About Dalton

Hello my name is Dalton and I am a local Athens tennis coach with over 11 years of playing experience and over 6 years of teaching experience! I am a third year finance major minoring in English over at the University of Georgia planning on attending law school upon graduation. I’m also a current member of the UGA Club Tennis Team.

For the past two years, I have coached the Athens Academy Varsity Tennis Team, which is made up of boys and girls spanning ages 13 to 18 years old. I do have extensive experience coaching children much younger, however, teaching children from ages as young as 4 years old during my employment at St. Ives Country Club for 3 years while I was in high school. I’m a total die hard Federer fan. The man is just all class and style…and he’s pretty good at tennis as well. Go Dawgs!

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 Athens at the UGA Intramural Courts and Athens Academy Tennis Courts but I will also 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 Athens tennis coach. See you on the court!

Teaching Area


"Dalton is by far my favorite tennis coach. He is very easy to work with, kind, and hardworking. He is able to teach us new games and drills to focus on certain aspects of our game as well as focusing specifically on technique and form. He makes the game a lot more fun. He’s also very interactive and gives great tips on how to improve your strokes. He focused on my split step and footwork while I was at the net during doubles, greatly improving my game!"

"Dalton is one of the best coaches I have ever had! Not only did he teach me new skills, he fixed the techniques that were wrongly taught to me in the past by other coaches. Other than being a great coach skillfully, he taught me and my doubles partner how to work and move together as one. Dalton made sure that we were engaged in what he was teaching us by using fun games and new innovation drills that worked us into having good technical forehands and backhands that became habitual therefore making us just better players overall!”
