    I can't say enough great things about Coach Dematas! I look forward to my lessons every week. He is such a great teacher, very encouraging and always makes the lessons fun (and a great workout). I started as a beginner, but his teaching and feedback improved my game significantly and quickly. I highly recommend working with him!

    I recently decided to start learning Tennis and that is when i contacted Coach Dematas , he immediately explained to me the basic techniques and found a way to help me improve my footwork and swing movement ; since then i have been a regular with Coach Dematas and i feel the improvement week over week. He was very patient with explaining the different racket types , giving advise on where to get a racket from and every session is extremely fun.

    My friend and I decided we wanted to take up tennis. We had no prior experience and knew we needed some type of instruction to get us started. I searched ___ and found John, and so happy I did! John was professional and very patient with our complete lack of experience, all while reminding us to have fun! He was positive and started with the basics, while instilling confidence in us. His expertise was evident. John’s pricing was extremely reasonable as well. He is also very flexible with scheduling lessons. We will definitely be using John again to perfect our new hobby!
