Pedro is a wonderful person and an amazing tennis coach. His ability to hone in on what you need to improve your stroke or serve is incredible. He focuses on small changes that made a big difference in my forehand and serve. He notices everything from your grip to your timing in contact with the ball and your foot placement. He takes the time to evaluate your strokes and movement and makes insightful comments, some of which may be subtle and others are outright changes. HIs recommendations are purposeful. His patience is unparalleled and his warm smile is second to none. Sebastian has been my coach for two years, and his technique training has definitely improved my game.
As someone who hadn’t played tennis in over 20 years, but looking to make the most of my club membership and get reintroduced to the game, I signed up for lessons with Sebastian Marot, who is one of our club tennis pros. Sebastian is an excellent instructor – with a style that focuses on a repeatable set of core techniques and strategies that make it easy for a beginner to start playing tennis immediately. More importantly, his style and demeanour make the process fun and non-stressful, which encouraged me to keep at it, even on days when I wasn’t at my best. I’m happy to say that after three years, I’m enjoying tennis more than I ever have. I am happy to offer my endorsement for his abilities as a tennis instructor, and look forward to taking my game further into the future through working with him.
kids and I have taken lessons with Sebastian for two years. He is great at identifying how to make our shots better, explaining it and making sure we understand. The best part of a lesson with Sebastian the wonderful energy he always brings. My lessons with him improved my shots and game but were also so much fun that I didn’t realize how much of a workout I was getting. You feel great about yourself and what you can do after a lesson with him. Even my shy daughter who didn’t want to play tennis, came off the court after her first lesson all smiles and wanting to do another.
coached my summer club tennis team and I also took several private and semi-private classes with him. I was constantly impressed with his energy and positive attitude. Sebastian has a great ability to pinpoint areas that need improvement and provide specific details that you can work on easily. He has such a great personality, building players’ confidence and puts everyone at ease with his friendly manner – from the most competitive players to the very beginners. His enthusiasm for the game makes even the toughest clinics enjoyable. Sebastian is also great with young tennis players, being tough to get the best out of them, and enthusiastically celebrating their improvements, making them eager to do their best. He quickly became my 14-year old daughter’s favourite coach.
“I had been away from tennis for many years when my wife signed me up for a men’s clinic with Sebastian. I fell back in love with the game, largely because of the instruction Sebastian gave and the way he inspired our clinic of guys to work hard, perform the technique and have a lot of fun. Several years later we finished our last men’s clinic with Seb at the Roxbury Tennis Club, he was so happy to see the progression we’d made over the past few years … as were we, but also very sad to be losing such a great instructor and friend. Good luck Sebastian, hope to have you back one day! Scott Campbell, Riverside Connecticut”.
