Hello my name is Derrick and I am a Las Vegas tennis coach with over 15 years of playing experience and over 12 years of teaching experience! In addition, I’m a USPTA Certified Tennis Professional.
I was ranked as high as #1 in the nation (singles & doubles), played in the Junior US OPEN in 2001, played tennis for 6th ranked Texas A&M University and I was a former USTA Regional Training Center Coach and USTA Zonal Coach. Building a strong technical foundation by focusing on the biomechanics of the body is the key to stroke and movement production while solidifying your basic fundamentals.
An open door, open mind outlook is essential to progressing your skills as a coach. After having attended USTA coaching symposiums, USPTA conventions and even hosting coaching clinics for other pros, I’ve learned so much about the game. Being able to convey all the information in the “students learning language” is important so the student can interpret and apply. I teach tennis lessons locally in Las Vegas, Summerlin, Spring Valley, Henderson and Paradise. I am also willing to travel up to 20 miles to a local tennis court that is 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 Las Vegas tennis coach. I hope to see you out on the court!
