About James

Hello my name is James and I’m a fun, local Mesa tennis coach with over 24 years of playing experience and over 11 years of teaching experience! I am also a PTR Certified Tennis Professional. I played for Mesa Community College (NJCAA Division 1) for 2 years and then became their assistant tennis coach for 2 years after ranking MCC #14 in the nation. After college, I was hired to coach at a private club in Yuma, AZ for 4 years and moved back down to Mesa to continue my education in sports science and computer technology while also coaching part-time privately. A few of my tennis students have had much success in playing tennis-winning championships, ranking for junior and senior high schools as well as ranking at the college level.

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 Mesa area at Freestone Park, Mcqueen Park, Kleiman Park and Gilbert Regional Park but I will also travel up to 20 miles to a tennis court that is conveniently located close to you.

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 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 Mesa tennis coach. See you out on the court!

Teaching Locations


"Coach James has been very patient with me and gives great instruction. I never thought I would be good at any sports since I'm not very athletic, but I now have so much fun playing tennis with my friends since they have got me into the sport and I can't thank James enough. He is also teaching my son to get onto the high school team!"
