Signing up for tennis lessons is a great way to dramatically improve your forehand, backhand, and footwork. Widely appealing to kids of all ages, Tennis is the type of sport that requires focused development of technical, physical, and mental techniques. Luckily, there are hundreds of tennis instructors on CoachUp located throughout the country. Tennis pros develop specific tennis skills through offering private lessons. At CoachUp, we care deeply about the caliber of the instructors featured on our website, and we put each coach through a strenuous application, and ongoing vetting process. Whether you are new to tennis, looking to compete at the next level, or simply hoping to pick up a few tips, CoachUp has a large selection of tennis instructors that will cater to your unique goals. If you’re picking up a racket for the first time, it’s important to learn the basics of the forehand stroke in your first few tennis lessons.

So what happens in your initial tennis lessons? If you are a beginner, your coach will focus on helping you master the forehand -- giving you a solid foundation before moving on to your backhand, volley and serve. Once you are comfortable swinging the racket, you will want your defensive movement, swing preparation, and overall understanding of situational play. A tennis instructor will help you focus on the basics -- from your swing, to your body position, racket grip, and overall form. If are looking to elevate your game, a tennis pro will also help you improve the accuracy and power of your serve. With time, practice, and focused training in your tennis lessons, you will see measurable results. Regardless of current skill level in Tennis, you can always improve your hand-eye coordination, balance and agility through private instruction.

The tennis instructors on CoachUp have a wealth of knowledge about the game, and deliver exceptional private lessons. Many of our coaches are current or former professional tennis players, college stars, or longtime tennis instructors. For instance, If you are new to tennis, someone like CoachUp Coach Oetiker may be a great fit for you -- not only did Coach Oetiker play at the college Division I and professional level, but she holds a USPTA certification. Her expertise helps novice tennis players develop their forehand, backhand, and basic footwork. Former USTA competitor, Coach Eng, is both a USPTA Master and PTR International Master Professional. His private lesson expertise is ideal for those looking to add velocity to their serve and improve their overall game strategy at an advanced level. Rest assured that whichever CoachUp tennis pro you choose will provide a great workout in a fun and supportive environment.
