Hello Tennis Families,
I am looking forward to working with all of you this summer. This will be my fourth year as the Aqua Club Head Tennis Pro and my twelfth year coaching tennis. I strive to develop and grow a competitive tennis team. Last year we had 28 participants on the tennis team ranging from advanced beginners to top varsity level players. I hope to see many more on the team this year.
Lessons are a critical part to improving fundamentals of the game. My goal is to make every tennis lesson fun and educational so that students will continue to improve their skills. Tennis is a lifetime sport that anyone can pursue and I hope that all Aqua Club students will continue to play tennis for the rest of their lives.
I am excited to welcome back my assistant Daniel Wacker who is a two-time doubles state champion. He brings knowledge and skills needed to help all of our tennis students improve.
