About this pro

My name is Manik Chhabra. I am a professional tennis coach with over 20 years of experience in the game as a player and 8 years as a Coach. I trained at one of the most prestigious academies of the United States for 13 years where I trained with top-notch Coaches and players. I was a top Super Champ in Texas all my junior career - won innumerable tournaments. I am also a 5.0 level tennis player (Division 1 level) and played College tennis at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia for all 4 years - where we won the 2012 NCAA tournament. I have played some pro-level tournaments and have taken several students to the top of the game - beginner, intermediate and advanced. My core tenets are technique, tactics, mental/ emotional and fitness. I am very thorough with my methods and provide constant feedback on the development of the students game. I also provide VIDEO ANALYSIS to help further the player's development, along with post-video analysis after lessons. I teach in the Las Colinas area, where I have a private tennis court. I also teach in the Frisco area. I charge $50/hr and provide a $5 discount for my first lesson with you. I appreciate your reading this message and hope to improve your tennis game soon. 

I enjoy instantaneous progress. I have been taught by several coaches who may have delayed my game, as they were in it for the money. However, I am different and enjoy seeing major progress within one lesson. I am purely devoted to amplifying your tennis game according to my core tenets. It took me 20 years to get to my level but I want you to get there in 2 years, which is a definite possibility. Furthermore, I enjoy what I do because I like to create positive change in people's lives, as the results from tennis lessons may impact your daily life.

    1) Manik is honest... no fluff! 2) He listens... to what you'd like to improve upon 3) Very good value - for the price, you are getting professinal-level training

    My 15-yr old daughter took lessons with Manik for a month this summer. Through these lessons Manik showed that he cared not only about her tennis skills but also her overall health and fitness. She's usually very quiet and shy, but it was rewarding for me as a parent to see her looking forward to a lesson and coming home so energized and happy. I highly recommend Manik as a tennis instructor, no matter what level you're at. We will look him up again next time.

  • James Burnett

    It was a pleasure to take lessons from Manik. His knowledge of tennis is extensive and his lessons have substance and depth. He was able to quickly determine areas I needed to improve and developed a plan to address the weaknesses. His instruction in clear and not too technical that interrupts your ability to absorb the information. I will definitely take lessons from him again in the future.

  • Michael

    I've been working with Manik for around 8 months after not playing for years and have improved rapidly. I would recommend him if you want to improve your game.

FAQs


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

First, I gauge their tennis level by asking him/her questions about his/her prior experience with tennis. Second, I ask the student what his/her short term and long term goals are in tennis. Third, I give them advice on technique, tactics, mental/emotional or fitness based on my analysis in the lesson. Lastly, the tennis process begins and we discover quick improvements in your game.


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

I have a neuroscience degree and thus, I am very analytical when observing your tennis stroke. I enjoy biophysics, as it is the science behind tennis.


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

$50 per hr for a private lesson. $27.50 each for two people per hr. $25 each for a 3 person group. $20 for a large group lesson of 4-6 people maximum.


How did you get started teaching?

Back in 2010 when I realized that teaching improved my game tremendously, as well as improving other people's game. There is a mutual benefit.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with people who have never held a racquet all the way up to national level tennis players. Beginner to Intermediate to Advanced.


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

They should list their short term goals in tennis and their long term goals. It should be hand-written, as it helps make improvement faster. Based on what they need, the instructor will provide the solution.
