About PJ


Hello my name is PJ and I am a local Hicksville tennis coach with over 16 years of playing experience and over 3 years of teaching experience! I enjoy playing tennis more than watching. As far as my teaching style, I like to start with a warm up and stretch and then like working into ball controlling, wrist management and leg movement.

I then move to mid court rallies and then slowly move to base line and half court. After that I work on volleys, overhead smashes and the serving game along with playing out game points. Depending on the person, the learning process is different. Patience is the key. I am also an engineer & I love technology. I really enjoy playing the great game of tennis and teach it in the right way starting with the basics.

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 locally in the Hicksville area over at Oyster Bay Club, Hicksville Middle School, Plainview Community School, Syosset High School but will travel up to 15 miles to a tennis court 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 Hicksville tennis coach. See you on the court!

"PJ is a wonderful coach. I am taking up tennis again after over 20 years. He really helps me with the fundamentals. He constantly critiques my technique and helps me to understand and to adopt the correct form. He mixes things up and he focuses on my entire game. He is patient and encouraging and he is firmly committed to improving my game and to help me to achieve my goals. I definitely recommend him to other players whether they are beginners or they need to tune up their game!"

"I found while searching for tennis lessons for me and my friend. My inquiry was answered quickly and I was put in touch with a local tennis coach. Coach PJ explained how the lessons and rates worked and coordinated our schedules allowing for weekly lessons. He is a wealth of information, giving clear instruction for rules, skills, etc. I am very pleased with my improvement at tennis!"

"In a short amount of time Coach PJ has transformed my game. I am able to rally a lot better, he changed my grip and I have a lot more confidence when I play in general. Coach PJ does a really good job of running drills that focus on your areas of need and he is always really honest with you in your progression. I want to start playing in tournaments by the end of summer 2021 and I believe I am well on my way. In addition, Coach PJ is always punctual and fun to work with!"
