My friend and I took our first ever tennis lesson. We are absolute beginners - John was very receptive and adapted the lesson based on our playing. He was on the court on time, before we arrived. We are definitely excited about playing more tennis now that we have someone to guide us!

Fred is an outstanding tennis coach! I've had 3 lessons with him so far and I've already learned so many great fundamentals. He is approachable and clearly adapts the way he teaches to fit my individual level -- I left my first lesson excited about how much I could improve my tennis game with Fred. Additionally, he is very responsive and thoughtful about working with your schedule. I look forward to continuing to work with Fred and highly recommend him to anyone looking for tennis lessons!

Fred is an outstanding tennis instructor! He is patient, informative, and challenging. As a beginner, I was hesitant to start playing, but Fred's optimism and high-energy lessons motivated me to stick with it! I highly recommend Fred as a tennis coach. Thanks, Fred!

So fun to hang out with and learn from Fred. After not having played tennis in years, our first lesson with Fred got us excited for more lessons and practicing on our own.

John is a great coach, sets realistic and personalized goals for lessons, and most importantly is teaching me to be independent and confident in playing tennis.

Fred is a fantastic tennis coach and in only a few lessons I was able to feel confident in my knowledge of good tennis technique. I had little to no experience prior to our first lesson and Fred quickly assessed my ability and tailored our lessons accordingly. He is patient, professional, and great at explaining the “how” and “why” behind tennis technique so you can conintue practicing on your own. He covered everything including forehand, backhand, serving, and footwork and gave me helpful feedback with every swing. I can’t wait to take everything I’ve learned from Fred and continue playing on my own!

Fred is a great tennis coach and taught me a lot of the fundamental skills I had forgotten. He was patient and perceptive and I plan to take more lessons with him! The courts are great too.

To my fellow tennis players colleagues: If you want a true customized lesson session. for your game, John is the man! He analyzes you in a broad scope - away from the bread and butter repetition, i.e. “elbows here”, “shoulders there”. Johns have a passion to train ourselves to be our own coach. His methodology not only solves our problem with tennis, but empowers us to learn how to think to be a better tennis player, not only a better tennis student. And above all - John is a nice gentleman and a wonderful person. I really look forward to see him again next time I come to the Bay Area!

Fred is a tremendous instructor. He is engaging, funny, encouraging, well organized, and above all--patient! Fred makes it easy for me to schedule lessons even with all the business travel I do. I look forward to my tennis lessons and am making great progress. Can't say enough good things! I highly recommend Fred.

Sam is a FANTASTIC tennis instructor! Wow - just wow! He walked me through the opportunities for improvement in my form, we did a lot of serious practice of swing dynamics - he took videos of me hitting and sent them in slow motion immediately after the lesson. Really could not have asked for more. Can't wait for my next lesson!!!

Fred is a fantastic tennis instructor! I am a beginner/intermediate and he has helped me so tremendously in a short period of time. It is clear that he has experience and knowledge, but he also makes our lessons really fun. I would highly recommend Fred to a player of any level!

Julio was a great coach. I was really horrible when I first started and I managed to get a consistent forehand and backhand with his lessons. He emphasized hitting balls that would make me a good tennis partner. He was patient with me and always in good spirits when we met up. If you’re in the city Julio meets at neighborhood public tennis courts and while he tries to get there beforehand to reserve the court, things don’t always work out. Rescheduling was never a problem, he’s pretty flexible.

Sam was a great tennis coach. He was very responsive and professional. I was able to improve my forehand thanks to his tips and drills. I liked that he went above and beyond and brought a camera to the lesson so that we can analyze my swing in slow motion, which was very helpful.

I've been a beginner at tennis for a long time and it wasn't until working with Fred hat he was immediately able to improve my swing and my game. It's only been 2 lessons so far and I'm amazed by how quickly I've already improved. Also, great and easy teacher to work with!

I had my first ever tennis lesson with Fred and it was amazing. I had doubts about me being able to pickup and like the sport since I have no prior experience and haven’t been actively playing any sport for a long time. But one lesson with Fred made it all go away. He is a great coach who focuses on building the right technique while making the whole learning process fun. Now I’ve been thinking why I didn’t start it sooner.

Paul is an awesome coach. I've had 6 lessons with him so far, and made a lot of progress. Paul is great at analyzing your strokes and giving pointers for where your technique needs improvement, as well as discussing tennis strategy. I've even used his strategy tips to win some matches! I'm looking forward to continuing to improve my game with his help!

Great experience getting back into the tennis game after 17+ years and learning the basics with Coach Daniel. I feel like after 3 lessons I am already a lot better and my old skills are coming to show. Coach Daniel is always punctual, ready to challenge me on the court and corrects my bad habits. I have really enjoyed my time back on the court!

I've only had one lesson with Fred so far, and my technique has already improved tenfold. Not only is he patient and encouraging with his students, he also has a gift for explaining how to make small adjustments that make a huge difference. I'm so excited to work with him and would highly recommend him to tennis players at any level. Get a spot with him before his time is all booked up!

Today I had the opportunity to pick up a (a very hold) racquet for the first time in many years and try to hit tennis balls. Fred's lesson reminded me why I used to love this game so much. He provided a wealth of constructive & immediately actionable tips, advice, and plenty of genuine encouragement. He is professional, funny, engaging, insightful, and it's clear that he truly loves what he does. I highly recommend him to every rusty former high school player.

Sam is an excellent instructor, especially for beginners! I'm brand new to tennis and Sam did a great job of breaking down the swing (both forehand and backhand) into the various components, which really helped me understand exactly what parts I was doing right and what parts I needed to work on. Sam is also great at adjusting the lesson based on the needs of the student -- for example, I was struggling with my follow through, so we did a few drills where I focused only on that part of the swing, which I found super helpful in putting everything together. I'm excited to start practicing on my own based on what Sam has taught me and looking forward to signing up for more lessons to see what else I could be improve on. Thanks Sam!
