Private Tennis Instruction

Riccardo is a real pro. He met me at my condo’s tennis courts and offered me a private lesson with excellent tips to improve my tennis game (I’m an intermediate-Advanced player). He's responsive, on-time, and a breeze to schedule. He’s patient, passionate about tennis and helping people, and provides step-by-step instruction that was understandable and easy to implement into my strokes and game. I’m excited to incorporate into my game the great suggestions he offered. Riccardo is also a super-nice guy too. I would whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone, at all levels of tennis!

We worked with Ricardo for the entire week in March/April 2021. He trained my two sons, ages 13 and 17 who are both advanced tennis players. He was great. He understood what they needed after the first lesson. The lessons were amazing. The technical, strategic and matchplay aspect combined with fitness drills were up to par and challenging for the boys. They loved their lessons and were looking forward to the next day of practice every time. Thank you Ricardo.

Private Tennis Instruction

Riccardo helped my 2 boys with improving their tennis skills. They are 10 and 13 and at an intermediate to advanced level. They needed someone to work on refining their skills as they are starting to play competitive tennis. . They have both been playing tennis for 6 years and play competitive tennis for their local tennis center. Now they are playing for their school more competitively. He has been immediately responsive, always early and very patient with them. He has helped them refine each of their strokes to help take them to the next level of play. They enjoy their sessions with him, as he provides a very positive and encouraging environment in which to learn. He drives in the early hours of the morning on weekends and for over 45 minutes to coach them. That shows his dedication to helping his students.

Riccardo is not only an awesome tennis player but he’s a great instructor as well. I never felt like Riccardo was “watching the clock” and a lot of times our 1 hour lessons lasted 1.5 hours. He’s super friendly and patient.
