    Lendale is super nice and patient. I havent played tennis for a while, but with Lendale, I pick it up very fast after just two sessions. He is a great coach. I highly recommend Lendale and his Academy.

    Lendele is a wonderful tennis player & coach with years of experience & an overall positive attitude. Not only that, Lendele is an advocate and has donated lessons to fund raiser silent actions I have hosted for Seth Rogen & Lauren Miller Rogen’s Hilarity for Charity Alzheimer’s & Dementia Non for Profit & for Hope for the Day, A Suicide Prevention Non for Profit. Besides being skilled, he is kind. That beautiful energy encourages progress and success.
