David is a gifted and dedicated tennis instructor. Rather than merely hit balls at you, David breaks down the shots, going over each move until you understand the mechanics and can capture the movement. He invents exercises on the spot to address your specific needs. My game rapidly approved under his guidance.

Dave is an awesome teacher! He has been very thorough with me, beginning with the fundamentals of whatever it is I want to learn, and he is very very patient. He never criticizes, he analyzes. He speaks softly but with authority. There are drills of every variety to suit my needs. I have received numerous complements from fellow players regarding how much my game has improved, which I figure I owe to Dave’s instruction. I would recommend lessons with Dave to anyone at any playing level. There is always room for improvement, and Dave will show you how!
I thoroughly enjoyed tonight’s meet up lesson. You asked what worked for us. I think for me, repetition really works. To do the same thing over and over again, even if it was just tossing the ball up. I’m going to play with someone tomorrow to work on what I’ve learned so far. It’s addicting. See you next week!
I have been taking private lessons with Dave over the past year to improve the accuracy of my serve. Dave is exceptionally talented at teaching the fundamentals of tennis as well as preparing me to strategically and mentally elevate my game to the most advanced level possible.
With each meeting Dave challenges me to improve my game and gives me new techniques that really work. He has transformed my serve so that I am now I’m hitting with consistency, accuracy, & power. Dave has a special gift to quickly spot what I’m doing wrong and remedy it in minutes. He conducts tennis lessons in a friendly, clear, and open way. I highly recommend Dave Hicks……. His results are truly amazing!!
