Introduction: Why hire Ed Duffy? 1. Unmatched Elite Tennis Credentials: I am a Master of Tennis, PTR Performance. a USPTA Elite Tennis Professional and a USTA High Performance Coach. Additionally, I am an iTPA Master Tennis Performance Specialist. These credentials are verifiable and evidence of elite professionalism. I have dedicated my life to teaching tennis. I love it! I will make your tennis relaxed, enjoyable and fun. You are going to improve FAST! Please compare my credentials to ANY Tennis Professional. 2. Reviews: Reviews matter! Quantity, quality, and time relevance. Why do I have so many excellent reviews? I respect YOUR tennis goals and I work hard to help you achieve them fast. Please compare my reviews to ANY other Thumbtack Pro. 3. Thumbtack Top Pro Status: You need great reviews to achieve Thumbtack Top Pro Status. 4. Red Flags: Beware of Pros that have old reviews, very few reviews, and few if any verifiable teaching credentials. Beware of FREE and unusually low fees. Tennis is a sport! Not a game. You must learn proper technique to avoid injuries. 5. Fun: If you are looking for a Pro that brings energy, excitement and enthusiasm....😊 check my reviews again!

Coach Ed Duffy is a true pro. From the moment I reached out to him, he was responsive, flexible and so easy to communicate with. The fact that our 6-year old daughter came home shouting “I love tennis! I can’t wait to play again!” speaks volume to us. Thank you, Coach Ed :-)

I was in town visiting and wanted a lesson with a great tennis pro. He surpassed my expectation and taught a great lesson. He really knows his stuff! Would recommend to anyone.

Ed is an amazing coach! We are a couple and have taken a few lessons with Ed already. I see so much improvement in my technique since I have no experience in tennis what’s so ever. He also guides my fiancée on how to become a better player since he is more of an intermediate player. Ed has lots of patience and you can tell he loves what he does. I’m looking forwarding to taking more lessons with Ed.

Coach Ed is a fantastic coach. We’ve only just started lessons but I can already tell that we will have a wonderful journey with him. His enthusiasm and love of the sport is infectious. He has excited my 13 year old son, who, up until now, has been on 3 year hiatus from tennis. I’m so excited for what’s to come. Ed is flexible,-willing to work with hours that best suit your needs. He is timely, energetic, and most importantly, very knowledgeable about the sport and how to play it. Definitely recommend!!!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    A travel fee applies when I must travel outside of Boca Raton/Delray Beach. If you are interested in semi private or group lessons, additional fees apply.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I always like to determine the customers goals and reasons for playing tennis first. Then I perform a Needs Analysis.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Absolutely!!! I attend USPTA, USTA, PTR, iTPA and European Tennis workshops constantly. I am proud to say I teach at the highest level. A great Pro always improves his craft.

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
