I've known Susan Nardi for over 20 years; When I think of 10 and Under tennis there are few coaches who top my list, Susan is an national expert in this area of tennis. Additionally, as a tester for the PTR Susan has motivated many professionals to further their education and many more to become certified. Susan is always on the cutting edge looking for new ways to maximize student's performance in the shortest time span. She has managed clubs as well as 10 and under programs with great success. Her energy and connection with parents and students is unmatched which is a necessity for the 10 and under market.

Susan is one of best at applying head and heart knowledge to what she does on the court. She is a broad student of the game, learning and motivation and knows how to get kids to respond. If you have anything to do with kid's tennis then you need to listen and learn from what Susan does on the court.

Gary Avischious President & Head Coach Coaching School


A few years ago my daughter began taking tennis lessons with Susan Nardi, little did I know about what would take place after those initial lessons. My daughter embraced the teaching and guidance that she received from Susan with great results. Susan's detailed knowledge and approach were wonderful as neither my daughter nor myself had any prior tennis experience. To this day Susan still mentors and trains my daughter in her tennis development. My daughter's confidence grew by leaps and bounds as she really flourished under Susan's developmental coaching style. I would highly recommend Susan, whether you are an experienced player or a novice like me.
