  • Scarlet Henry

    Happy is very knowledgeable and is passionate about improving the kids game. He continues to study the game and it shows in his instructions. I’ve never met a coach who eat and sleep tennis. He is a walking tennis book. He also make sure parents are knowledgeable on areas to help enhance the kids game on and off the court.

  • Dan Shmalo

    Coach Happy has been wonderful getting our twins into tennis. He is patient with kids with special needs (my son is on the autism spectrum) and challenging for those with raw talent (daughter who is state champ in another sport). Definitely recommend Coach Happy. Takora is an accomplished player and a gifted coach.

  • Cecily Thompson

    Takura is very detailed and passionate about improving my tennis game. He sets the bar high and provides a lot of feedback so that I can recognize ways that I can fix technical errors so that I can boost my performance. He also clearly cares about his students - he even sends me videos between sessions, and shows me footage of my own play so that I can see how I'm progressing. If you want to improve your game, he will get you there. He has also been teaching my 7 year old, and he balances having fun with focusing on the fundamentals. My son has really flourished under his tutelage.

How did you get started teaching?

I have been a competitor my career whether as being the best tennis player in Zimbabwe, i coach tennis to give back and help other people understand not everyone can be a champion but sports helps breath character and tennis is a lifetime sport, therefore might as well work on both health, the person and building a good athlete.
