Hello my name is Donny and I am a Bradenton tennis coach with over 30 years of playing experience and over 20 years of teaching experience! I am a USPTA Certified Tennis Professional and currently play professional tennis tournaments internationally. I have also received a ranking in the Top #500 on the ATP professional tour.
I trained at IMG Bollettieri Tennis Academy from the age of 13-18 and went on to compete on the tour. After I retired, I worked at IMG with Nick Bollettieri and competed with some of the very best coaches and players in the world. After IMG, I then began working with Cary Cohenhauer at Celsius Tennis Academy. Since 2010, I have been teaching private tennis lessons to kids that want to improve their tennis game or that want to become a professional tennis player.
I have the resource and the know how to become a professional tennis player on the tour and I also know where to play in the right tournaments to get a ATP or WTA ranking. I’ve been there and done that-so for me, I know what steps to take and what tournaments to play in order to get your son or daughter to that level if they desire.
My areas of coaching expertise are the proper stoke fundamentals and development, singles and doubles strategy and tactics, point construction and shot selection, footwork and physical conditioning (and I have my own personal trainer available that can help you), developing a game style, mental toughness and court geometry.
I teach tennis at various outdoor locations in Bradenton as well as Sarasota, but will travel up to 15 miles to a tennis court 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 Bradenton tennis coach. I hope to see you out on the court!
