Tennis Philosophy / Goal


“Play to Win!!!- no matter what your age or level my goal is for everyone we work with is to “feel success”.   Success can be getting your first tennis ball over the net, maybe making a shot you have never made, it could be finally winning your first match, or beating someone you have never beat.   Tennis is a game with so many surprises and joys.   So our  hope to you is that you catch the tennis fever, savor the emotions it creates, and buckle your seat belt for your “Tennis Adventure”.
