About James

Hello my name is James and I am a local Sacramento tennis coach with over 40 years of playing experience and over 30 years teaching experience! I am very patient and use demonstration, visualization and practice to help you achieve your maximum tennis potential. I have taught students as young as three years old and coached my son who trained with top players in Barcelona, Spain. I was taught by renowned coach John Nogrady and trained at the Port Washington Tennis Academy. I have played in junior tennis tournaments in the past and can help you learn to play tennis to the best of your ability.

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 all skill levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced). So whether you need to work on 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’m available to give tennis lessons at River Pointe in Sacramento but I will travel up to 15 miles to a tennis court location 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 Sacramento tennis coach. I hope to see you out on the court!
