FAQs


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

I always start with short court tennis.  This tells me a lot in the first few mins about the student's shots & strokes, giving a new student time to relax and a the opportunity returning student time to warm up the small muscles in their body.  This drill also allows all students to work on their control.

If student is a true beginner or new student,  I reserve the right to bypass this drill & feed student some balls to each shot to diagnose which shots that need work and the best strategy to help the student reach their goals.
