Kieran is a phenomenal tennis coach who not only understands the game, technique, and strategy to make you a better tennis player, but also applies the lessons learned on the court to the bigger picture of life, making you a better person. Kieran was my primary tennis coach for many years, who gave me the skills to play competitive junior tournaments and eventually varsity college tennis at the nationally top ranked D3 MIT. I recommend Kieran as a coach to anyone looking to improve their game, play for fun or competitively, or wants to get started with tennis.

about the coach

Hi, I'm Coach Kieran. I've been married to my wife, Allie, for five years, and we have two children. We are followers of Jesus Christ and we attend Grace Bible Fellowship.


I have twenty years of teaching experience working with all levels, from beginners to top 10 nationally ranked athletes. 

As a coach, I'm always looking for ways to improve skills in teaching, but also my own skills. If I continue to improve, it helps me teach what I discover. 

I carefully study pickleball and tennis learning concepts in order to offer the best service possible.

It has been a pleasure to take lessons from Kieran, and he is a wonderful instructor who works well with all ages and skill levels. I have struggled with my backhand for years, and after just a few lessons my backhand has noticeably improved.

I highly recommend Kieran because he has the knowledge and expertise to take your game to the next level.

I am currently taking lessons from Kieran.  He is friendly and very reliable.  He has a gentle, caring approach.   I am of a competitive mindset, and I appreciate his ability to push me to change some weaknesses to build a stronger foundation.  We have worked on each of my strokes, to help me use my body mechanics in a correct way as to have ease in my strokes and not forced.  I am so confident in Kieran’s ability that I have signed up my grandchildren for the summer session.  I’m excited to see them play tennis.  I totally recommend Kieran.... he is an asset to our community.

My two sons really enjoyed their first tennis lessons. The class sizes were small, which allowed them to benefit from individual instruction from Coach Kieran. Coach started with the fundamental skills of the game, teaching good ball control, hand-eye coordination, and exercises to practice at home. They learned how the game works and scoring, and I saw improvement in each of my boys. I feel the lessons were a great value, and gave them a really good start in the game!
