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!
