I Absolutely Love Tennis!
My Passion and Purpose
The picture to the left was snapped on July 3, 1981 when I was 3 years old and it 100% captures the unbridled love I have for the game of tennis. I have always loved this sport (well, except for the time I threw my aluminum Donnay racket in the kitchen trash can for 2 hours when I was 6 because I couldn’t figure out how to hit a slice backhand – don’t worry, I made sure the handle was sticking out for all to see, and once I was certain my parent’s believed my bluff I quickly rescued the racket and proceeded to the backyard to continue to figure out how to hit slices over a rope net strung between two lawn chairs) and it is my passion now to teach it to others.
Everyone at Racket Land loves the game and we derive a deep sense of joy and satisfaction in sharing our knowledge with our students. There is nothing better than seeing the “light bulb” moments in students eyes when they make a new connection between our 7 Rules of Tennis (5 Minute Tips, Mental Money, etc) and real life, on-court scenarios. Gives us goosebumps every time!

Comprehensive Video Instruction
Strokes, footwork, fitness and preparation
We are passionate about clearly articulating everything from broad concepts to the most minor of details. Our experience of being lifelong students of the game gives us a unique ability to offer insight that leads to improvement for all levels of play.
5 Minute Fixes
Short, concise, easy to understand
5 Minute Fixes are quick, concise videos that help to fix common mistakes we have run across over our decades coaching and competing at the highest levels. These fixes cover forehands, backhands, serve, volleys, footwork, returns, overheads and more.
Strategy & Mental Toughness
Control your mind, influence the outcome
The ability to master your mind and adhere to or modify a strategy in the heat and stress of a match is a skill too many players at all levels neglect to develop. Our mental toughness and strategy sessions offer several useful frameworks and mental viewpoints to help you excel in the most pressure-packed situations.
Our Students Stories
Their ability to explain complex concepts in an easily understandable way is second to none.
Brandon worked with our 7th grade daughter for 2 months and helped her make the middle school team. She had so much fun at the lessons and really picked up his crystal clear concepts quickly!
Mother of Middle Schooler
I worked with Brandon for a week prior to USTA 60+ Nationals in South Florida. His detailed observations led to a couple of minor tweaks that gave me an extra edge during tournament week. Highly recommended!
USTA Senior Competitor
Brandon's tennis knowledge is top notch, but what I like most is his easy demeanor and friendly instruction style. His deep love for the game comes through in all he does.
Brandon does an outstanding job tailoring instruction to each individual. His ability to connect with and help a wide variety of skill levels is rare.
