"I work with students of all ages and abilities in group classes and private lessons and show them how to get real results in their tennis. I can show you a solution to fix and improve any area in your tennis game.
The Lifestyle Tennis Academy(LTA) was originally started by me(Patrick), with the aim of helping elite or serious tennis players "turn pro," or play the game at the highest possible levels. Having coached over hundreds of students though the last 5 years, both one on one and in group settings, I quickly realised that not everyone wants to be a professional tennis player. I did realise though, that there was a demand and NEED, for all players to receive high quality tennis coaching and guidance. So that if a player did one day want to pursue this path, or if they wanted to continually improve their tennis skills and acheive an advanced level, that it would be possible.
You see, since about the age of 7, tennis has been my number 1 passion. It has literally consumed me and not a day goes by that I don't think about playing this sport or teaching it to others. Growing up, I was fortunate in alot of ways to have great coaches and mentors. However, I still encountered alot of frustration as a player. I felt that there wasn't one single place that I could go that could take me from "just starting," in this sport and take me through the stages required to reach the highest levels possible. So ultimately, that is what the LTA is all about. Whether you aim to be a pro tennis player, College player, compete in AMT's, play in tournaments, play club competitions, get fit, have a social hit, or just be good enough to beat your friends ;) I am certain that the LTA is the right place for you!
