Tennisopolis : Tennis Social Network

Hi,

I recently came across a kid (13 y/o) who is looking for some tennis instruction in Riverside, CA.  According to his dad, he has never played before and it sounds like they are looking for something recreational or something "cheaper" to see if he would enjoy it and do well. 

Anyone know of some tennis programs in the area? I've been recommended Andulka and Victoria Club but the instruction in both those places might be a bit pricey...it doesn't have to be at a club either...know any smaller programs?...or relatively inexpensive private coaches?

Please let me know and i will pass the info along!  Thnx!

If cost is a major issue, and if they don't mind student players or young coaches to teach them the basics, they can try to post an ad on Craigslist. Cheap coaches can be had for $15-20/hr instead of $50-70 for a good one. Can work their way up until they can justify the $70/hr level.
that's true...they found me thru craigslist actually...i was hoping to get a recommendation as well .. I would hate to send them to someone who doesn't know how to teach the basics...

I saw your post for a coach in Corona area. I am in San Dimas and have been coaching for 14 years and played on the pro satellite circuit, USPTR Certified. What exactly are you looking for for the juniors, how many?

Let me know

O wow...dunno how i missed this Michael ... apologies...there are 2 kids ages 5 and 7 ... with their mom's and kids's busy schedule, it's getting harder and harder for them to come hit with me...i think they prefer some instruction more in their area.  As for pricing, they are looking for something "inexpensive" i dunno if it will be worth your while but i will send people your way as i hear about them :)

 

BTW, i thing i met you briefly once during tri level sectionals. You were playing in the opposite flight..too bad we didn't get a chance to play each other...hope you're still playing!

wow that's great! That's nestled amongst a bunch of business type buildings right? Across from AppleBees and south of Terra Vista center?  There are two tennis courts with lights...i go by it all the time when im on Aspen!  Not looking for instruction myself but might drop by the pro shop some time to pick up a few things!
