Hello my name is Al and I am a local Albuquerque tennis coach with over 25 years of playing experience and over 24 years of teaching experience! I started coaching tennis when I was 15 as a sophomore on my high school tennis team. I worked at Albuquerque Country Club as the assistant pro for over a year and the club pro had me work with all 14 and under club members. I learned a lot then about teaching from the club pro which helped me also become a better player. I was certified as a USPTA Tennis Professional back in 1987.
Next, I was hired as the head tennis instructor at the Mountainside YMCA. I taught juniors and adults in private and semi-private lessons and organized men’s and women’s competitive tennis leagues. I also was the boys head tennis coach at the local high school and the girls head tennis coach at a neighboring city. At the same time, I started my own tennis instruction in the same small town, working mostly with juniors in private, semi-private and group lessons, junior clinics, junior leagues and some private adult lessons as well for several years. I have worked as a head club pro for a summer in Colorado, an assistant club pro in Nebraska and I founded and directed an 18 and under tennis tournament located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
For the past several years, I have been instructing both juniors and adults in private and semi-private lessons. In all, I have over 24 years of tennis, coaching, teaching and instructing experience as well as 4 years of competitive tennis play. I specialize in 4.0 NTRP level and under and would love to work with anybody as your Albuquerque tennis coach-especially find a few juniors who love the game! I have a Master’s Degree in Psychology, emphasizing in Human Services.
I am available to give tennis lessons locally in Albuquerque around UNM, North Domingo Baca Park, La Cueva High School, the Arroyo del Oso courts, Sierra Vista West, Ventana Ranch and others but I am also willing to travel up to 20 miles to a tennis court that is near you.
Please feel free to contact me through my coach page and then I will contact you back within 24 hours to introduce myself, answer any questions and if you are interested, set-up your first tennis lesson or hitting session at a time and place that is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you and I look forward to the opportunity to be your Albuquerque tennis coach. I hope to see you on the court!
