Thanks for asking!

As a club-level tennis player in Southern California, I found my
skills improved most rapidly though the prestigious Vic Braden Tennis
College program. The intensive three day clinics and personalized
instruction sessions were just the ticket to provide breakthroughs in
various aspects of my game. Though not quite in the Los Angeles area,
the College sessions at Rancho Mirage Country Club (Palm Springs area)
are within practical traveling distance. During the College clinics,
the coaches and instructors are also excellent people to consult for
recommendation of a personal tennis pro or coach, since they are able
to see and diagnose your game and strokes, and recommend teaching
professionals matched to your specific needs.
