ABOUT ERIC:

Eric Davenport, a USPTR Certified Instructor, has been teaching tennis for nearly 30 years. He started teaching group lessons for the Portland Tennis Center and, by the age of 18, he coached the Junior Davis and Wightman Cup Teams.  He continued teaching tennis in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout college. He has now been teaching full time at Vermont Canyon for many years. 

His approach to teaching tennis is finding what works best for each individual person. He does this by analysis and talking one-on-one with his clients. He asks them individually to tell him what their goals are and assesses their strokes. To him the sign of a good teacher is one who enhances what you have, rather than change everything about your game. Drills and match play are incorporated into almost every individual or group lesson. Eric’s ultimate goal is to make sure every lesson is a fun, dynamic, creative and challenging experience.
