“Freddie is a gifted tennis player and talented instructor. He is patient and at the same time persuasive in teaching the correct techniques. I have improved my stroke-play, positioning and technique considerably with his tips. He is always ready to give suggestions on how to improve one’s game. He keeps the class going with his drills and the class is over even before we realize it. It’s a lot of fun! I recommend Freddy to anyone who wants to improve their game or wants to learn tennis from the start!” Arun M.
