My motto: If you are too busy to go to church and hit tennis a few times a week, then you are too busy! Get out there and hit some tennis balls!

I have been playing tennis for 45 years and been coaching and giving instuction for 30+ years. I played tennis in high school and on scholarship in junior college for 2 years. I got USPTA certified in 1982 and have been coaching and giving lessons ever since. I graduated from UGA in science education and have taught physics and chemistry in high school for 34 years. I was the tennis coach at South Gwinnett and Grayson High School for 34 years. Now retired I have more time to spend on the tennis court.  For the past 8 years I have given instruction part time with Tennis for Life (TFL) at Herman C. Michael Park in Watkinsville, Georgia.  I currently am working with the Prince Avenue varsity and JV high school tennis teams for the past 4 years. I give a few private lessons out of my subdivision courts in Bogart.
