Hi everyone! My name is Travis and I am a Lake Forest tennis coach as well as a USPTR Certified Tennis Professional with over 18 years of playing experience and over 10 years of teaching experience!
My tennis career started at the very young age of ten when my mom dragged me to my first tennis lesson (well not dragged). From there I fell in love with the sport. I had tennis lessons at Lake Forest Sun & Sail Club and learned the fundamentals of the game. At the club I started playing junior tennis tournaments. Then I moved to the old Vic Braden Tennis Academy located in Coto De Caza and advanced my tennis game to a whole new level. My game grew because I was home schooled and could play five hours a day. When high school came along, I went to El Toro High School in Lake Forest where my playing position there was #1 singles on the varsity tennis team.
I continued playing tennis at Saddleback College where I played #2 & #3 singles as well as doubles. My game progressed especially on the mental side. After Saddleback College, I then continued adult tournaments and started training with my coach and roommate, tennis coach Hanley Ernst, whom was introduced to me at college.
He has taught me more then I could of ever imagined. My strokes and knowledge of the game before him were good, but then after training with him, they became more professional quality. Besides strokes, he taught me how to train better, to eat better and much more. I became a confident, well rounded tennis coach and am now able to pass on the technique and mental game to my own students.
I was an assistant tennis coach at San Juan Hills High School, group and camp tennis instructor at Ladera Ranch Tennis Club and I was also a group and hitting tennis instructor at Racquet Club of Irvine.
Now I specialize in private tennis lessons where I can travel to my student’s locations. I help students by recording their technique so they can visualize their game and they can become the player they want to be. I teach tennis lessons locally in the Lake Forest area-but I am willing to travel up to 20 miles to a local tennis court near you.
Please feel free to 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, 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 Lake Forest tennis coach. I hope to see you on the court!
