My son, Paul, was very interested to play tennis since he was 4. The opportunity that Ravi gave him as his coach is a big plus for his dreams to come true. There was never a time that Paul got bored during his tennis lessons with Ravi but he always goes home enthusiastic, excited and encouraged! Ravi is very professional and he really means business when he trains his students. I would highly recommend Ravi to my friends. He is very approachable and a person with a good heart.

"I have been away from tennis for several years and have recently returned to the game as Coach Ravi was recommended to me from a friend who has taken lessons in the past with him."

I have been taking lessons with him for 2 years and always looking forward to his lessons and challenges.
He educates his clients on proper technique and builds a strong foundation for which to build on.  He teaches in a very clear concise way to help his students improve and build their confidence while making the lesson time enjoyable.  His knowledge and passion for the game is obvious and he cares about each student. 

Ravi has helped given me the excitement back about playing tennis and the confidence to play and be the best I can be every time.   

Thank you Ravi for all your time, patience and dedication in helping me improve my game and feeling more confident in myself. - Michelle B.

"Sarah was coached by Ravi in weekly private lessons. Ravi helped Sarah to improve a lot not only to her tennis techniques but also to her mind to get into high performance tennis.

With Ravi's professional coaching, Sarah won the championship of 2013 Ontario U9 Central-West District, and Sarah is selected by Ontario Tennis Association as one of the ten best U10 female players into 2013/2014 U10 Provincial Training Center Program. But the most important thing of all is, Sarah loves the experience in Ravi's coaching sessions, and she will enjoy the tennis in her whole life! I highly recommend Ravi for his professional and excellence in the coaching." - Kevin L.

"​​Ravi has to be the best coach I’ve had by far. Lots of coaches will feed you balls but Ravi truly goes the extra mile by bringing in different equipment to help improve your game." 

​Between using medicine balls to increase racquet speed and cones to improve accuracy, you’ll surely be exposed to all sorts of methods and in that way you’ll be able to find the one that best suits you. At the start of the summer I would simply hit the ball without thinking but through working with Ravi, I have learned the difference between topspin, flat, slice, poach volley, half volley, lob, drop shot as well as the best time to use each of them. Ravi has always gotten me to push myself both mentally and physically to take chances that I would have never considered to take before. I had always enjoyed rallying more than playing matches due to my serve. But through Ravi’s coaching, I learned how to hit both a flat serve as well as a slice serve and I had plenty of practice using them both in game play during the Round Robins. That summer I competed in my first university level tournament and I won 2 of 3 matches. My experience has taught me to keep trying even when faced with a score of 40-love and to go for the harder shots even if you might fail because if you never try, you’ll never get better at them. When a crazy shot goes in, it’s never luck. As a coach, he has built my confidence to take risks both on and off the court and that’s truly priceless. - Kristina - Western University

"I would highly recommend Ravi to teach anyone who might be interested in taking lessons with him."

My name is Katherine and Ravi has been my tennis coach for almost eight years.
When I first started I could barely hit the ball but Ravi was very uplifting and convinced me to continue and now I am able to do everything that I never thought would be possible. - Katherine
