For the maestros among us! PLEASE NOTE: Start time for this event is now a HALF-HOUR earlier. Location may change at least once per month and can no longer be held at No Ho High. We have two Plan B venues for now, one for the first two weeks of the month, one for the last two. (The 9 a.m. group offering has been deleted for now, but could be revived at a later date.)

This is a weekly Saturday morning meetup for up to five players (including myself) who would like to up-level their games through contemplating basic tips from the classic game while participating in skill enhancing drills. The average NTRP rating system ranking for attendees in these meetups is about 4.0.

The Saturday meetups which are for now just two group offerings will use the two alternate venues during this period of reconstruction at our preferred location. You will need to contact me directly at least 24 hours ahead (highly recommended) to confirm the current weekend s venue.) I expect these changes to spice things up a bit.

FYI, I decided to decline the option to hand my book over to the Tennis Hall of Fame because in the fine print they informed me that I would no longer own the rights to it. However, the much postponed publication of The History of USA Tennis Instruction in which my work receives mention early and within the chapters on unacknowledged grassroots coaches is still pending. My work is included as the first such effort by someone of my description, aka black or African American writer/tennis pro, but also because I dared to reaffirm obvious truths about our beloved sport which had been denied or were in process of being buried as I wrote. The new release date of the History is April 2020, but excerpts are here: https://www.moderntenniscoaches.com/foundation-501-c3

Please plan ahead to arrive in time as this is a 90 minute meetup. I m always early.

Minimum 24 hour notice is recommended if you are TRULY interested.

Skill level is usually 4.0 plus or minus half a point!

Here is a little more information on my background. I have been coaching tennis for well over two decades. When the tennis powers that be decided to turn our graceful, exciting sport into a boring baseline slug fest, tossing out the classic backhand with the bathwater, I resisted and have trained countless players in the traditional fundamentals of tennis which lead to effortless all-court coverage, accuracy, variety, finesse and power... Side benefits for those who follow my guidance are greatly decreased incidence of tennis related injuries. I am very involved in most of the workout groups, thus in fact I am a player-coach . (Grace of God, I have never experienced more than an occasional minor strain that clears up within minutes to hours usually, but always fewer than 48 hours.)

You can check the >MORE >Message Board for a couple of threads on things like tendonitis plus an excellent find on the importance of hydration and good body chemistry called Be Healthy Now .

One of the things that I intend for you to achieve by means of these meetups is flexibility, the understanding an error can be like a blip on a screen that need not become the defining statement on your abilities. Rather, as a former mentor of mine used to say, "let it roll off you like water off a duck s back." There are countless means of bringing your attention back to the current moment, to the next ball that is already upon you. We make multiple errors when we stay stuck with the shot that is over, even a second ago. My background in Inner Tennis informs this aspect of our events. Tim Galwey s definition of Tennis for higher consciousness is my personal path.

Anyone that attends my groups with an open mind, ready to possibly look at their game from a slightly different perspective is usually pleasantly surprised. The final half hour of any group comprises doubles play or other competition.

Please message (TEXT preferred) any question/comment..
