About this pro

Hello everyone, my name is Coleman Welch and I am located in Riverside, CA. I am originally from the upstate of South Carolina where I played college tennis and began teaching. I transplanted to California in late 2016 and I have been lucky enough to find a really great tennis community. I am USPTA certified and would love to discuss your tennis needs. 

I strongly enjoy the social aspect of tennis. Getting to work one-on-one or in a group setting is very fun and rewarding for me!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When working with a new student I like to first evaluate the needs and wants of the student. After spending some time on the court to evaluate the player I set up a course of action that the student can use on the court and at home to help become a better player and reach their particular goals.

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

I am a USPTA certified teaching professional. I played college tennis in South Carolina and I have been actively playing ever since graduation.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

A standard one-on-one lesson with me is $35 dollars for the hour. With Group lessons going at a charge of $20 per person. That number can be adjusted as the number of the group increases. 

How did you get started teaching?

I began teaching during college and gained my experience mainly teaching Juniors at a club in South Carolina before taking some time off and then joining the teaching team at Andulka Tennis in Riverside, CA.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with both juniors and adults ranging from beginners to intermediate. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I have had the honor of playing for a national league championship at the Indian Wells tennis Garden. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I believe comfort level is what is most important. if you are not comfortable with the teacher then you will learn at your highest level. It is important to work with someone that has a teaching style that is cohesive with your learning style.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What is it they are looking to get out of the lessons. It is important to know if you have a specific goal of say, improving one stroke in particular or if they are looking to work with someone over a period of time to help them in all aspects of your game.
