About Bob

Hi my name is Bob and I’m a local Arden tennis coach with over 48 years of playing experience and over 7 years teaching experience! After becoming dual certified by both the United States Professional Tennis Registry (USPTR) and the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) as a professional coach, I decided to launch a facebook page to try & market my private tennis coaching services.

Having begun my venture into professional tennis in 2014, I’ve been a United States Tennis Association (USTA) Certified Tennis Umpire for the Intermountain Section, member of the Bloomington Country Club (BCC) Tennis Staff, the President, Entrada Tennis Association, and previously worked as a private tennis coach at the Entrada Golf & Tennis Resort in St. George, Utah. In 2020, three (3) of the girls that I coached both competed in the Utah State Tennis Championships & two of them won the singles and doubles championships in the Utah State High School Championships. Currently, I am now working as the Head Teaching Pro at High Vista POA Community in Arden, N.C..

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 for all skill levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced). So whether you need to work on some specifics like your forehand, backhand, volley, serve, service return, overhead, drop shot, approach shot, footwork, singles strategy or doubles strategy-I would be more than happy to help you out with your tennis game!

I teach tennis lessons in the Arden area but will travel up to 20 miles.

Please 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, 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 Arden tennis coach. See you out on the court!

Private Tennis Lessons (1 Player): $65 Per Hour
Semi-Private Tennis Lessons (2 Players): $30 Per Hour Each
Group Tennis Lessons (3+ Players): $25 Per Hour Each
Hitting Only Sessions (1 Player): $65 Per Hour
Teaches All Ages & All Skill Levels!

*Please note that if you are interested in semi-private tennis lessons (2 players) or group tennis lessons (3+ players), you will first need to find a friend(s) to take tennis lessons with you before contacting me.

"It is my pleasure to offer my unreserved recommendation for Bob Vipperman as a USPTA Certified Tennis Professional and one qualified for teaching and any other position at your club or facility. I have known Bob for almost 10 years as we have worked together with each other on the tennis court and with other students. We have also worked together scheduling and running numerous tennis tournaments as well as marketing for sponsorships for those tournaments.
I consider Bob one of my closest friends. He is a man of high standards and dependability. If he says he will do something or be somewhere, he will! I have tried to follow his example in my life. I can truly say that Bob has as much integrity as anyone I know. I would recommend Bob for any position you have available. He is motivated to improve, do a great job, accomplish much, and will be an example of professionalism in every way. I am impressed that he has chosen a second career as a tennis professional and he is doing all he can to be the best he can be. He will be a strong asset to your programs!"

"Bob is an excellent coach and has demonstrated the breadth of his skills and knowledge during his training sessions with both me and my daughter. His understanding and love of the game is exemplified through his dedication as a coach and mentor. He was able to help my daughter break through a psychological barrier with her serve that had persisted for many months and likely would have continued without his insight and situational awareness. I’m confident Bob possesses the training techniques to help elevate players’ ability to play at a very competitive level both physically and mentally. We are ever thankful for his unique skill set!"
