Hi my name is Angela and I am a local Van Nuys tennis coach with over 30 years of teaching experience! I am also a USPTA Certified Tennis Professional, PPR (Pickleball Certified), Net Generation and Safe Play certified as well. As a high performance tennis coach, I have worked with all levels of players throughout my career. I have recently moved from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, where I taught in one of the top 25 tennis resorts in the nation. I currently work at Braemar Country Club giving tennis lessons and clinics to adults and juniors and doing both winter and summer tennis camps.
I also work for both TGA/USTA in their tennis enrichment program and was given the opportunity to write lesson plans using the Net Generation platform. In addition, I wrote tennis lesson plans for the USTA’s PE pilot program to introduce tennis as a PE class in schools.
Growing up playing tennis and then later teaching it, I’m fully familiar with all the aspects of fully developing a tennis player’s foundations that include all of the technical, strategic, and mental aspects of the game with stroke production and footwork. I truly enjoy helping new players develop into great tennis players who can build on their solid foundations and take their tennis games to any level of their desired path. My players have played the national, international and the ITF level. Most of them also received full tennis scholarships to American universities given their high level of competitive tennis background. I also was the only coach to my daughter, Diana Donoslovic, who then played Division 1 tennis on a scholarship and tried out the pro tour.
I have an extensive background as a tennis player. I competed on the European Circuit and was a member of the Yugoslavian (now Serbia) national team on the junior level as well as on the Federation Cup. I have also won several national championships in several categories. Competing at the highest national and international level has helped me understand what is needed to create a successful player. I have and am constantly building up my level of understanding as well as knowledge in real time with having the experience of working with hundreds of students and using every opportunity to read, to watch videos, attend workshops so that I can enhance my knowledge and understanding of the game that I spent all my life playing/teaching.
I teach tennis lessons in the Van Nuys area over at the Balboa Tennis Center but I will also travel up to 15 miles to a tennis court near 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 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 Van Nuys tennis coach. I will see you out on the tennis court!
