“Great tennis clinics on Marco!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

A group of four of us came to Marco for a combination tennis/fun trip. We called ahead and booked a clinic with Susan for the first day we were there. It was great doubles strategy and lots of fun. So much so that we booked a second clinic for the last day we were there!

She's really easy to work with and gives great advice/reasoning for why we should do what we should do in doubles tennis!

Highly recommend Susan for this and I bet her bike tours are equally as fabulous!

“Team Ohio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Team Ohio 5 Florida 2! What a wonderful couple of lessons we had with Susan!

She makes an hour of skills and drills go by so fast. She takes the time to assess your skill level and then comes up with a variety of drills that are so much fun.

Susan also has a wonderful personality. My wife and I highly recommend Susan to you!

“susan evans an excellent tennis pro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

when I was younger, I played on a 5.0 tennis team; consequently I have had a great amount of experience playing with the pros. She rates with the very best. This year, I played with her five times and each session was challenging and fun. If u have a weakness she will improve your technique and give u confidence. I will be back to play with her again.

“Perfect teacher for an experienced junior player”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is the second year that we've had an opportunity to work with Susan. My daughter plays competitive junior tennis and has been fortunate to work with several experienced tour professionals in "career." I would rate Susan among the best that she's worked with because she understands the right balance between making the time together instructional as well as fun (especially as we were technically on vacation). During this trip, Susan was able to weave in some key tips on mental preparation and court strategy along with assisting from a technical standpoint. During our stay, we had nearly 10 hours with her and each time my daughter came off the court looking for more. We look forward to seeing her again next year!

“Great Tennis Pro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Susan Evans is fantastic tennis coach. I am a 4.0-4.5 level player trying to improve my game. In two short hours Susan dissected my backhand, found the core flaw that has inhibited my progress for years, applied the perfect drills to make me comfortable with the change, and had me hitting great topspin backhands by the end of the second hour. Simply excellent!

Gee, thanks a million, Tom! So kind of you to write a review and I am so happy I was able to really help you! With the proper grip and swing now your backhand is world class and will be a real weapon in your already excellent tennis game! I hope to see you again on your next visit on Marco to see your improvement and have some more fun! Many thanks again, it was all my pleasure! Keep up the good work and keep enjoying the game!
