Manik's Tennis Academy
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 $70/hr. 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.
