About Jimmy

Hello my name is Jimmy and I am a local Irvine tennis coach with over 30 years of teaching experience! I am also a PTR Certified Tennis Professional. I have been playing intensely since I was 11 spanning over 40 years. I’m from Michigan & was ranked 59th in our section back in 1987 and was ranked #2 in the Midwest Men’s Open division. I played college tennis for Western Michigan University and my last year there I played #2 singles & #1 doubles with my partner Carl DeBeer. I started teaching part time when I was 16 and started coaching full time when I was 27. I have had the fortune of being mentored by professional coaches such as Oscar Wegner and Bill Adams where I learned the modern game and all of its techniques.

In addition to teaching tennis, I also teach pickleball locally as well. Please click here to visit my FindPickleballLessons.com coach page!

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 Irvine area but I will travel up to 15 miles.

Please contact me through my FindTennisLessons.com 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 Irvine tennis coach. See you out on the court!
