Nicolas is a smart coach who builds on foundations and slowly but surely transformed my game. He gets results, over three months I progressed from C player standard to becoming the B singles club tournament champ. He has great tips on strategy and maximising potential no matter what your skill level is. He is easy to get along with but also pushes hard so you can achieve your best tennis.

Wanted to say thank you for everything mentally that you helped me with. I was playing against a player who was solid and I lost the first set 6-1 but then I did some techniques you taught me before the points and won the second set 7-6 and 10-3 the third set. I can only thank you for helping me when you were my coach, so I wanted to say thank you!

Hi Nicolas,

Just wanted to say that you are a great Coach and I had so much fun in your classes. Thank you for being so awesome. I mean it so sincerely and I know others feel the same way about you.

Hey Nick,

You almost killed me many times. My mind overpowers the limits of my body. I was a great thing. I don´t belive in babying! Good way to get the dust off my game and to learn… «get thrown back in the tennis court.» It was fun, great season!
