About Harlan

Hello my name is Harlan and I am a local Dallas tennis coach with over 45 years of playing experience and over 25 years of teaching experience! I am also a USPTA Certified Tennis Professional and I was formerly the Director of Tennis at Veranda Club and Spa located at the Hilton Anatole Hotel. In addition, I’m currently a USTA national tournament player in Men’s 60’s singles (#2 Texas & #56 in the U.S.).

Would you like to improve your tennis game and win tournaments? Learning the sport of tennis makes the sport much more enjoyable. Together we can work on all aspects of the game including stroke technique, match play development and your overall performance enhancement. Whether you are looking to excel to the highest levels or improve in your league, you’ve come to the right place-I can help!

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 the Dallas, Plano, Frisco and Irving areas but I am willing to travel up to 25 miles to a tennis court that is 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 Dallas tennis coach. See you out on the court!

Teaching Area


"After loving the sport of tennis my whole life, but never really learning how to play, I decided to jump in and take lessons. Coach Harlan has been the perfect tennis coach for me! He taught me the fundamentals of ground strokes, serving and volleying, and is the right combination of hard work, motivation and patience with this adult beginner. I've had a blast working with Harlan and after just a handful of lessons, I'm ready to play!"

"I had a tremendous experience with Harlan as my tennis instructor. Harlan started teaching me the fundamentals of the game, the proper stance, execution of forehand and backhand strokes, lob, the overhead hit, drop shot, and volley. Harlan instructed me on the technique of the serve which is probably the most difficult instructing challenge as the pupil must focus on stance, proper toss of ball, and execution of the serve-hitting the ball in a specific area of the court. His instruction and patience was incredible working with me ball after ball, encouraging me all the way!"

"My girlfriend and I scheduled joint tennis lessons with Harlan, and he has been nothing but excellent. He tailors the lesson to your skills (non-existent in our case) and keeps it interesting with different drills and exercises. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a tennis professional to improve their game!"

"My stepson just had one lesson today and said he learned more today than he did in an entire year with his school tennis coach! Harlan is so personable and great with kids. He is very positive and patient!"
