Click here for ORIOLES TENNIS ACADEMY Summer 2019

I love this game. I've worked very hard over the last 20 years to become a solid USTA league and tournament player. I've acquired a ton of knowledge from more hours of matches, lessons, clinics, and drills than I care to count. Some teaching pros are better players than me, but I'm a very good instructor precisely because I learned tennis as an adult, and I was able to learn from some of the greatest instructors around. I love coaching the Boys and Girls teams at Osseo Senior High and teaching this sport, and its life lessons, more than I ever thought possible. I am a certified Professional by the USPTA. I will help you learn and improve and have fun — this is my way of giving back to the sport.
