Hi, I’m Joel, a tennis teacher and coach from Singapore. I started tennis at the age of 23. I know that’s considered late for an athlete. Fortunately, my volleyball background allowed me to pick up tennis really fast.

After one year of playing, I started to sign up for competitions. Of course, the results were not fantastic, due to my lack of experience. I made many stupid mistakes, threw away many cheap points, and lost many matches.

But that did not stop me from competing. I practiced more, read numerous tennis books, studied tons of tennis matches, and listened to interviews with coaches.

Results started to come; I was able to reach the quarterfinals of some local tournaments. I even reached the finals of one particular event, but lost 3-9 to my opponent. It was, nevertheless, a great achievement for me at that time. As I played more and more matches, my winning rate got higher. Most people that I played with said that I had a crazy topspin forehand and a nasty lefty serve.

(I’m a lefty by the way.) I love it!

Martina Navratilova said, in one of her speeches, that she enjoyed helping people and felt the responsibility to pass on the knowledge after she retired. I feel the same way too. I don’t just want to play tennis, I want to help people to play tennis at the level that they desire.

So here I am, developing tennis courses to help tennis players like you. I want to share my knowledge with you so that you can enjoy the game of tennis.

If you have any challenge in tennis, feel free to reach out to me. I want you to become a smarter and better tennis player.
