About Don




Hi my name is Coach Don and I am a local Houston tennis coach! I am also a PTR Certified Tennis Teaching Professional. I have been certified through the PTR for over 20 years and have been teaching tennis for over 35 years. In 1987, I co-founded Kids N’ Tennis, Inc. which is a non-profit tennis organization that has partnerships with many communities and national organizations. Some of these are the United States Tennis Association, the American Tennis Association and the United Professional Tennis Registry. We also have partnered with Portland Parks and Recreation and the Portland Tennis Center since our inception. We work with local schools, businesses and also other community-based agencies to help promote the great sport of tennis, education and health through nutritional, sports and life skills curriculums. Our Kids N’ Tennis program has rallied tennis enthusiast of all ages to assist in promoting tennis and helping mentor kids to improve their educational goals while providing community service opportunities for volunteers to participate in this “Sport of a Lifetime.”

Kids N’ Tennis is a non-profit organization: its mission is to increase the number of inner-city junior tennis players by establishing a total comprehensive junior tennis program that is culturally and ethnically diversified and affordable for every participant. Our goal is to provide reduced and also free lessons to children that have been historically underrepresented in tennis and to train coaches who are interested in working in our junior development and tennis academy programs.

Kids N’ Tennis’ objective is to use tennis as a vehicle to teach and reinforce educational, social and life skills through a sport which offers boys and girls similar opportunities for success. Our outreach targets children who are minority, at-risk and/or from lower income households. Its mission as a community tennis association is to then introduce tennis to children through tennis assemblies at some local elementary, middle schools, tennis clinics and other special events.

I’m sharing this information with you about Kids N’ Tennis because I teach tennis to kids exclusively-with my primary focus on the juniors ages 8-19 years old. Junior lessons are for intermediate & advanced tournament level tennis players (USTA Levels 5,6,7 & UTR 2.5 to 6).

I teach tennis lessons in Houston at Lee LeClear Tennis Center and I do not travel at this time to any other locations in the Houston area.

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 private, semi-private or group tennis lesson 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 Houston tennis coach on court!
