Ive enjoyed my week session from both a social a good way to meet other tennis playersand physical learn improve strokes point of view. The environment is a nonthreatening one in which each person, of different levels, can receive the instruction they desire. Two things I especially appreciated were, first, Vals comments as I was hitting to let me know what I was doing incorrectly and how to rectify the problem. Secondly, I liked the variety of drills in which we could practice our shots. I find that method much more helpful than playing games there is plenty of time for that outside of lessons/clinics. Thank you for the feedback you have given me during the clinics this session.
What you can expectand….hear from PLAYERSthat have benefited from the Tennis Made Simple way.
On the following Im going to show in detail why my Tennis Made Simple program will allow the whole mily toHAVE FUN…IMPROVE FAST…and STAY HEALTHY.
I have started to play tennis after an absence of several decades and feel very lucky to have found Tennis Made Simple. I felt quite clumsy during the first few lessons, but as the first session comes to a close, I feel as if I have made some real progress. Its a great stress reliever and I look forward to every lesson. Val is a pro who clearly loves sharing tennis with his students. He uses a variety of teaching/coaching s that keeps the class moving all the time! He has made me believe I can improve my skills with just the right balance of correction, humor and encouragement. Thank you,Val!

Southbury, CtI have been taught by Val for the past year. I was a college tennis player whose game was definitely rusty. I had not played with any regularity and wanted to get my game back to a solid level. Val encouraged me to add topspin to my forehand helping me to stay competitive with higher level players. I was very pleased because over the summer I made it to the finals in the LW ladies singles and doubles. Hopefully, I will continue to improve in terms of my tennis results with more practice.
Southbury, CtI never thought at this age that I would be able to learn the sport of tennis and enjoy it. Val has been a consistent encouraging force, always positive but able to comment on the areas that need work. He is able to do this in a manner that makes anyone feels at ease while learning.The clinics vary in attendance and whether it is or week, Val keeps the drills running smoothly and everyone is challenged, never bored.
Woodbury, CtIve truly enjoyed playing tennis these past months. I feel that in such a short time I have learned so much and continue to get a good workout whenever I play. I like getting the instant feedback when a shot I make is not hit properly. You have a good eye Val for seeing what the problem is; whether the ball was hit too hard, soft, high,low, on the sweet spot or not. Its very helpful to hear right away what needs to be changed so that I can work on it right then. Also, even though the groups talents are all different, you do a great job of keeping everyone on the ball. Ive really enjoyed playing tennis and hope this aging body will serve me well!

Woodbury, CtMy son, Joseph, had a wonderful experience taking tennis lessons with Val Stoiana. He was taught to play tennis in a fun way and developed a love of the game. We have seen steady improvement in Josephs tennis game with each session. We would recommend Tennis Made Simple to any parent looking for a tennis instructor for their child.
indoor sessions NovMarch are weeks long and meets weekly at Newtown Youth Academy or Rumsey Hall School Washington Ct.
For me inidually, I really appreicate knowing if I was hitting the way I was supposed to. Verbal feedback during drills is important. Keep the variety of drills. Making them as gamelike as possible without the stand around time of a game situation.
Well, I think we play ster and harder. And you change things so much Im never sure what you are going to do next. So that makes me stay more alert and keeps me on my toes. and as always you make it fun.
You make learning the game of tennis fun and keep it interesting by focusing each class on something specific and different from the prior week to be sure everyone can learn all aspects of the game.

Tennis made simple has been a fun and enriching experience for me and my mily. The instruction is insightful and positive and the drills are fun and quite a work out.The program is very good at teaching how to pay a point moving forward.
Val not only teaches tennis fundamentals but he includes strategy and ways to think about playing the game that help improve player performance at any level. I also appreciate that Val takes a cardio approach to his lessons, because when Im through with a session I know that I had a greatwork out in addition to trying to master the game of tennis.
I would prectice, study and work on my game with Val Stoiana any day of the week. I went to Tennis Central for about months. Then on Apr th I started with Val and my game changed very quickly. I developed top spin, back spin and just overall game and court logic and shot technique. Val has practically been a mentor for me. if I can I am going to make room in my budget for Val in Apr. …

I learned the reasoning behind how you hit your shots. The advantages and disadvantages of specific shots and how to execute the shots properly. All said it doesnt mean I can do them but now I have something to think about and try to do it right. You made learning fun and informative. I think we all had a good time while we hopefully were learning. Some of it did sink in.
