Director of Youth Tennis, Indiana - USA

“Cosmin's “10 Lesson Plans” program is extremely helpful to me. I teach tennis mainly to young children and beginning adults. I have found his videos to be a good resource to help me teach technique and feel confident that I am presenting good information to my clients. 
I have followed him and used his drills and games with my students for the past ten years. 
His programs help me keep my lessons fresh and enable me to have a variety of fun games and drills for my students. 
I would recommend his programs to anyone wanting to be a better player or who teaches tennis.”​

Steven Gershman

PTR and USTA Tennis Coach, Virginia - USA

“I have been a subscriber to WebTennis24 for around 2 years now. Being a PTR coach of 10 unders, along with instructing beginning adult players, I have been able to take advantage of the many quality lessons, drills, games and E-books that Cosmin has offered. I especially enjoyed his live My Daddy/ My Coach lessons with his children.

Cosmin has now taken those lessons to the next level by introducing a new program called 

10 Lessons for Teaching Beginning Tennis Players. In this series of video lessons, Cosmin goes through step by step racket technique and footwork that is important to acquaint beginning players with every basic stroke needed to help them develop. 

Just this past weekend I worked with a brother and sister who are new to our wonderful sport. I was able to use many of the techniques and teaching points that Cosmin uses in 10 Lessons for Teaching Beginning Tennis Players with these students. I could easily take the same technique and teaching points and work with any age beginner.

What is also great about 10 Lessons for Teaching Beginning Tennis Players is that I can always go back to the videos and use his instruction and methods to work with my students as they advance. I can also use the rest of the vast amount of information on his website to supplement lessons with my students.”

Cosmin Miholca

Certified Tennis Teaching Professional & Tennis Parent

In this series of videos, Cosmin, a certified tennis teaching professional, along with the help of his daughter Bianca in the role of student, cover a wide range of topics in a way that feels like you are right there on the court with them.

From the first time a player picks up a racquet, all the way to learning how to play an actual tennis match using technically sound strokes, this extensive program is an excellent resource for both coaches and tennis parents.
