Tennis Lessons

 Hello Tennis Families,

I am looking forward to working with all of you this summer.  This will be my fifth year as the Aqua Club Head Tennis Pro and my thirteenth year coaching tennis at Shorecrest High School. I love tennis and have a passion to develop a program that gets people of all levels and all ages enjoying tennis.  I do hope to get some younger players interested in playing on tennis team.  This is why I have created a pre-tennis team for the younger or less skilled players who aren’t quite ready for the tennis team, but have the desire to be part of the team.

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.

Daniel Wacker who is a two-time doubles state champion will be coaching again this year.  He brings knowledge and skills needed to help all of our tennis students improve. Also, Bella Saunders who is a two time state qualifier will be coaching as well.
