Randy believes that tennis is the greatest game ever invented. This respect for the game is a major element in his teaching and coaching philosophy. Randy has shown in his 40 years in the tennis business that he recognizes what his different students want and need from their lesson and he respects that. He does not try and force his style but adapts to the student to help them get the most enjoyment and benefit from each lesson experience.

Randy also knows that tennis is a game and games are meant to be fun! If the learning experience is fun then players will get better at the game. Improvement happens at a much faster rate when the environment is fun. Therefore, having fun is also another major element in his coaching philosophy.

Randy always says one of the best things about tennis is any player gets to hit a lot of balls and hitting balls is fun! Learning how to hit all the different shots, spins, and targets, means the player will have a toolbox full of tools to use when the situation calls for it. To have variety in shots and playing style is a characteristic of the players that Randy coaches.
