About Chris

Hello my name is Chris and I am a local Chicago tennis coach with over 23 years of playing experience and over 17 years of teaching experience! I truly love the game of tennis. Since the age of 9, I have been a student of the game. Learning quickly while having tons of fun made the game of tennis stick with me. I was able to quickly pick it up and have played national junior tennis tournaments all over the country and I have also earned a collegiate tennis scholarship to the University of Toledo (UT) in the process. Tennis is an easy sport that I believe we choose to make hard. With me, you will learn those basic fundamentals that will allow the great game of tennis to come to you very easily-enabling you to enjoy tennis for years to come at any age.

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 Chicago at various locations and I am also willing to travel up to 5 miles to a court that’s conveniently near you.

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 Chicago tennis coach. See you on the court!

"Couldn't have asked for a better experience in getting tennis lessons in the Chicago area. Super reasonable prices, flexible scheduling, there is no upcharge for couples lessons. Always on time (or early, in fact), always high energy, always positive. Runs useful drills and provides useful feedback. My tennis game has improved a ton after just a few tennis lessons and I am looking forward to working with Chris into the future!"

"My tennis lesson with Chris was very enjoyable. Despite the fact that the courts were partially wet, I was slipping, and it was early in the morning for me. After the lesson, I felt awesome and energized for the day. Chris has a great attitude, makes things very simple and genuinely wants to help you improve. I have been looking for a coach for about two years. I am very picky when it comes to choosing a coach. Of all the coaches I tried, Chris is definitely my favorite coach and I am going to stick with him. I look forward to taking much more lessons from him!"
