Further information

Currently working at Silver Creek Valley Country Club – more to follow.

AVAC – Almaden Valley Athletic Club was my previous home base.  We had 10 Led lite hard courts with 5 of the courts lined for Red, Orange and Green Ball programs and 2 viewing decks for observing lessons, match play and USTA  Adult and Junior Leagues. Our program was very active and welcome new members. Our ROG program is headed by PTR and USPTA Professional Al Juodikis

Other features at AVAC include a new fitness center, child care center, cafe, outdoor swimming pool and one of the finest indoor swim schools around.

Here is Ken showing some of his tips using the BJK Eye Coach and a ball machine amongst other practise tools.

This is Ken with some of his clients from PTR, AVAC and Wilson


I first discovered tennis as a freshman in college, went to K-Mart and bought my first Wilson racquet and a can of Wilson balls and began to play.  3 years later I won the conference doubles championships at #3 doubles and was co-MVP my senior year.

I was certified in the PTR with Van der Meer in 1976 and the USPTA with Bill Tym and have been teaching as a Director of Tennis for the past 45 plus years at major facilities in Nashville, Phoenix, Atlanta and San Jose. 1983-1985 I served as the PTR’s first Executive Director on Hilton Head Island, SC.

My teaching is a common sense approch to instruction that can easily be applied to performance by students of all ages and ability levels. I have 7 dvd’s on Drills for Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced players, Defeating the Monsters in Your Mind, Corrective Techniques and Myth Busting, 20 Best Games, 50 Best Tennis Tips and many Utube tennis tips.

We use video, targets, Billie Jean King Eye Coach and any visual aid to help students evaluate direction, depth, spin and speed of their shots.  Choosing the correct words to help players have a “word picture” is critical to improved performance and retention.
