BackHand City Instructors

Tennis Twins of Miami classes start in September 2018.

Meet Nona and Djina.

I've interviewed over 125 tennis professionals over the last 14 years and hired about 16 instructors over that time span.  One thing that stood out as we went through the 3-month hiring process were these consistent values: great energy, confidence and reliablity on amd off the tennis court.  These young ladies have the intelligence and people skills that set them apart from any of the tennis professionals I've hired over this span.

Oh yeah! They hit rocket forehands too.  So if you are looking for a bit of inspiration you came to the right place. Stay tuned to Backhand City as  Twins of Miami launch in Sept 2018.

Founder / Backhand City


I've been enthusiastically teaching tennis since 1986.  I remember vividly I used my first paycheck to buy a Sony CD player at the local mall.  I still have the player sitting in my entertainment center as it resides next to my more efficient and modern MP3 player. 

Today my inspirations blends tried and true fundamentals with new innovative breakthroughs not unlike the products that sit under my TV stand.  My methodology consists of adapating a students natural bio-mechanics with modern swing technique. Once these fundamentals become more consistent we work into specific situation drills that come up the most during recreational play with fun and engaging team building exercises.

There will be times when the "wheels fall off" your tennis game.  My system allows the art of self discovery to be the core value of what we teach. This self awareness encourages students to have their own "aha moments" creating deeper understanding in themselves and their tennis game so when their game gets in a bad patch they have the resources within themselves to make modifications in the moment.


Feeling inspired?  Join me in class to self discover your tennis game. We have NOVICE, ADV BEG, INTERMEDIATE and ADV CLASSES to choose from based in Coconut Grove area of Miami, FL.

You can keep up with my daily thoughts on these matters and more from running one's own tennis business on my blog here on Backhand City and on my Instagram page.
