About Matt

Hello my name is Matt and I am a local Cleveland tennis coach with over 30 years of playing experience and over 12 years of teaching experience! I have played tennis since I was in grade school so I have a real passion for the game. I have worked with all ages (5-65) including beginners through advanced students. Here are some specific skills that we can cover based upon your tennis goals:

Grips (Continental, Eastern, Semi-Western, Western)
Ground Strokes (Forehand, Backhand)
Spin (Topspin, Flat, Slice)
Placement (Cross-Court, Down The Line, Inside Out)
Volleys (Forehand, Backhand)
Serves (Topspin, Flat, Slice, Kick)
Service Return (Unit Turn, Blocking)
Overheads (Smash, Backhand Overhead)
Scoring (Points, Games, Sets, Tie-Breakers)

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 all skill levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced). So whether you need to work on 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 outdoors in Rocky River at Rocky River Middle School, in Cleveland at Jefferson Park and in Parma at Veteran’s Memorial Park.

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 Cleveland tennis coach. See you on the court!

Teaching Area


"After spending many sessions with my 15 year old daughter, I saw that Matthew has the ability to identify specific needs quickly, communicate effectively towards the student's needs, and is passionate of the student's success. I enjoyed watching my daughter, Hannah, work together with Matthew. He really brought new confidence to Hannah, and he was also passionate about her succeeding. Although this year's tennis season is coming to a close soon, my daughter and I would like to continue sessions next season. Thank you!"
