About Jim

Hello my name is Jim and I am a local Lansdale tennis coach with over 32 years of playing experience and over 26 years of teaching experience! I am ready to get you kick-started on the tennis court with FUN, Fire and “Flavor”! Whether it’s as a high school coach (7 years), college coach (20 years) or club pro, I bring an unparalleled level of enthusiasm, positivity and FUN out onto the tennis courts!

As a 20 year former Director of Physical Education/Health at a local high school and a standout tri-sport athlete (tennis, hockey, soccer), I often coach tennis with a multi-dimensional approach incorporating footwork, recovery, strategic and anticipatory skills. The success is evident with the Gwynedd Mercy University team that needed to be completely overhauled & then immediately re-wrote the conference record books, became perennial conference champions and went to the conference finals 15 times as well as to the prestigious National NCAA tournament 12 times. I also coached 2 USTA (United States Tennis Association) women’s teams (Simply Smashing & Young at Heart) to sectionals, missing nationals by 1 point! In addition, I taught private, semi-private and group lessons for all ages and skill levels for 2 major clubs in the Philadelphia region for well over 13 years.

I’m offering these high-quality sessions outdoors to those interested in ratcheting up their ALL COURT game and also for those who want to become more competitive during match play. During my lessons, increased consistency with the variety of groundstrokes, serves and aggressive net play will be emphasized along with some specialty shots such as drop shots, specific lobs and low and behold….the oh-so underrated half-volley! In addition, I will help you strategize with shot selection and placement in singles and (especially) doubles!

I teach tennis lessons in the Lansdale area but I am also willing to travel up to 10 miles to a tennis court that is conveniently near you.

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 Lansdale tennis coach. See you on the court!

Lansdale Tennis Coach Jim


"Jim has been coaching my senior teams for over five years. When we first met him he was coaching college tennis & was very skilled & knowledgeable about how to coach a team to become a winning team. He was able to take his talents and use them to coach senior women so that we were successful in our league and we have been to our sectional playoffs in our region for each year since he began coaching us. He has some unique drills that are very effective in teaching certain aspects of the game. We credit him with our improved skills over the time he has been our coach. In addition, Jim is very fun to have as a coach and we always have a great time when we are on the court with him!"
