My name is Jim Martinez and I’m a local San Clemente tennis coach with over 35 years of playing experience and over 30 years of teaching experience! I am also a USPTA Certified Tennis Professional. I am a dedicated tennis professional, accomplished at the instruction of tennis fundamentals from basic grip and stance to competitive tactics and applications. Having taught in over 7 countries and played in over 50, I have become an expert in training strategies on and off the tennis court including physical conditioning and mental game preparation.
I specialize in individual and team training for both competitive and recreational play. I believe in coaching the whole individual and using positive reinforcement to encourage and sustain change in both the physical and mental game. I assess a player’s personal strengths and create a customized training regimen to teach my tennis students to assert their individual assets and to also recognize their opponent’s weaknesses. I look forward to meeting new tennis students and to helping them develop and instil their competitive tennis enthusiasm.
I am available to give tennis lessons locally in San Clemente, Dana Point, Laguna Niguel, San Juan Capistrano, Capistrano Beach, Talega and I will travel up to 10 miles to a local tennis court that is near you.
Please feel free to contact me, I will contact you back within 24 hours to introduce myself, answer any questions and if you are interested, set-up your first tennis lesson or hitting session at a time and place that is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you and I look forward to the opportunity to be your San Clemente tennis coach. I hope to see you on the court!
