About John

Hello my name is John and I’m a local Sarasota tennis coach with over 30 years of playing experience and over 20 years of teaching experience! I am also an active member of both the USPTA (United States Professional Tennis Association) and the Georgia Professional Tennis Association. I played NCAA collegiate tennis where I served as co-captain of my team. I received my USPTA teaching certification back in 1992 as well as the award for Outstanding Tennis Instruction at Clemson University that same year. I also received my professional training while employed at Tennis Corporation of America and was awarded a sponsorship by Wilson Sporting Goods. I have instructed both adults and juniors of all ages, including both state and nationally ranked players. I have a passion for teaching and I am known for my patience, positive reinforcement and ability to achieve results. I also volunteer my time to a number of tennis charity events throughout metro Atlanta and have been a resident of Brookhaven since 2001.

I am available to give tennis lessons locally in the Sarasota area and I will also travel up to 5 miles to a local tennis court that’s close to you.

Please contact me through my FindTennisLessons.com 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 Sarasota tennis coach. See you on the court!

Corinne

Testimonials

"John is a great teacher, very patient but also eager to challenge you. I particularly appreciate his ability to describe concepts in different ways to help you really understand the technique!"

Cassandra

Brookhaven, Georgia

Testimonials

"In just two sessions, John has quickly identified the problems in many areas in my tennis game and provided excellent refinements to help me become more consistent and confident. I very much enjoy his positive reinforcements, post-session notes, and YouTube videos that help summarize the day's lesson. He's flexible with scheduling and location and I strongly recommend John to any player serious about improving their game!"

Ethan

Testimonials

"A wonderful instructor. I was starting from the very beginning and have seen a lot of progress. I tried different instructors and had less than great experiences that made me put off learning the game a few years. I think John would be great for all levels, but can only speak to the minor miracle he has worked with my very beginner game!"

Elizabeth

Brookhaven, Georgia

Testimonials

"My handful of lessons with John were great. He certainly seems to know what he's talking about. He was super patient when I wasn't getting a technique down right away. He even sent me a few videos after a lesson to help me visualize what we'd been working on. I would absolutely recommend John to anyone looking to improve any area of their tennis game. I know I will be taking more lessons with him in the future!"

James

Testimonials

"After many years of being on a start-stop cycle with tennis lessons, learning from John has encouraged (and enthused) me to be more consistent in the sport. John is an excellent coach who is very patient and insightful on ways to approach and ace technique (I smile thinking of all the tips he offered to help me perfect my serve.) His teaching style is fun, fresh and encouraging. And equally importantly, he is accommodating to your schedule and flexible in meeting locations. Hands down, John is the best tennis coach that I've ever had. He comes highly recommended!"
