Hello my name is Derek! I am a local Anaheim tennis coach and full-time tennis teaching professional. My uncle was the one that got me introduced to this great sport at the young age of 12 and I have been playing ever since then. Over the course of my tennis career, I have competed in many different tennis tournaments that range from the novice level all the way up to the national level tournaments. After finishing college, I then worked a few different jobs before I got into teaching tennis and I really feel like this has been my calling in life.
My favorite part of working in the tennis industry is that there is always something new to learn and incorporate into your teaching style. My goal is to one day own my own tennis facility and create a great junior program that will be accessible to everyone and from all walks of life. I am a USPTA Certified Tennis Professional and I have taught on public tennis courts right around my house all the way up to teaching at 5 star hotels like the Ritz Carlton and the Langham Huntington. After I finished competing in college tennis, I started to become more involved coaching. I’m able to teach any level as well as any age. I have been teaching professionally now for over 5 years and I have been playing the great game of tennis for over 20 years!
I am offering fun private tennis lessons, semi-private tennis lessons, group tennis lessons and hitting only sessions for all ages (kids, teens, adults, seniors) and all skill levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced). I teach tennis lessons at the Anaheim Tennis Center and the surrounding Orange County area but I will travel up to 15 miles.
Please contact me through my FindTennisLessons.com coach page and then I will contact you back within 24 hours to introduce myself, answer any questions and if you are interested, we’ll 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 Anaheim tennis coach. See you on the court!
