About Louis


Hi my name is Louis and I am a local Bethesda tennis coach as well as a professional tennis teacher who has successfully developed hundreds of players over the last 20 years! I have over 32 years of playing experience and over 23 years of tennis teaching experience with this beautiful, passionate and wonderful sport. I both teach and develop students of all ages and all skill levels from recreational to High Performance Tennis. I also specialize in tennis bio-mechanics corrections and improvements as well as game style enhancement. Whether you are a beginner or advanced player, I am here to help!

I’m extremely goal oriented and my coaching style is highly focused on quality result in a relatively short time. I am a very passionate and process-driven coach who loves the game and motivates players to reach their potential. I do require both complete mental and physical engagement during all tennis court time. I also specialize on balance, footwork, strategy, aggressiveness and attitude. I am analytical and utilize video, journaling and developmental planning to show players both tennis and life. Classes are dynamic, didactical, fun and ideal for beginners, intermediate and high performance levels. Learn all the basics and fundamentals of tennis and take your game to the next level! I will travel up to 5 miles and teach in Bethesda & Potomac.

"Coach Louis-Philippe is an outstanding coach. Within a few minutes, he detected a number of flaws in my fundamentals and tweaked them just enough to produce some immediate improvements. I was hitting better and feeling better about my strokes within a very short time. I plan to arrange for additional lessons with him. I definitely recommend him!"

"Coach Louis was a great coach! He doesn't just feed balls, he really watched my shots carefully and found simple things to change that drastically improved my shots. I'm a competitive player and he started to develop more of the practical skills I would need to win matches. He's friendly and extremely knowledgeable! I would highly recommend!"

"Highly recommended!!! We have had a fantastic experience with Louis-Philippe as our coach. His technical diagnostic of the tennis skills of my two preteen boys during our first class allowed for an immediate and noticeable improvement of their game. We will definitely continue working with him. As an experienced tennis player myself, I highly recommend him as a tennis coach for any age group or level. A++++!"
