Client Reviews of Matt Seideman

I wanted to better my game for league tennis at Stoneridge. Since I have used Matt for instruction I have been able to break down my swing and  correct my errors, better my volley, learn strategies, develop a new serve, and win nearly every match the last 2 seasons.......I'd say that's pretty good!!!!
I'd definitely rate Matt a 5 out 5. Thanks Matt - Chris S

Matt is a genuine good person and very good tennis pro. While working in the hot sun at Stone Ridge, Matt took the time to come talk to us and even bring us some cold drinks (others just ignored us!). I would strongly recommend Matt as a tennis pro. Ron - Ron L

Matt has taught me so much over the years. His concepts and drills are always with me. Patience and creativity are his forte! - Lynn K
