About Darren


​​​​Game-based: Tennis is a game and people need to learn not only how to stroke, but how to play as well.


The tactical elements and development of a player is every bit as important as their technical development. The Game-based approach maintains the fun of playing by either scaling the game down for success or placing players into commonly encountered tennis situations. Either way, players learn as they play.
