    My whole family work with David. We like everything about his class! He always arrives early. He knows exactly what you need to play better and focus on your weakness. Instruction is very clear and easy to follow. Skills are improved significantly in just one or two classes. We love David's Tennis lessons and look forward to each class!

  • Lisanne McDearman

    We have had many tennis coaches over the years, and David is by far our absolute favorite. He has very helpful and useful advice that vastly improved your game His instructions are clear, easy to understand and simple to implement. He does not over complicate things. He is also very encouraging and takes a positive approach. I highly recommend him!

  • Rachel K. from Springlake

    David is a great tennis coach! He's fun and but also focused and teaches the game as well as the skills to play it. It doesn't matter if you are completely new to the game or a long-time player who just wants to work on a particular skill, David is patient and clear on how to improve your game. I highly recommend him to everyone!

  • Alex A. from Chastain Park

    David is a true professional who'll make your lessons count. He applies what he knows in amounts and with drills that you can handle and take to your next match.
