About Joe

Hello my name is Joe and I am a local Mission Viejo tennis coach in Southern Orange County with over 35 years of playing experience and over 15 years of teaching experience! I am local to Mission Viejo and have played on various tennis teams in Irvine and Rancho Santa Margarita. I am still a competitive singles player with a very regular, vigorous training schedule and have won various singles & doubles tournaments at different levels through years of playing. I currently coach at V&V Tennis Academy at the Laguna Niguel Racquet Club.

Tennis is a challenging sport which requires ease of flow married with complex neuro-physical functions. I break down each movement precisely into zen-like focus steps which then promotes accelerated learning. I am very proud of my record of having absolute beginners play quality matches within no time. One of the perks I also offer is isolation on the mental component of sport. As a competing player, I understand the myriad of variables that can affect sound play. These elements are what I like to bring out in my tennis students on court-how to play their best when the situation can be disadvantageous.

I am especially good with children as well. I have several protocols in place to teach them coordination while progressively enhancing their on-court self esteem. I teach tennis lessons in the Mission Viejo area at Pittsford Park but will also travel up to 13 miles to a court near you.

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!

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 Mission Viejo tennis coach. See you on court!

Teaching Area


"What I found interesting about the way Joe instructs his lesson is that he goes far beyond the repetition of mechanics. It is fun to do drills, don’t get me wrong. But there were times where my shot selection was not the best and Joe was a great in breaking down my decisions. Sometimes it had nothing to do with tennis and I brought it onto the court anyway. By the way, his drills are really effective. He inserts a lot of secret pro tricks that had a sizable impact on my learning curve!”

"We have tried out as many as 6 coaches and none were able to build rapport as quickly as Joe has. My son cannot wait for his lesson each week!"
