About Jerry

Hi my name is Jerry and I am a Philadelphia tennis coach ready to serve you! I have been involved in tennis for over 30 years and I am a USPTR Certified Tennis Professional. I ran an outdoor tennis club for five summers and now teach 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). I’ve been involved over the years in all aspects of tennis (teaching, playing and tennis facility overview).

I took my certification when Dennis Van Der Meer was actively running the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) and I have been on men’s USTA teams for many years. I have access to indoor public courts when weather makes it necessary, but I customarily use outdoor public courts that are well maintained by the township that I live in. In my teaching, I try to mix stroke production with strategy and also introduce lesser used specialty strokes such as the topspin lob and the drop shot to give tennis players an “all court game”.

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 teach in the Greater Philadelphia & Eastern Montgomery County areas and I will travel up to 15 miles. I look forward to helping your tennis game as your Philadelphia tennis coach and we’ll see you on the court!

"Jerry is great! I've been working with him for more than 2 years. I play at about a 3.5/4 level. He can run a variety of drills tailored to your interest to improve any aspect of your game, from ground strokes to serving to volleys to specific situations or strategy. I am definitely a better player because of Jerry!"
