TOTAL TENNIS INSTRUCTION
"Master the stroke ... win the match!"
Serving the San Francisco Bay Area
Serving the San Francisco Peninsula
Our goal is to provide the finest training available for helping to make you the best tennis player possible. We want each player to have confidence & know that his/her game is of the highest quality with a technical foundation that provides this result. We spend a lot of time optimizing each of the basic tennis strokes; forehand, backhand, serve & volley.
The forehand may be your most versatile stroke. We build the basics to allow you to hit with different levels of topspin as well generate pace when needed. With these fundamentals, control & placement of your shot will be the reward to offer the winning touch.
With either a one handed or a two handed backhand, this can become your most natural stroke. Initially the backhand may feel very foreign & not natural. With the proper technique you will quickly gain real pleasure from the freedom to rip the ball with your backhand.
The serve will become the foundation of your game. Pace is not the key but having the ability to have a variety (flat, slice & spin) of serves with placement will bring the service game to your win column. Winning your serve game is essiential.
From years of playing & coaching the volley, it is the most fun for many players. It is also the easiest part of the game with the technical aspects in place. Learning the volley properly will clearly enhance your forehand & backhand as well as offer you a complete game arsenal.
FOOTWORK, MOVEMENT & FOCUS
Playing tennis offers wonderful exercise for conditioning & cardio workouts. Your movement is critical to optimizing execution of the strokes. Movement can be quite easy but requires very specific balance & footwork. There is a simple 'dance step' that becomes fundamental for moving about the court. Proper 'tennis focus' & concentration techniques will bring the winning formula.
