"Warren is an absolutely amazing instructor. He is extremely generous with his time and very patient. You can really tell that he teaches because he loves the game and this passion is palpable in every lesson. I started working with Warren because I wanted to learn how to play socially with coworkers and after 12 lessons, he was able to give me a very good foundation on forehands, backhands, and serving. I definitely feel confident enough to play with my friends now and plan on taking more lessons so I can learn how to compete even better!"
