Perfect Practice by Pros


"Amateurs practice until they get it right.
Pros practice until they can't get it wrong."

Tennis is their livelihood. You witness the skills and trade secrets of their craft. Each player has invested years of their life in mastering their best shots.

Learn the signature shot that each teacher will be best remembered.
If pros could only share one tip with the World, what would that be?



Bruce Lee's method of "fighting without fighting."

Yes - Court time is important. Matches are Important. Practice is Important.
After learning the proper Technique. There is a time and place for mass repetition.

First, the form must be correct.
Then, Perfect practice makes perfect.
Otherwise, bad technique makes you sloppy.

Why not learn from the grand slam champions or a World #1?
They are paid and trained to win at the top levels. Experience counts.

Mirroring proper actions will train the mind.
Avoid risk injury from improper swings or overuse

Even popular YouTube tennis coaches preach these concepts:

  1. Visualization - Imagery training is vital in tennis
  2. Learning by Osmosis - replay only the best examples
  3. Create Mental Snapshots - freeze action at critical points

Willy Wonka and the Golden Ticket - VIP Passes

On Court with TopCourt (filming behind-the-scenes, with a look at taping for Miami and Indian Wells)

In March and October, I took the invite and attended a behind-the-scenes look at the magic that goes into making these high-quality production videos. They offer pickleball VIP events too!

The interviews are the most original and authentic looks at the players. It gives them their true voice to express memories and moments. Shared lunch with Alexander Zverev and Brandon Nakashima between morning and afternoon takes.

You realize these young men are not paid as actors. They are genuine human beings who have a passion for the game. They often surprise you with a clever thought or joke they want to share.
Hearing how they think about tennis will transform and inspire how you play your game.


Better value for your tennis education

  • Train the mind before working on the body.
  • Full access to 56 tennis professionals at $180/year or ~50 cents per day.
  • Hours of content with each player and coach.
  • Before expensive lessons and court fees, learn the basics!
  • Pickleball lessons included, get two for one.

TopCourt is still $15 per month - Typical private tennis lessons cost around $50-85 per hour in the USA. That's very good value, considering you get a year's worth of unlimited access anytime and anywhere. 5% cheaper (if you factor inflation), plus tons more pros with twice the sports than in 2020.

A perfect complement to live coach-led instruction

Yes, private lessons are essential.

If your kid learns faster today with video and YouTube, this is a healthy option that isn't 24x7 TikTok. 

Youtube highlight reels are just eye candy - you need real tennis education.
Taught by pros, demonstrated by people who do it for a living. Not a YouTube celeb.

Inspiring stories are shared by teenagers (Iga Swiatek and Leylah Fernandez).
Both reached their first grand slam a few months after filming. A few genuine and kind words could be all it takes to inspire a young child to work hard at tennis. Hearing someone accomplish such an incredible feat can spark priceless motivation for what is possible.

You get to learn something new from so many teachers. If you are a game fan or student of the sport, it is designed with you in mind. Anyone on YouTube can call themselves a tennis coach these days. How many ATP or WTA championship titles has your coach won?

The annual subscription is a gift of education. A much better souvenir for lasting memories than anything found at the tennis gift shop.

Close-Ups Camera Angles

The unique first-person experience makes TopCourt so different and special. It is unlike any TV camera angle. You feel like you're so close on the court that you might get hit by the shots.

 I saw several times when the cameramen did get hit during one of their film operations for special behind-the-scenes peeks in March (Miami) and October (Indian Wells).

The players swing full speed at the rovers and multiple body cameras that are live filming footage on the actual playing surface. The realistic perspectives are unmatched.

Overhead drone footage, courtside camera angles, and personalized commentary from the pro speaking directly to you at home. You feel as if you're the only student taking the private lesson.

3 reasons why fans go attend pro sports events

When attending Tennis Majors like the US Open, I value these 3 experiences above all else:

1) Matches - Watching the Big 5th set Grand Slam match live on the center court.
2) Practices - Seeing the Tennis Pros prepare with their team from the courtside.
3) Emotions - Real human joy. Sharing the thrill of victory with thousands.

Spector sports have been fundamentally changed. We missed all those special moments of exhibition genius and unscripted, off-camera candid insights outside the stadium.

TopCourt allows touring pros to share their favorite tennis drills and retell treasured moments.

TopCourt offers the feeling of a personal conversation.


Pro players are gathered together, then filmed while being mic'd up for one reason - to show you their inner game and key life experiences that shaped them into who they are today. Viewers are offered the perspective of a "fly on the wall," - allowing home viewers to witness those rare moments.

Each tennis player/coach presents you with unique skills and training regimens. The campus of TopCourt is very diverse and cross-generational.

The edits are well done with many enhanced cues (such as the mini-court icon at the bottom revealing where the player and each ball bounce are placed).

You get the benefit of all their combined years of experience on tour, which distills differently with each pro's own style and humor in their teaching role. Front and center for every moment.

Free Pickleball Lessons are now included.

For 2023, it now includes free lessons for pickleball too. Featuring teachers like World #1 Ben Johns and #3 Jessie Irvine. Think of this as the new 2-for-1 racket sports library (more tennis and pickleball videos are coming).

So you can share with family members who want to try Pickle, or can't play active singles - like elderly parents. It's ok; we won't tell anyone if you watch along too!

Seriously, Pickleball

For my tennis students transitioning or recovering from tennis, using pickleball as a fun "mini-tennis" alternative to play with kids or seniors is more fun than I originally expected. I've tried indoors and outdoors with earplugs and without (just kidding!).

As a USPTA coach, I still play 4x tennis a week. But now, I save pickle for the "social" days - or whenever I host a wide mix of ages and skills. Just stay competitive about it so that everyone can enjoy the fun. Try it with food or drinks while relaxed with no pressure to ace someone!

TopCourt - the Netflix of Tennis

As a member using TopCourt for a few months now, I'm pretty sure you will enjoy it too as a tennis fan. It is both instructional, entertaining, and makes for a great documentary for the sport of tennis.

Recently we watched our retired heroes the Bryan Brothers and Lindsay Davenport sharing their digital memoirs and American tennis memories over the years - from the Olympics to the Grand Slams.

Each month, they reward the top customer referral with a bonus. So as a thank you for all the support, I'm just spreading the love and reinvesting it back to our fans with my own Amazon e-Gift cards. The goal is to grow and improve this platform and become the on-demand Netflix of Tennis.


In 2020, we wanted to bring the US Open drills, stories, and pros to you.

Motto: Stay home, be safe, and enjoy TopCourt.

Price: $180 / year for the Basic Membership.

Quick comparison, I charge $65/hr as a tennis teacher. Simply learning and practicing how to serve alone can take longer than 3 hours. The vast library of pros is outstanding. Watch as little or as much as you want. Watch it when you want, where you want. Pause, play, repeat.
