I am a Seasoned Tennis Coach that exclusively provides Tennis Lessons in the BEAUTIFUL cities of Pasadena and Arcadia. In a nutshell, Tennis Lessons are a great way to learn a NEW life-skill, get FIT while having FUN in the sun !
You will learn accurate tennis technique with tips and TRICKS in your tennis classes with your tennis coach, which will help you play sooner rather than later with your bosom tennis friends, who might've been taking tennis lessons for years or been playing at local tennis courts for maybe all their lives.
My name is Dr. Sunny. I love Tennis, & everything associated with the game - I'm deeply passionate about it. What first attracted me to tennis as a kid was, it seemed like a very refined & graceful sport, people playing it as it is meant to be played, looked nothing short of artists to me. I took it up with my parents backing, underwent intense coaching, played circuits as a kid and college tennis, was eager to go far in it, but my love of academics took over & I decided to become a Doctor. I love my career and right now I'm involved with Biotech Startups.
I happened to have a little disposable time on my hands and continuing coaching again as a way of spreading my passion for the game. I've had the good fortune by now of having had a regular stream of students of all ages to pass on my love for the game, having coached for about 15 years now in LA.
I,being younger than your typical tennis instructor,can play hard with you while teaching you, instead of just shouting from the sidelines or feeding you balls like a 'human ball machine'. Of course, being more educated than him, my lessons will be bang on the money in terms of authentic technique, because I'm an avid student of the game of tennis, besides the field of medicine.I bring the same thoroughness of attention to detail to accurate tennis technique, as I do to studying a tome of medicine.
Adopting a non cookie- cutter, personalized, white-glove tailored private tennis instruction model coupled with cardio fitness baked into the paradigm- in an MO which is non-micromanagerial, holistic, emotionally engaging but also intellectually stimulating via learning a brand new motor skill-set for beginners. It also proves to be a great way for intermediates and advanceds to get a terrific workout while honing their muscle memory- away from the 'hamster on a wheel' routine of a treadmill, and for folks to get out and have some fun under the sun in a predominantly work from home milieu currently.
What sets me apart?
I’m a young, fit, athletic current LA Men’s Tournament player (have won USTA Men's 5.0 Singles Championships and participated in Men's Open Tournaments). I'm not simply a ‘human ball- machine ‘ vis-a-vis a majority of LA coaches who’re older and simply teaching pros at this point in their life since they’ve hung up their ‘playing’ boots. I ensure I play hard with each and every one of my clients, including competitive matches – as a learning tool.
Most coaches being older, teach the way they learnt which is now outdated unfortunately the way tennis has evolved, and additionally are ill-equipped to compete. Furthermore, I go above and beyond the call of duty with personalized email feedback, and tailor sessions accordingly. I incorporate plenty of tennis training tools and teaching aids such as agility ladders, medicine balls, target cones, ball machines, music etc. not just ball baskets and hoppers.
Has it been a smooth road?
It has not been always easy. For example, carving out time from my startup is always an ongoing challenge. Reschedules and cancellations on clients ends can be a bug-bear, as also rains in a city like LA with almost no indoor facilities. I persist with it because it’s a labor of love for me-it gives me immense satisfaction to teach my enduring passion, and extremely gratifying to see a grin on a student’s face when they finally ‘get’ that down-the-line forehand they’d been angling for, over weeks/months. Teaching is super emotionally rewarding for me. Besides, it keeps me super-fit as well! Otherwise I’d be on the couch after work- growing a beer-belly 😉
I had no plans of taking tennis lessons until I happened to meet Sunny off the court. His passion for tennis clearly stood out as his whole being lit up when talking about his long and successful career as a tennis pro.
Sunny has endless energy and a contagiously upbeat personality. Needing to make some positive changes in my own life, I decided to try out tennis as an adult beginner.

Sunny is a experienced coach with very positive attitude. A couple of classes in and I already feel more comfortable and improved as a beginner level player.
Definitely looking forward to continuing the journey and recommend to those who haven't tried.

I went to Sunny with my friend we both took lessons just to get back into shape, and it was exactly what I was looking for. Sunny was great in helping me develop a much wider outlook on the game, at the same time gave me a great workout. The result left me not only a better player, but feeling great too. I would recommend these lessons to anyone who is willing to put in their time with a great coach, you will not be disappointed with the end result. 5 stars!

Every once in a while when I want to shake things up in life, I sign up for some extra curricular activity. This time it's tennis!
Sunny is such a talented coach. You guys, he is super well educated and teaches tennis because he loves it. He figures out how I can improve and uses hilarious analogies and word play to help me remember what to do.
