About Tony

Hello my name is Tony and I am a local Des Plaines tennis coach with over 42 years of playing experience and over 21 years of teaching experience! I’m a seasoned instructor who teaches all levels of tennis players from beginners, to intermediate, to advanced and I can help you improve your stroke techniques, your serve and playing strategy.

I have a critical eye to correct bad habits, can make refinements to your game and I teach plyometrics to my tennis students so they can gain exceptional performance. I’ve also provided some other tennis instructors with remedies for problem issues and introduced them to different drills to improve their students. I get most of my students from referrals of people who I have taught or am currently teaching.

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 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 at Maine West High School in Des Plaines but I am also willing to travel up to 10 miles to a tennis court close to 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 Des Plaines tennis coach. See you on court!
