Samy is an excellent coach. He puts in a lot of care an attention to make sure you get the details right. He's also very patient and is able to explain a certain concept or technique in several different ways to make sure that he gets the point across. I strongly recommend Samy.

I am totally a beginner in tennis. Sami is my first personal trainer. He is a very friendly guy and a highly professional trainer when we start the training. He could precisely spot my weakness. When I was not able to do exactly what he told me, he was always very patient and would show me again what the correct movement should be. I'd like to be trained by him before I finish my study in the UK. More...

I had my first lessons with Sami in April 2019, since then I've never stopped. Once or twice per week, early in morning, middays, afternoons or on weekends, Sami is always available, highly professional, and above all a great coach. I tried 4 different coaches before coming across Sami, and none of them was able to give me the right technique, confidence and ability to actually play tennis and not just throwing the ball on the other side. He is able to catch any mistake and he always has the right and simple exercise to correct the mistakes, to give you an habit, and to improve naturally. I strongly recommend him, and I suggest to come to the court, meet him, watch his guys playing, envy their level, and then the decision to pick Sami as your coach will come naturally. More...

Sami is a great coach. I'm a beginner and never played tennis before. He has been wonderful, patient, kind and he knows what he's doing. Thanks to him, I have totally fallen in love with tennis and will continue playing (hopefully) for the rest of my life!!! Definitely recommend! More...

Sami is coaching me now and I am really enjoying his classes. I am a beginner and i find learning the right technique quite challenging. Sami is great at explaining things and providing good guidance during my practices and is able to immediately articulate what I'm doing wrong amd what do i need to change to fix my movement and technique. I am definitely in a better position than i expected to be after having only 2 classes! More...

Great coach who puts a lot of attention to detail in order to improve the grip,technique, positioning, timing and footwork of each stroke. As a beginner this requires patience which Sami has in abundance. I would highly recommend Sami for all the above :) More...

I have been doing tennis lessons with Sami for about 2months. I would say he is a magician🙏🏼 When I started to play tennis I was a super beginner, and I am really bad at any sports. I am very stiff and I am really rubbish at sports in general. Sami is a very patient coach and he keeps putting so much effort to encourage my tennis passion even when I feel frustrated by myself playing tennis. Also I think it is because of his long experience teaching tennis, he has a really sensitive eye to catch what to revise/change wrong bits of my tennis. He effectively observes my formal/ technical mistakes, also he explains very easily/ understandably on how to fix my tennis.
He is very reliable and flexible for my schedule as well. I cant recommend Sami enough. I am very happy to have him as a coach and strongly recommend him. I have another lesson tomorrow and I’m so excited🤗

I have worked with Sami for 2 lessons now and going for my third on Monday. From the moment i stepped on court to the point where i left there was always huge difference and as each lessons passed by I felt more comfortable and natural with rallying.

He helped me correct my grip, strokes and footwork and I explained exactly why the proper technique was crucial and fluid in movement. I immediately saw the difference after listening to his instructions.

I would definitely recommend Sami to anyone who wishes to pick up the game of tennis or any player seeking to improve their game. A very patient, warm and skillful person! He makes tennis fun and gives me the motivation to work hard and be sincere in the training.

Already after the first training it was clear that Sami is a professional tennis coach. I'm fully contented with his working technique. I'm a beginner in tennis and Sami perfectly observes my technical mistakes and explains very clearly how to fix them. Another great thing that Sami is flexible in finding the best time for me to have trainings.
I'm glad to have him as a coach and really recommend him!

I hadn’t played tennis in a while and Sami has been a brilliant coach in improving my skills and more importantly, my confidence!

Sami is extremely reliable and flexible with booking our lessons, even bringing me a racket to use when I was without and willing to travel to sites that suit my schedule.

Sami breaks the hour up with different exercises focusing on all aspects of tennis so I’m never bored and feel I’m improving week on week, building me up to play competitive tennis.

If you want to make progress and have an hour with a dedicated and friendly coach, I couldn’t recommend Sami enough.

I had played in the past but with a pretty inaccurate technique and Sami managed to spot and correct many of the mistakes I was doing, in a very engaging way. Using the same amount of effort, I'm now hitting with more power and with a better accuracy. I always left the court with a sense of achievement, motivated to come back and apply what I learned.

After taking tennis lessons from a highly qualified teacher for a year, I was sceptical about choosing another teacher after I moved to London. But I was pleased to learn that Sami was, and still is, very professional and knowledgeable: his teaching style focuses on making sure that every element is performed using the correct technique, but he is also happy to deviate from his schedule and teach you anything that you want to learn on the day.
Furthermore, he provides a good balance between positive and constructive feedback, which ultimately creates a great and productive training environment.

I have never played tennis before coming and taking one-to-one tennis lessons with Sami. He explains very good and detailed. Every time wehn I make something wrong, he asks me to think what was it abiut that I couldn’t beat the ball, and after he illustrates my incorrect position or movement. And corrects it. I really enjoy the lessons with him, cause as a teacher he posseses patience, kindness and positivity. More...

He is my first tennis teacher, however, i can confidently feel that he is and will be the best teacher ever!!! He is very professional and knows how to make beginners to understand and improve their movements. In other words, he perfectly know tennis in general but also individual players, as welll.
Also, he always encourages me so that I can enjoy time in the court with confidence!

Sami was recommended to me by a friend as I wanted to redevelop my tennis skills. I’m very glad to get in touch with Sami. He is a great teacher and he was able to improve already my tennis during the few lessons we had so far. The lessons with him are great fun and I’m enjoying the time on the court. I would definitely recommend him to everyone who is looking for a professional but fun teacher. More...

I came across Sami by randomly looking at Bark.com and I have to say, I was very lucky! I played a little when I was in high school but I've basically had to learn everything from scratch and Sami has been very useful for that. What I like most of working with him is that he can really tap on his decades-long coaching experience to tackle any issue / questions one may have. Furthermore, he's just a nice guy to practice with which makes each class, even the most frustrating, rather enjoyable. I have already recommended him to 2 close friends so would totally do that with strangers as well! More...

I was a tennis player who gave up some years ago. I needed someone to help me to be back on the court and Sami did it. He has great skills to coach from beginners to advanced levels.
I’ve also suggested him to some friends and seeing in them lots of improvements in a very short time period.

I have been training with Sami for 5 months and I wouldn't carry on with him if I wasn't as happy as I am with his service.
As a couch,he spots all my mistakes and helps me to correct them using different cues and exercises to get things right.
As a person, he is super nice, always in a good mood,very patient and smiley and is never late.
You won't feel dissapointed!

We've been training with Sami for little more than month. He is a great coach, direct but always encouraging. His teaching style is helpfully based on real game situations, as opposed to merely throwing lots of balls at you from the basket. This means you improve at the same time your technique and game strategy, and it also contributes to making training sessions great fun.

I trained with Sami multiple times now and really like his style of coaching. It’s very detailed which gives me a lot of confidence that I’m learning to master the technique. He also kindly connected me with another one of his students so that we can play outside of lessons. I’d definitely recommend him as a coach. More...

I am always wary of giving anybody a five star review as it can look fake. But my teenager daughter and I have had just had our first coaching session with Sami and I can honestly say its made tennis fun again. Our two hour lesson flew by and Sami is the most dynamic coach I have come across. More...

As a beginner, I only had two lessons with Sami and I would say I’ve advanced more than I ever advanced in the several lessons that I had with my previous coach.

Sami has a really great eye for detail and can quickly pick up on areas to be worked on. I really love his teaching style. Sami has a fantastic way of visually making me understand the sport and I see real improvements each time I apply myself.

He has an inspiring mindset, which is centred around positivity and you can really see that he thoroughly enjoys teaching tennis.

I would highly recommend Sami to anyone as a tennis coach!

I was previously a competitive player, but am nowadays struggling with footwork and timing. Sami conducted a lot of drills to help me find my timing. He focused on my backhand, which is nowadays the stroke that I struggle with the most. He provided detailed explanations on technique and footwork. He calibrated the session to fit my current levels - harder hitting on the forehand and slower shots on the backhand. Really enjoyed my session with him and learnt a lot! More...

I really enjoyed my lesson with Sami. He is very insightful and detailed oriented and you can tell he enjoys tennis and teaching. Particularly as a beginner I enjoyed that he actually plays with you while teaching, which also meant I did not have to pick up balls half the session, but spent the time learning. Definitely recommend him. More...

I did a lesson with Sami and got hooked right away. I asked him to organise a package of 10 lessons for me. Sami came to my home court and we did a very intense hour. While hitting balls he gave me also great tips. He asked me what my goals are and we made a plan for me to arrive to the spring tournaments in shape. I highly advice him to any player that want to improve while spending time with a kind person. More...
