after a decade hiatus and had a lot of catching up to do on muscle memory. I was around a 4.0 when I stopped, but 10 years and 50 pounds later I was sitting at more of a 2.5-3.0 because my consistency was so low and my bad habits were amplified by being out of shape. We spent the full session on groundstrokes and by the end I had improved more in one hour than in the two months I spent prior attempting to self-correct my game. It’s also worth noting I got a fantastic workout from the lesson and I know he wasn’t pushing me as hard as he could have had I been in better shape.

Overall I’m extremely pleased with the instruction and have already booked future lessons to continue to build upon the first session. I’m very much looking forward to getting in better shape and becoming a more complete player with Louis-Philippe’s guidance.

Coach Louis-Philippe helped me correct my mistakes that I was making beforehand and I can already feel the improvement with my ground strokes. Louis-Philippe has a lot of great tips about technique and footwork. I have drastically improved my backhand using the tips given to me. I would strongly recommend Coach Louis-Philippe because he offers a lot of information and tactics that group lessons do not offer.

Louis Philippe is an excellent instructor

Coach Louis-Philippe is an outstanding coach! He's able to clearly explain simple and complex concepts alike; concepts that crystallize rapidly when working through the various follow-up drills!

very helpful tips...always encouraging and never patronizing...and obviously very knowledgeable.

Coach Louis Philippe was a great help in improving my game - he helped me with forehand, backhand and serves especially. He was able to give me very clear suggestions on form and improved my game quite a bit with only 3 lessons so far. I strongly recommend him.

Amazing coach for all ages.

Coach LOUIS-PHILIPPE is very helpful to pinpoint the shortcomings that my daughter has with her stroke. The drill he provided could effectively improve her stroke as well as develop into her muscle memory providing she would remember to apply them in her daily practice.
Coach Louis is also very knowledgeable about strings and string tensions.
I highly recommend him to players of any level.

Coach Louis-Philippe is one of the best coaches I've ever had. True to other reviews, he identifies weaknesses quickly and offers pragmatic ways to address them. I had a most enjoyable session and would definitely recommend Coach Louis-Philippe to anyone who is looking for a great tennis coach.

My lesson with coach Louis-Philippe was much better than I thought a single lesson with anyone could be. In just one session he was able to improve my stroke technique significantly and gave lots of instruction I found to be very useful. It was very exciting to see immediate results and I plan on spending more time with him. Highly recommended.

Coach Louis-Philippe is an outstanding coach. Within a few minutes, he detected a number of flaws in my fundamentals and tweaked them just enough to produce some immediate improvements. I was hitting better and feeling better about my strokes within a very short time. I plan to arrange for additional lessons with him. I definitely recommend him.

Coach Louis was a great coach! He doesn't just feed balls; he really watched my shots carefully and found simple things to change that drastically improved my shots. I'm a competitive player and he started to develop more of the practical skills I would need to win matches. He's friendly and extremely knowledgeable! I would highly recommend.

Louis is a great coach. He make very helpful comments no one had ever mentioned. A great first lesson.

Identifies your debilities quickly and focus on what has to be corrected until it´s almost perfect. Great coach.

Great experience, highly recommended.

Great session. I highly recommend Louis to all tennis players out there. Will definitely book more sessions with him as he is very professional and only takes him a few minutes to aknowledge what needs to be improved and how to do so.

Highly recommended!!!

We have had a fantastic experience with Louis-Philippe as our coach. His technical diagnostic of the tennis skills of my two preteen boys during our first class allowed for an immediate and noticeable improvement of their game. We will definitely continue working with him. As an experienced tennis player myself, I highly recommend him as a tennis coach for any age group or level.

Louis is a very patient and very personable coach. He has helped me understand my mistakes, and has not discouraged me even when I make mistakes. He will instead reinforce my esteem until I am able to complete the task successfully. He is helping me take my game to the next level, and I really am happy to have found such a wonderful coach and human being.

Within three minutes of our first meeting, Louis diagnosed what was wrong with my forehand--I was keeping my elbow too close to my body. It's something that countless other pros had missed. He is a smart teacher, who really understands, tennis, his students and how to communicate the right technique. I highly recommend him.

Louis has a sophisticated understanding of the biomechanics of tennis strokes and can effectively teach them to a wide range of skill and experience levels. He has a good eye for technical flaws and will come up with innovative approaches to help the student correct them. As a successful tournament player, he knows what it takes to win at all levels and provides good match training.
