About Chris

Hello my name is Chris and I am a Chandler tennis coach who has been playing tennis since age 8! I began playing more competitively at age 12 and still play singles and doubles tournaments. I have been teaching tennis for over seven years and have enjoyed improving others’ tennis games as well as continuing to improve my own tennis game. I graduated from Hamilton High School in 2010 and I played varsity tennis there for four years. I enjoy teaching players of all ages and skill levels. Lately, I have been teaching more intermediate and advanced players. I graduated from Arizona State University and I now work as an accountant off the tennis court in the Chandler area.

When teaching tennis lessons, I always first begin with a warmup. The warmup usually includes a few laps around the court followed by stretching. After a few minutes, I begin stroke warmup by either playing mini tennis or feeding ground strokes depending on what I see that would be most effective for the student. Next, I do a drill related to the skills that I want the student to practice that day.

For example, I might want to work on ground strokes and volleys. For this particular day, drills might include ground strokes feeds and rally, ground strokes approach shot and volley drill, volley wars drill and any other drill that fits in with the lesson. For the last 20 minutes, I either concentrate on the serve or play games. Usually with adults, we work on the serve, then end up playing some serve and rallies.

With kids, I usually dedicate the last part of the tennis lesson to some games-that way they leave with a positive attitude and have some fun. I specialize in teaching the forehand and serve. My own serve can get up to 120 mph or higher, so I understand that it takes proper tennis technique and a lot of practice to possess an effective serve.

I am available to give tennis lessons locally in the East Valley area (Chandler, Gilbert, Tempe, West Mesa and Awhatuckee), but I will also travel up to 10 miles to a local tennis court that is 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 Chandler tennis coach. I hope to see you on the court!

"I just wanted to take the time to write a review on one of the best tennis coaches I have ever had. I originally went to Chris in order to improve my overhand serve and I feel I have improved in more ways than one. Some qualities I would like to list about Chris is that he is passionate in his coaching methods, he pays attention to your wants and needs and he even comes to your matches to see what you can improve on!"
