Harlan Hopchik Tennis Instructor
Harlan Hopchik, a USPTA-certified tennis instructor, is willing to work with just about anyone who has a racket in his or her hand: beginners through advanced players, juniors through adults. Throughout the year, he travels around the Dallas area conducting private, semi-private, and group lessons that are geared toward not only improving skills, but also making the game more enjoyable. During sessions, students can tap into Harlan's wisdom and focus on any aspect of their repertoire—from improving their stroke technique and developing their match play tactics to learning how to trash-talk a particularly arrogant tennis-ball machine.
