Thanks for 10 great years of tennis. Without your coaching I highly doubt I would have progressed the way I did or stayed with it as long as I have. I’m really, really looking forward to watching [my son] Quentin hone his coordination, skills and (fingers crossed) love for the game the way I did.

- Jesse Cross, Aliso Viejo

Thank you for your positive and very instructive approach in helping Cara improve her game, and for all the other aspects that respect for the sport of tennis brings to life in general.”

- Peter Eccleston, Aliso Viejo

“Chris mentioned to us how delighted he was to see you last week [when Tesoro HS played] at El Toro during their match. I wanted to share his college essay with you, you’ll see why. Thank you for the impact you had on Chris, he has fond memories of you and Coach Craig.”

- Pearl Maldonado (Vasquez), Rancho Santa Margarita

“Do you find yourself saying over and over to your students, “That was a great lesson”? I have heard you say that at least a hundred times! What does that tell you…that you recruited the best students in the OC? No, it is a reflection of not only your giftedness as an athlete, but it is also a reflection of what a talented tennis teacher you are! You are so appreciated by so many of us! I am lucky to be one of them!”

- Barbara Marks, Coto de Caza

Greg: Just a quick heads up. We (especially Jami) wanted you to know that she made the varsity team [as a freshman at Aliso Niguel High School]. Jami is of course very excited and looking forward to the season. Thanks again for all your help and expert instruction which was instrumental in her success!

- Jeff Pinter, Aliso Viejo

“In my very first lesson with you, you really stood out to me as an incredible teacher. I have taken a lot of
lessons when I was much younger at private clubs on the east coast, and even in just one lesson I knew
you were one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. Thank you!”

- Andrea Quimby, Corona del Mar

“I’m sending you this e-mail to let you know that Jake made the [Trabuco Hills] High School Varsity Tennis Team. I want to thank you for the training that you gave him. I believe that without it, he may not have even made the JV team. I think that you provided him a solid foundation to work with. As his coach, I wanted to share this ‘good news’ with you.”

- Steve Portanova, Rancho Santa Margarita

“Thanks again for all your wonderful teaching. We will always have your voice in our heads when we’re playing tennis, saying “Turn!” and so many more of the great things you impressed upon us. As they say here in SoCal, “Dude, you’re awesome!!”

- Linda, Vinell, Melissa, and Walter McWilliams, Aliso Viejo

“Louis took a course with you (and your assistant, John) last summer, and recently he made the Aliso Niguel High School Junior Varsity tennis squad. Thanks for the support you gave to Louis to achieve his goal!

- Steve Parker, Aliso Viejo

“Greg, we feel truly blessed to have found you to coach Jennifer. You really are making a great impact on her life now, and she will benefit from your teachings for the rest of her life.”

- Mike Niedringhaus, Aliso Viejo

“Jeff and I want to thank you ever so much for helping us with our tennis skills. We have learned so much through your patient and detailed teaching approach. Greg, you really have given us the gift of a new found enthusiasm for a sport that we can learn and play together as a couple.”

- Tamme Eroh and Jeff Smith, Aliso Viejo
