As an instructor at Castle Creek for the past 3+ years, I have worked with brand new players trying the sport for the first time to advanced level of players who regularly compete in tournaments.  

With the beginning level of players, I teach the basic rules, strokes and the strategies of the game so that they can enjoy a good level of social play.  

Being a 5.0 level player, I am able to work with the more advanced players on stroke efficiency, court placement, and break down strategic awareness appropriate to the level of competition they will face. 

Coming from a background of a wide array of paddle and racquet sports, I am also able to evaluate and teach with a perspective that will best utilize any previous racquet sport experiences you may have had.  

I am a 5.0 singles, men’s doubles, and mixed doubles player and can help you improve your game………  You can reach me at or call/text 760-215-1881
