What you will learn

Understanding the Game

The best way to play, especially in the beginning stages, is to be patient and in control of the ball.

Tennis is a flowing game, a game of your togetherness with the ball. Your racquet is an extension of your hand.

Flow & Natural Strokes

Right from the beginning, we teach you correct, natural mechanics that allow you to play dynamically.

Dynamics vs Mechanics

Discipline of Waiting

One of the most difficult things in tennis is to avoid rushing. You will learn to focus on finding the ball and repeating a certain feel in each stroke.

Tennis is a game of movement, and perhaps no other motion is as critical as the finish. As you stroke the ball by instinct and feel, focus on finishing.

Focus on the Finish

Learn simple remedies for the most common problems you can face on the tennis court. Helping you while playing singles or doubles games.

Benefits to Playing Tennis for Life

The Perfect Social Activity

Tennis can be played as doubles or singles. Being able to socialize with opponents and partners is a huge benefit of the game!

Playing tennis can improve critical thinking, mental alertness, and tactical thinking by making connections in the brain.

Boosted Brain Power

Tennis is a sport where you are constantly moving, changing direction and stretching your body.

Improved Agility, Flexibility, Balance

Weight Loss

Tennis is a great cardio workout, especially if you’re playing singles. You’re constantly running, pivoting, stretching, and moving every inch of your body.

When you play tennis, your mind is forced to focus of the task at hand instead of focusing on your stresses and endless to-do lists. Think of it as a little vacation for your brain!

Stress Relief

Unlike most sports, tennis can be played at any age. You don’t see many 60, 70, or even 80-year-olds playing tackle football or running up and down a soccer field. But many retirees still play and enjoy the game of tennis.

It’s a Life-Time Sport

Testimonials from Happy Students

Ida Stegmeijer

David is a very good, fun, technical and motivational tennis coach, I believe he can teach anyone, on any level to (improve) to play tennis. I started playing with him a little over 2 years ago with a small group of friends (30 yrs), one hour a week. I never played before at all, but in these years he has taught us to really be able to play a game and compete with others. I already look forward to our class next week!

Until a few months ago I had never even touched a tennis racket, started playing for fun with friends but kept missing, hitting over, and games would just be frustrating. We all wanted to be able to play a decent game. After just a few lessons I've been able to play a proper forehand, backhand, first and second serve and games are a lot more fun when it takes more than 3 hits. I'd highly recommend David as a teacher!

David has been a dream to work with, I am a beginner and he has shared many tips and tricks to help me acclimate to Tennis. I have seen my tennis skills improve weekly and I attribute this to Davids patience, guidance and great coaching skills. I term David the "Tennis whisperer", he is excellent at his craft. I look forward to continuing my lessons with David.
