    One of the best clubs/instruction around. Been working with Dave for 35 plus years. Great to see his success both at the club and ATP level. Missing out if you’re not working with the Doctor! Dave Marshall knows his tennis. Great summer clinics coming up. Be sure to sign up!

  • Avatar PB

    Excellent fun! Great high energy clinics and full of game changing instruction. I have gone back year after year to play, learn and exercise in Dave Marshall’s Clinics. The staff was exceptional and the tennis was amazing. See you next year Dave!!

    My husband and I took our first tennis lessons with Dave. Over the years I would take long weekends with my girlfriends. Dave has always been great at crafting a weekend camp/clinic to accommodate all of our skill levels. We’ve spent alot of time at DMT and always had a tremendous amount of fun while receiving great instruction. No matter what your skill level, DMT has a clinic, private lesson or camp for you.

    My wife and I have known Dr Dave for more than 30 years. We’ve been going to DMT since the beginning. Our first tennis lessons were with Dave. Dave instilled in us both a love and respect for Tennis. We are better tennis players today because of DMT. Our first pickleball experience was through DMT. Whether Tennis or pickleball, first timer or experienced veteran, DMT has clinics, camps & one on one lessons just for you. We always have fun and leave better players.

    It has really good instruction from coaches there to get better and the weakness is that the coaches are often away sometimes with other events going on.

  • Avatar TF

    Dave and his team are the best! High-energy competitive drills, exceptional instruction, and lots of fun.

  • Avatar PM

    I was a college All-American. I bring my son here to train, even though I own a second home 20 miles south. Dave and his staff have helped my son to grow and mature his game. The buy in from a junior player working with a coach from the pro tour is second to none. When the tennis channel calls him one of the best in the business, the junior player steps up and listens. They had a set back with the fire in the clubhouse, but they have not missed a beat. I feel blessed to have someone work with my son who has Coached Mike and Bob Bryan, Edoardo Roger Vasselin and others.

    The best place to go to improve your tennis and pickleball game. A no frills place, where hitting the tennis and pickleball matter. Where you hit it, how you hit it. The staff have played and coached at the highest levels. Dave has won every level professional tournament from 250, 500, Masters, Slams to World Championships. Chris has played at all levels of the tour. Their pickleball pros they bring in are the cutting edge.

  • Avatar AP

    I have enjoyed Dave Marshall Tennis for over a decade. The professional attention with lessons, clinics, camps and events is excellent. Dave is an outstanding coach and teacher. His students improve under his direction. He has coached several professional tennis and pickleball players. I was a former college basketball player and coach. As a Coach who has coached in the final four of Division 1 Basketball, I can tell you this is the program to take your game to the next level. I now consult at the NBA level, and this is the place.

  • Avatar EJ

    The Dave Marshall Tennis and Pickleball club is owned and managed by Dave Marshall who is a world class coach famous for coaching the Brian brothers and many more tour champions. Dave himself runs the clinics and is available to give private lessons. The experience will give you a taste on how pros train and will definitely improve your game.

  • Avatar GC

    Dave Marshall Tennis is a wonderful facility to develop any player from the most novice, to training some of the top players in the state. All the coaches and instruction is top notch. With tennis clinics, camps, and private lessons there are many opportunities for any tennis player to develop and enhance their game. Each coach has great knowledge in the game and works to grow each player.

  • Avatar TM

    Fantastic year-round tennis and pickleball facility at the Rehoboth beaches. Owner Dave applies his personal touch to meet your individual tennis and pickleball needs. Morning tennis clinics and afternoon pickleball sessions are well structured to accommodate different members’ levels. I definitely would try and book Dave for a private session, especially if you enjoy sweating and pushing yourself hard each time out on the court. Dave and local staff make you feel welcome and part of the growing paddle community.

  • Avatar CS

    I have known Dave for almost 30 years. He is an outstanding coach and teacher as well as a good friend. His tennis knowledge is unsurpassed and he coaches on both the ATP and WTA tours. He has been my son’s coach since he could hold a racket and he is now starting as a freshman in both singles and doubles in the NESCAC, the top D3 conference in the country.

  • Avatar AC

    We love Dave Marshall’s Tennis Camp. We have been going to Dave’s facility since he opened up. Our 19 year old has participated there from the beginning and is now a college tennis player in the NESCAC. Dave has had a tremendous impact on him and we have valued his expertise and friendship for years. We can’t recommend his tennis program enough!

  • Avatar JB

    This was my first time visiting Dave Marshall’s. I came with my USTA team for a weekend camp. I learned more in a 3 day camp, than I have in the last year of clinics at my home club. All the drills and strategies were amazingly simple to understand. I’m excited to add everything I learned to my league matches. I would highly recommend doing a weekend camp with your team!!

  • Avatar AK

    Exceptional instruction for tennis strategy. Clinics are the best I’ve ever attended.

    Dave Marshall Tennis is exceptional! Can’t wait to return again next summer…my game has improved significantly! SB

    If you are into improving your tennis game no matter how high of a level, beginners to ATP/WTA Pro Tour, Dave Marshall is the Man!!! Making not just your game improve but your mind as well, Making sure your keep the Joy of playing tennis there as well pushing you to better overall tennis technique & strategy.

  • Avatar PG

    Dave Marshall tennis clinics and instruction are strategic and tactical. Doubles strategy taught by Dave is second to none (evidenced by his past and current success coaching pro players on the tour). This is not a “stroke of the day” clinic. Instead, the instruction takes a cerebral approach to how and why points are won and lost – and the results are almost instantaneous. While some tactics appear counterintuitive, they are proven winners and Dave often follows up with video on the court to show how they work, and they do – from 3.0 to 5.0. Doubles partners, USTA teams and scholastic teams are frequent participants however individuals will also benefit from re-thinking how they approach their competitors on the other side of the net. While Dave Marshall Tennis is not located in the midst of a resort, it is located in Lewes/Rehoboth Beach DE with hotels, ocean beaches, bay beaches, restaurants and clubs which are open year-round.

  • Avatar HO

    Dave Marshall is a haven for Tennis and Pickleball. He coached professional tennis players at the highest level. The Bryan Brothers, Edoardo Roger Vasselin, Olmos, Kanepi, Paire, Gonzalez, Mahut amazing list. In Pickleball he can be linked to Fudge, DeHeart and others. They had a set back with a fire in the clubhouse, but the Tennis and Pickleball are going strong.

  • Avatar ZJ

    I have been a member of Dave Marshall tennis and pickleball for the last 15+ years and it’s still exciting to participate in outstanding opportunities to develop tennis skills through private lessons from Dave or high energy clinics with strategy oriented drills for all levels of participants. One thing is for sure, you will have a lot of information to process through your brain. You will enjoy applying it in your matches and discover new joy in playing the game. If you need match arrangements Dave and his staff will do the best to accommodate you. Spring is here and finally we will be able to enjoy 3 outdoor clay courts and 1 hard court. Come and enjoy Dave Marshall tennis and pickleball. Life is too short !!!

  • Avatar FS

    I did the tennis and pickleball weekend. The tennis was great, we were able to learn from Dave who has won Wimbledon and the US Open- so that was a highlight. Then we did the clinic for pickleball with Megan Fudge and Ryler DeHeart well that was amazing. World class tennis and pickleball. Megan is 1 in APP, Ryler is ranked high as well. We came back another weekend and did the Jenna Hessert clinic and also worked with Dave when he was home from the Australian Open.

  • Avatar JB

    I was in town for thanksgiving on a last minute trip. Dave was able to get me involved in multiple days of group tennis clinics as well as a pickleball mens doubles tournament. The tennis clinics were a blast! Filled with fun games with strategies from pro players that Dave coaches! Dave and his staff went above and beyond to make my short trip a great experience!

  • Avatar ZW

    Played tennis here for years and now pickleball. Staff is amazing . Very helpful and in touch with the customers needs and wants.

  • Avatar MW

    I highly recommend Dave Marshall Tennis. I have taken multiple lessons which have improved my game. Staff is always delighted to help and make my stay fun.

  • Avatar DF

    Dave Marshal Tennis is located within minutes from beautiful Rehoboth Beach Delaware. The tennis facilities include both hard surface and clay courts, and air-conditioned indoor courts are a real plus! Pickle ball is offered as well and is extremely popular. In addition there is a beautiful pool and a well equipped fitness center at the facility. All of the facilities are well maintained. The professional staff is the main reason this is a great place to take lessons and play. I’ve taken lessons from Dave Marshal and three of his professional staff. The competence of the staff is one of the reasons that this will be my third return visit. The individualized instruction has helped me to improve my game throughout my stay in Rehoboth. The quality of the instruction is exceptional. When not playing, I watch with amazement the adult and junior clinics that are available. Participants work hard while having a great time. There is an authentic commitment to building tennis skills as well as character. The facilities are great but it’s the people who make this a special place with Dave Marshal setting the tone.

  • Avatar AO

    Dave Marshall is always accommodating to our groups last minute drop in. They are really good about catering and tailoring the lessons to our requests. They are great in helping us improve our doubles strategy. Besides my team my son (23) and his friends love going there. They love improving their gamesand having the pro tweak their technique. They enjoy the high level clinics and private lessons. They typically like the 2 hour clinic to meet others and then private lessons. After tennisbthey hit the beach and return to play some social pickleball. I highly recommend Dave Marshall Camp. They offer something for everyone.

  • Avatar AT

    I have been going to Dave Marshall tennis for 14 years. I participated all through college and afterwards. The staff is wonderful and super knowledgeable. Dave is also very present with all of his clinics and takes the time to help each individual.

  • Avatar AM

    Dave Marshall is one of the best in the business. His professionalism/instruction and knowledge of the game of tennis is by far like no other. I highly recommend visiting Dave and his staff for an experience like no other. From group clinics to cardio tennis to individual lessons, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from and recieve some of the best instruction in the business. You won’t regret this tennis club.

  • Avatar PG

    Dave Marshall runs his clinics not just on premise but on court. A high-energy clinic which largely focuses on doubles strategy from a Grand Slam-winning doubles coach that specifically focuses on how to win points, games and matches. These are the same drills Dave uses with his pros currently on tour. In many cases it involves re-wiring what your brain has been taught for decades, in order to produce success, rather than focusing on repetitious drill or stroke mechanics. Often a great mix of USTA team players, high level club players and top regional junior players combine to create a dynamic, competitive and fun experience where everyone leaves a more competitive and cerebral player – at any skill level. The only drawback is that summer in Lewes/Rehoboth Beach can be a busy place attributable to its popularity as a vacation destination.

  • Avatar PB

    Dave Marshall is an excellent coach and strategist. His facility and staff are world-class. Very friendly, high energy and exceptional clinics. My game has elevated since I have been working with Dave Marshall Tennis. I look forward to going back every year!

  • Avatar AH

    Dave Marshall Tennis in Lewes, DE is an incredible facility for all tennis levels. Located in the coastal DE area, this facility can accommodate visitors as well as year round tennis/pickle ball players.

    Dave Marshall Tennis helped me transform my game and improve tremendously! Dave is a special coach and knows how to get the very best out of the players he coaches. Dave is a winner and he helped me win many matches and tournaments.

  • Avatar TF

    Dave Marshall tennis club is outstanding. The staff is professional and energetic. I’ve played with many pro tennis instructors and Dave is the best with his guidance and recommendations for my game. I most recently played at the facility for a weekend USTA match and it couldn’t have been a better and more uplifting experience

  • Avatar ET

    Dave Marshall and his pros are world-class instructors. I have been playing at Dave Marshall tennis for a couple years now, and it has drastically changed my game. I have also organized women’s tennis trips to come play with Dave Marshall. When he’s not at his own tennis club, Dave is traveling with pros and coaching on tour. You can’t get better instruction than somebody who is currently a pro coach!

  • Avatar MJ

    Dave Marshall is the best tennis clinic orchestrator and tennis coach! The clinics are so much fun and full of energy. The staff and players are very congenial and welcoming. It’s a great environment for tennis lovers of all ages and abilities!

  • Avatar JB

    Dr. Dave Marshall truly is the best in the business, as recently referred to during the live commentary from the Miami Open. He is as many reviewers have written, a professional world class tennis coach , who has accolade after accolade who chooses to also bring his passion and incredible knowledge of tennis to any recreational player regardless of skill or age. His expertise is strategy and there is no better hour or day or days spent than being on a court next to him yourself or with a partner or team to truly learn how to improve your game and frankly, win. At heart Dave is a teacher and his style is unparalleled. I have been visiting Dave Marshall for years and it’s the first place I consider for any tennis lesson, clinic and especially camps for the USTA teams I captain. Additionally, Dave has added several indoor pickle ball courts to the Center and pickle ball is thriving there seven days a week ! Whether you are local to the Rehoboth Beach, DE area or willing to travel to the beautiful resort town from far away, if you are a tennis player or want to become one, do not miss the opportunity to spend time with Dave Marshall. It’s a bucket list experience that you can have again and again bc the cost is incredibly fair but more importantly once you go you will wish he was the coach or pro of your team or at your club and you just will want more. The Tennis Channel was on point when they said, Dave Marshall is one if the best in the business.

  • Avatar WE

    I have played tennis on vacations all around the country and Dave Marshall Tennis has hands down the best clinics I have ever seen. He is very interactive and whether you are a novice or a professional he makes you feel included while keeping the pace going! I highly recommend the clinics or even a private lesson. It will improve your game 10 fold by a matter of a few lessons and or interactive clinics. I give this outfit 5 stars!

  • Avatar PM

    I think you would be hard pressed to find another tennis pro who coaches with great success on the professional tennis tour and is willing to also coach normal people. The body of work that he has done speaks for itself. Multiple Grand Slam Championships, Master Series Titles, World Champions, and yet just as worried about his junior students winning high school matches.

  • Avatar BB

    We love our visits here! Feels like a home away from home.

  • Avatar FS

    I did the tennis camp and enjoyed it. Then I turned on The Tennis Channel and watched his team win the Miami Open and the Tennis Channel called him the best in the business. He is great for teaching the game of tennis

  • Avatar JN

    Very nice courts and great staff. No weaknesses.

  • Avatar IM

    The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and helped with anything I needed. They also knew when and how to challenges us and when to ease up a little. I came here with my high school tennis team for a little trip/vacation over a long weekend and it is safe to say that this was one of – if not the best – tennis trips I’ve ever been on. I would jump at the chance to visit this place a second time.

  • Avatar HO

    I recently attended the Bryan Brothers Fantasy Clinic with their Co-Coach Dave Marshall. What a treat it was to learn from the greatest doubles team of all time and their coach. The action was fast pace, the learning was next to none. The 4 hours went by like it was 15 minutes- the learning, the tennis so much fun! Where else can you learn from Hall of Famers and their Coach. Loved hearing stories of what Dave is doing now coaching Vasselin, Kanepi, Dabrowski, Olmos and Paire on tour. Seriously, this place is incredible- you walk in and see the Monte Carlo trophy, the World Championship trophy, the US Open and Wimbledon trophy. Only Nadal’s can top it- and that is in Spain.

  • Avatar DJ

    Dave Marshall Tennis should be number 1 on your tennis destination Bucket List. You have Dave Marshall, ATP and WTA coach, sharing his knowledge and tour experience in his clinics, camps and private lessons.The clinics are full of energy, diverse drills, and instruction that challenges you to become a smarter, more confident player. His understanding of doubles strategy teaches you the importance of problem solving, communicating and how to run the plays. Here are some quotes from Dave Marshall,”Be a force at the net,”Consistency of mindfulness and purpose will be keys to success,”Positive energy-Positive thoughts.” Jackson, under Dave’s guidance, developed into a knowledgeable teacher and coach who brings energy, enthusiasm and passion to DMT .Don and Tyler are wonderful additions to the teaching staff and it’s great to have them there. Come live the experience of world class instruction, high energy tennis, friendly players and the beautiful beach’s and sunsets of Delaware. See you at DMT!!!

  • Avatar MW

    Always enjoy my weekends with Dave and his staff. Whether advanced or just a beginner, you are treated like royalty and get exactly the coaching you need. When not on the court Dave makes sire that all aspects of your visit are second to none. In addition to my own experience, Dave set up lessons for my daughter and her high school teammates and personally taught the girls, always combining hard work and a fun time.

  • Avatar ER

    Dave is a good professional coach. He has coached me to the finals of Indian Wells, Washington and Vienna. I look forward to the American summer and training at the club.

    Dave Marshall is an incredible tennis pro. Every clinic is exciting and life changing. He is the master of doubles tennis!

    I am a self-professed “tennis junkie”– I play tennis 6 days a week- whenever and wherever I can. I would play all day, everyday if I could! Luckily for me, my extended family lives in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, just 10 minutes from the Dave Marshall Academy. Ive played at many different tennis clubs/resorts but I always look forward to playing at Dave Marshall. I honestly love this place for so many different reasons, but the number one reason is the staff and instruction. Dave Marshall is a legendary tennis coach– but he is also the nicest, most humble guy you will ever meet. I started playing tennis for the first time, very late in life, so Im not exactly pro level. Truthfully, I was a little intimidated at my first clinic and for my first lesson. I figured coaching me was definitely way below his pay grade but I quickly learned that Dave (and his staff) treats everyone with respect no matter who they are or their skill level. Ive also worked extensively with Tyler who I just LOVE. Tyler is extremely skillful at diagnosing issues and honing in on technique. He has this infectious energy and somehow, at his young age, encompasses the maturity and skill of someone who has been coaching for 50+ years. Lastly, I am always amazed at how friendly everyone is. Tennis establishments often have a layer of attitude, but you wont find any of that at Dave Marshall. My kids will be attending camp here this summer and I am so excited for them!

  • Avatar SP

    Dave Marshall is the real deal in tennis! My son has been taking lessons and clinics with him for the past few years and he is truly an amazing mentor and coach. The tennis is high energy and fun. Dave and all his staff are world-class tennis professionals and we feel amazingly lucky to be able to take his lessons and clinics. My son went to Dave’s Bryan Brothers clinic last year and said it was the best day of his life. Can’t wait for his summer camp and Bryan Brothers clinic in 2022!!

  • Avatar PP

    I Always love Dave Marshall Tennis because I can count on getting superb instruction and new challenges for my game. There’s always a lot going on…high energy ! Its a great place for teams to come in and work on things together for a weekend. No matter what level player you are the pros will push you to play better and think better on the court. The staff is friendly and helpful and clinics are competitive and fun…its a great atmosphere and the pool is very inviting!!

  • Avatar DS

    I can’t say enough good things about Dave Marshall Tennis! Dave Marshall is an exceptional tennis pro. He has the rare ability to effectively coach players at all levels, from beginners to players on the ATP/WTA tours. My lessons and clinics with Dave have greatly improved my skills and made me a smarter and more aggressive tennis player. I’ve also really enjoyed working with the younger pros, Jackson and Tyler. Jackson and Tyler add a lot of energy, athleticism and fun to the clinics. There is a nice sense of community at Dave Marshall Tennis – many of the players I’ve met at Dave’s clinics over the years have become good friends. On any given weekend (even in the middle of the winter), you can always count on walking in and finding a great group of people to play with. I’ve also enjoyed arranging girls’ tennis weekend packages through Dave Marshall Tennis. As with everything else, Dave and the other pros do a great job of providing a fun and challenging tennis experience. My tennis friends from Northern Virginia have often remarked that Dave’s clinics include unique drills and instructional methods that they haven’t experienced other places. We look forward to doing it every year! For all of these reasons, I highly recommend Dave Marshall Tennis!

  • Avatar WE

    Dave Marshall and his staff are world renowned. I started taking lessons from dave 10 years ago! I never miss a week if I can help it. So much fun very supportive and will cater to all skill levels. I started out as a customer and now we are very good friends. He will pick up the phone just to say hi, meanwhile dave coaches some of the best players in the world, he’s a humble guy and certainly a great experience for anyone who wants to improve their game!! I highly recommend this outfit.

  • Avatar JB

    Dave Marshall Tennis is simply special. Dave is a superb individual and his coaching is genuinely world-class. Dave coaches a myriad of players, both men and women, singles and doubles on the pro tour, yet also coaches kids and adults who are picking up a racquet for the first time. He has carefully selected a staff who he has personally mentored day in and out for many years to help teach and guide his philosophies at his center. I honestly would recommend Dave and his staff to anyone at any level. His passion is contagious and he will inspire you to love tennis and just be a better version of yourself. An added bonus is his tennis center is at the beach ( Lewes/ Rehoboth/ Dewey) and you can enjoy all the benefits the area has to offer- great lodging, the ocean family time, truly fantastic restaurants, and fun nightlife. I have taken private lessons w Dave, tons of clinics , have organized weekend camps/ getaways for my USTA teams, and sent my kids to him. I always walk away feeling like a million bucks bc I’m better for the time I spent, the cost (which is a steal when you consider the professionals he has and is coaching ) is more than fair, and I just enjoy the time with Dave, his staff and many other regular players I have gotten to know through the years. One parting piece of advice – GO!!! And do not be intimidated by his credentials. He has the rare gift to connect w/ anyone – champions at Wimbledon, middle aged person needing a new hobby, little one who wants to try a sport. Tennis is the sport of a lifetime. Dave is the coach of a lifetime.

  • Avatar RD

    Dave Marshall Tennis Academy is top-notch. I’ve taken drills there and the instruction is excellent, Dave and staff make everyone feel welcome and valued, everyone has fun and learns so much. Also, I was lucky enough to experience the Dave Marshall/Bryan Bros camp and it was unbelievable. The Bryan Brothers were kind, funny, engaging. Loved the tennis, the stories, the camaraderie. Everyone had the most amazing time. Do yourself a favor, and check out Dave Marshall Tennis. You’ll improve your game and have a great time learning how.

  • Avatar KL

    I am currently ranked 300 in the world and was a College All American. During my time with Dave and Ellis in Delaware, I learned more in 3 days than I had in my entire life. They are both personable and want their students to get better. They can keep it simple and care. They both keep up with me while I am on the tour. Dave even got me practice time with Bob Bryan and him in Florida. Highly recommend them if you want to get better. The club is beautiful. The people working are so nice. After my time at the club, I held my own playing doubles with Tommy Paul and we did well in the next tournament.

  • Avatar CS

    I’ve known Dave Marshall for 25 years. He is the best tennis instructor period! He has made our son into an excellent junior player and state champion. There are very few if any places in the United States where you can receive instruction from both a Grand Slam champion coach (Dave) and a Grand Slam champion player (Ellis Ferreira). At Dave Marshall Tennis you will get your lesson/instruction from Dave and Ellis, not a part time college player or lower level pro. Dave makes tennis fun, you’ll have a great time. You also will be exhausted from so much ball hitting!

  • Avatar AC

    We love playing tennis at Dave Marshall’s. He is a phenomenal pro. Extremely knowledgeable, upbeat and an all around great person. His lessons are intense and the best workouts, hitting the most balls. My son has been playing with Dave since he began to walk. There is no one I would trust more than Dave to coach him. We wish we lived closer so that we could work with him more than we already do. I highly recommend his facility. Between Dave and Ellis his program can’t be beat!

  • Avatar ML

    I live in NYC and have taken clinics, private lessons, and various programs here, but I can tell you that my instruction at Dave Marshall Tennis far surpasses all of this. Having been going there for years now, I continue to be pleased, excited, and amazed at what I learn at Dave Marshall’s. Dave’s experience and continued affiliation with top tennis greats — the Bryan Brothers, Ellis Ferreira, two-time Grand Slam champion, and others — just goes to show you how very amazing tennis with Dave is and continues to be. Dave is able to work with you one-on-one, even when you are in a group clinic. No matter where you are or what you’re working on, Dave gets it and offers strategy and focus. Featuring innovative and energetic drills, strategy, combined with match play are exceptional, fun, and so very exciting. Those of us who love tennis know what it feels like to be excited when we play. I feel that every time I take any clinic or lesson at Dave Marshall’s. Jackson Bailey, a member of Dave’s coaching staff, is super talented as well. As if that weren’t enough, there’s the wonderful facilities of a gym, swimming pool, Pilates, and water aerobics. The location is perfect near the gorgeous Rehoboth beaches and nearby Lewes.

    My Time at Dave Marshall Tennis was very productive for me. I am ranked 124 in the World with goals of breaking the Top 100. I worked with Dave and Ellis at the Academy. The knowledge and experience has helped me grow my game and success on tour. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my time there. As a doubles specialist- it helps to hear from two that have done it at the highest levels as Coach and Player.

  • Avatar DM

    Dave is one of the most knowledgeable tennis coaches you will ever meet. Both of my girls are high level players. The expertise and attention he provides is unsurpassed. He is most of all loyal and cares about them as individuals as well as tennis players. This is the place to be.

    Wonderful instruction – and great for strategy and taking your game to the next level. There arent opportunities for an average tennis player to have this type of instruction.

    Dave Marshall Tennis is conveniently located in the resort town of Lewes, DE and offers all players a technical, fun, challenging clinic that will leave you with a new arsenal to set you above your competition and win matches. I would highly recommend taking a clinic or private lesson with Dave. You will get his many years of insights into the game plus, tips coming right from the tour as he is one of the Brian Brother’s coach.

    An absolute must if you want to take your tennis game to the next level. Does not get any better than having Dave Marshall give you the same kind of instruction that he gives to the Pros. Fantastic tennis and people. I am looking forward to doing it again soon.

  • Avatar CN

    Attending Dave Marshall tennis was a great pleasure. Dave’s program is very unique in the sense Dave and his staff teach you the game of tennis and how to play the game of tennis. How Dave and Ellis run the clinics to focus on the game and how to play, with the clinics reinforcing how to play tennis. (finding out many things I did not know ) I have attended many tennis resorts all over the world and this week of learning and playing was by far the best I have had and most valuable ever attended. Most tennis camps you hit tennis balls over and over again at Dave’s resort you learn why and where to hit the ball. Both Dave and Ellis play in the clinics which made the clinics much more valuable because they teach during the clinic. With Dave and Ellis playing in the clinics the value well exceeded the cost of the clinics. My wife and I plan go again it is just a question of when, I cannot recommend Dave highly enough. Many teams in our area on very interested in switching over to Dave for team lessons and I completely agree with them to switch to Dave and his team.

  • Avatar AF

    Fantastic camp we attend on a regular basis. Dave, Ellis and Jackson always provide our team with great lessons, laughs and fun competition. We are on our 5th year attending Dave Marshall weekend adult camps. and always seem to learn something new each time. Dave doesn’t just love to play tennis, he truly loves to teach and watch people learn. It is great to see him coaching the Bryan Brothers and being part of such an amazing team.

    I have been training with Ellis Ferriera for a couple of months now. What I have learned have and will be a part of my game going forward. Ellis is strong in correcting your postures, finding the right strike zones, helping you with spotting and aiming the balls at the target. Be prepared to work hard, listen well to the many tips throughout the lesson. We are extremely lucky to have a competent team of professionals like Ellis where I train. This is the guy you want to have if your serious about tennis.

    Dave Marshall has had my children in many different tennis clinics over the years. Dave takes the time to work individually with each child and understand their unique learning abilities and adapts his training to give them the best coaching to learn and succeed when it comes to their tennis. Even away from the tennis court Dave has had an influence in a positive way as a role model with each of my children. We highly recommend Dave and his staff.

    I live in Washington DC. I wanted to get away from the city and found this camp. It was very good. I enjoyed the instruction and fast paced drills. I also had a few great meals at Striper Bites and Salt Air. Recommend The Marshall Tennis Camp as well as the area of Lewes. I am sure that the summer is busy, but this is what I needed.

    Enjoyable time- excellent instruction. Dave was away coaching the Bryan Brothers to the Miami open title, we had Ellis and Jackson- they did a nice job.

    Simply the best

  • Avatar HL

    What other camp can you go to that has coaches who have either won multiple Grand Slams as a player or as a Coach? I would guess Rafa’s with Uncle Tony- or Newks or Maybe Cliff- but the price point is much higher. I learned a lot.

  • Avatar PF

    Dr. Dave has a well thought out program and features excellent instruction from himself, Ellis Ferreira, and Jackson. I’ve attended his weekend clinics for many years and always learn something new. I’ve also taken my high school team there for many years because of the exceptional coaching they receive from Dave and Ellis. Not only the coaching but they relate well to our high school age players, giving them encouragement, teaching the latest techniques, and providing a fun, challenging time for all levels of players. The resort lacks a hotel but they always have managed to accommodate us in houses or condos in the surrounding area. Lots of restuarants in the area. Facility could use more outdoor hard courts.

    I really enjoyed the tennis camp this weekend as well as watching the tournament. If they can help the tour players, I thought they could help me- let’s just say I am not as good as The Bryans- but I am taller!

    Dave Marshall’s instruction – and that offered by his staff – has improved my game so much. The clinics are well suited for people at all levels, and the atmosphere is always focused on ensuring people improve in both skills and strategy while also being relaxed and fun. I’ve met a lot of great people here, and highly recommend the clinics to anyone visiting the Delaware beaches and to locals as well.

  • Avatar SL

    The coaches of the Bryan brothers and I got to take a clinic with them- very cool

  • Avatar KK

    The drills and instruction time were very well managed. One of Dave’s strengths is that he can relate concepts and strategies from many different views. People have different ways of grasping information and he uses science, movies, analogies, life experiences, etc., to make sure his point is well received. Ellis is also an excellent instructor and I felt that we were fortunate to have such high quality instruction from both Dave and Elilis.

    .The instructions and knowledge of the game of tennis is outstanding at the Dave Marshall tennis club.You can always find excellent quality tennis players to play with according to your level. The pros are up to date on todays tennis games regarding strategy, equipment and technique. Overall an outstanding place for playing tennis, relaxing by the pool or working out in the fitness center. Perfectly located between the beautiful beaches of Lewes and Rehoboth with plenty of wonderful restaurants to delight all palates. After a long day of tennis you can stretch your muscles at the Pilates studio which is a part of the facility. Highly recommend this as a weekend getaway or spend the whole summer playing tennis, swimming and eating!!

    Went with my team and we had a great time. Enjoyed learning from Dave, Ellis and Jackson. Pretty exciting to see Dave on the tennis channel the next week in the box as the Bryan’s got to the finals in Indian Wells- where else can you go to tennis camp and have a Grand Slam Champion (Ellis) and a coach that is helping The Greatest Doubles team of all time (Dave)? Jackson is really nice and he related to our team- I give it a positive review

    Coach Dave Marshall runs an outstanding tennis center And top-notch program. I have attended several other tennis center in Florida, California, and by far this is the best. I learned simple but effective cues that produced immediate results.. The clinics are well organized and always help me improve my game. Back at recent league matches, I see the results in the improvement when played with my team. Coach Marshall and Pro Tour Coach Ellis are friendly, helpful, and extremely professional. Very happy I found them, I am coming back now and are organizing camp for my team.

    Dave Marshall’s camps are great for beginners and intermediate players. He tailors the level and intensity to our abilities and keeps working to help us improve. Dave and Ellis are 2 of the best instructors I’ve worked with. They can relate as players and have a lot of great insight to share. The indoor facilities make this a great choice year round!

  • Avatar AA

    We had a small group, which was ideal for the four indoor courts. Dave and Ellis are fun, keep the drills and explanations moving, and we got in plenty of play, though I could always use a bit more! I feel like I took away a lot of good tips and strategies for my 3.5-4.0 singles and doubles league play. This is not a resort per se–just some tennis courts, and instructors. The indoor courts aren’t particularly well lit, but they were fine for the instruction.

  • Avatar PR

    This winter I attended my second camp with Dave Marshall. Rather than repeat a lot of information from the first camp, he started right where he left off and challenged us in a whole new and elevated way. Dave is a smart guy and he reads his audience really well. He had us running, hitting, laughing and THINKING about the game. We all left there with not just a better game, but with a smarter game. He has an awesome staff (Ellis is amazing!) and I look forward to making this an annual event with my incredible team. Go! You will love it!

    I just got back from a 4 day weekend camp, and it was marvelous. The camp was 10 hours and included stroke analysis, drills, and match play with the pros and other campers. We were lucky enough to have Dave Marshall, David Macpherson and Ellis Ferreira as our coaches. At first, I thought it was a joke when they said Mr. Macpherson coached the Bryan Brothers and Mr. Ferreira was a grand slam champion. But, the joke was on me. The owner of the camp Mr. Marshall could not have been nicer; he spent plenty of time helping me to learn. This was a lovely time for me and my friends. Heartfelt thank you to everyone.

  • Avatar JM

    I’m thrilled to have come across Dave Marshall Tennis. I was in Rehoboth Beach for vacation for 2 weeks and attended the tennis clinics daily. Not only did I have a lot of fun, but I feel like I picked up a lot of helpful skills and really sharpened my game. They accommodate all skill levels. The coaches are great, and everyone is super friendly. I highly recommend Dave Marshall Tennis for anyone that enjoys Tennis, is looking to sharpen their game, meet great people, and/or get a little exercise.

    This was a well thought out tennis camp. My ladies team and I just returned from The Dave Marshall Tennis Camp and we loved it.

We will be back and we will all be telling TRO about this tennis camp.

My whole team learned a ton- we also enjoyed time with Brittany, Ellis and Jordan. Also enjoyed playing against Jenelle though she did not work with our group. We will be back- only weakness is that 8 hours is not enough. Really like the Lewes-Rehoboth area in the off-season, plenty to do and good food and did I mention shopping??????

    My family and I came for the summer camps and loved it. We had a fantastic time.

What a nice family atmosphere- loved loved it. In today’s crazy world it is nice to step back in time and see a family working together. Did i say We loved it. The beach is close by as is the shopping and really nice places to eat. We also did the weekend camp this weekend with Dave and Ellis and it was fun- I promise to stay out of the pit of death!

    My team and I went down to Dave Marshall tennis for an adult tennis clinic weekend. It was exceptional! I have been to many different tennis resort up and down the eastern seaboard and nothing compared to the instruction I recieved at this facility. As a longtime tennis addict I thought I had heard it all but Dave and his team were able to find holes in my game and gave me the tools to fix it. My only negative comment is that the facility is a little small. But the instruction is well worth the cramp spaces. I’m already planning our next weekend !

  • Avatar KK

    I love playing here- I have gotten so much better in four years.

  • Avatar CD

    Fantastic facility. Dave is not only great fun, but a serious coach who was able to bring out my very best game right from the start. He showed me how my game could improve quickly, leaving me with confidence and some solid instruction to fall back on. I couldn’t recommend more highly.

  • Avatar TG

    I’m really focused on developing my game and have been to several tennis camps over the past 2 years. Dave Marshall’s was by far one of my most quality tennis camps I have been to. World class tennis instruction (and I’m not saying this lightly). Both weekends I was there, I played 10+ hours of meaningful tennis (i.e., not “king of the court” drills to pass time) full of player-specific instruction, focused on developing specific skills. I will go back every chance I get. Being able to train with Ellis was super special.

    Spent two days working with Dave Marshall and it completely changed my game. He catered his lessons to my athletic and tennis level (I’m a retired professional athlete who played some tennis as a kid and have recently gotten back into the game) He spent time working on technique along with game strategy, something I need if I want to progress from my current 4.5 rating. Dave also asked me to participate in some doubles matches with him and some fellow players he plays with regularly. A kind and friendly gesture and I was thankful for the experience. Can’t wait to go back and work with Dave again. Thanks Coach

  • Avatar EE

    What a great camp!! A group of us (USTA rated 3.0-4.0) have been coming back to Dr. Dave’s for years now and we already cant wait until next year! For years, Dave and his staff have been improving our game, giving us professional coaching and drills and doing both a FUN and PROFESSIONAL camp. His staff is top notch and the facility continues to be the best we’ve ever visited. Dave is both a great instructor and good guy. He’s flexible in setting up a camp that both pushes us and adapts to our level. Each year we learn many new things and what we learn helps improve our game back in DC. Anyone who is in the DE area and is looking for a great facility, instruction or camp should check out Dr. Dave’s camp. Its really a great find!!!

  • Avatar ST

    I have been attending Dr. Dave Marshall’s tennis camps since 2002 when he was the Director at Sea Colony. My Washington, DC/Maryland based mixed doubles group decided immediately to follow Dr. Dave to the Plantations when he opened his tennis academy. We will always remain loyal campers based not only on the exceptional instruction, drills, and insight that Dr. Dave brings to the clinic, but his exceptional focus on stellar customer service and ability to build on your strengths and improve/fortify your weaknesses. I actually learned the concept of “constructing a point” while taking his clinic from members of his outstanding staff: Coach Tom Mancuso, the late Coach Harry Hipps, Coach Brittany Marshall and other exceptional tennis professionals.
    The camp is a short drive from Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, and other eastern or mid-atlantic cities, so I implore you to take advantage of a Dr. Dave clinic. Not only is Dr. Dave a phenomenal instructor, but he also hosts clinics with his resident and touring coaches such as Dave MacPherson, coach of the Bryan Brothers, and Ellis Ferreria, winner of multiple Grand Slam doubles titles, Wayne Odesnik, Top 50 ATP player, and others. If you are serious and I mean truly serious about improving your game as well as wanting a non-stressful learning environment, Dave Marshall Tennis Academies is the place you need to book for your next vacation. If you have friends or family that aren’t interested in tennis, they can walk next door to his fitness center and work out in a world class gym, take hot yoga, pilates, or other fitness classes along with visiting the swimming pool and laying out in the sun.
    Don’t wait any longer – – book your clinic & vacation today!

    Outstanding experience this past weekend at Dave Marshall! My brother and I attended the camp from Friday through Sunday. Dave has an excellent staff and they all seem to be adept at spotting stroke flaws. All aspects of the game were worked on including ground strokes, volleys, serves, positioning and the mental game. The approach is instructive, intuitive, and supportive – did I also mention fun? We had a total blast. I left with a sense of optimism about my game and a renewed love for the sport. The accomodations within the grounds were comfortable and welcoming – better than any hotel could be. Overall, I had a superb time and cannot wait for my next visit. Thanks Dave!

    My wife and I recently visited Dave’s clinic on a recommendation from friends. We are glad we did. Located in beautiful Lewes, DE ( yes, even in the winter), we were treated to top-notch instruction and able to play against nationally ranked collegiate players and other higher level participants which really helped to elevate our game. Dave is very personable and his instruction very practical. I recommend his clinic very highly and without reservation ( although warmer weather would be nice!!)

    Lots of fun drills and great instruction. You will hit tons of balls and use all of your strokes.

    We do tennis vacations 2-3x year, but weekend camps with Dave are always the best. The tempo of the game and the drills are always right, he pushes the game to the next level no matter what. We always feel better players after the camps with Dave, who really is a fantastic pro because, we believe, he genuinely cares about improving our game.

  • Avatar IG

    Great experience!!!! Dave and his staff are excellent at providing exactly what you are looking for. My wife and I are completely different levels of play and we both left feeling our games dramatically improved. Great mix of instruction, drills, and strategy. The modern game of tennis comes alive in a great weekend of fun. The individual attention was beyond all expectations, the great personality of the staff and impeccable service (such as never picking up a ball) including recommendations on a superb nearby Hotel Rehoboth and unbelievable restaurants like Salt Air make a complete experience. Perfect option, just 2 hours from Philadelphia, for great tennis, great town (shops, food, bear) and nice beach. Will be back next year.

    If you want to learn how to play the complete, both the mental and physical game of tennis, this is the place to go. This is not a place to go if you want to lounge at the pool. An excellent choice for singles, doubles, and groups to learn from top notch tennis professionals. My experience as a 3.5 player, after the first weekend, was that my play improved significantly based on what I was taught. I learned where my strengths were, and more importantly my weaknesses and how to correct them. I was taught what to do in situations I would likely find myself in as a doubles player. Returning to play with 4.0 players, I understood what to do with the ball, how to best get myself into a position to execute effective doubles play and then to execute with a strategy in mind. The staff at Dave Marshall Tennis all had something to teach to each attendee, whatever level they were at. Everything was evaluated and areas of improvement were highlighted and drilled on effectively. An excellent teaching was the mental game, both about court presence and the best attitude for being prepared for those important points in the game where one could easily get flustered. Understanding the mental game within the game is a perspective that the all the staff at Dave Marshall brought to the attention of each individual. One of the added extras was the friendliness of the people who attended. I think the atmosphere at Dave Marshall attracts and builds on that characteristic. My wife and I have been to Dave Marshall once and I had the opportunity to attend a second time individually. We will be back.

  • Avatar ES

    I attended a 2 day session with my doubles partner and we loved it so much I booked a 3 day session for my son who plays varsity tennis for his high school. Dave gives you tons of personal attention and works on your mental game more than anything else! It was exactly what we needed. We had tons of one on one attention and got opportunities to practice what we learned with group play as well. I would highly recommend Dave Marshall tennis and will definitely return soon!

He manages the entire operation while also teaching you great tennis. I can not wait to get back for another session.

    Just back from Labor Day Weekend in Rehoboth Beach, DE and had the good fortune of spending time at Dave Marshall’s place in nearby Lewes. I had good memories of hitting with Dave when he was at Sea Colony and was curious to visit him at his new location. Sure glad I did. On one day’s notice he put together a mini-program over a 3-day period, that included personal hits with Dave, inclusion in two of his clinics and participating in a very nice doubles match with three of his regular members who live in the area.
    My wife hit with Dave the day we left and she now has transformed a somewhat “dated” forehand into a very nice open stroke with a lot more pace and consistency. Hope to make it back Sept 17th, when Bryan Brothers coach, Dave MacPherson will be there to work with those in attendance.
    He has both hard and soft courts outside, and very nice indoor courts similar to the Decoturf at the U.S. Open. Great fitness facility in the clubhouse and a very nice swimming pool. He even has a hot yoga facility out back which I passed on. I stayed offsite this time less than 5 miles away on the beach, but next time might try the condos at The Plantations where his facility is located. Can’t wait to go back.

    [Our grandchildren] attended the camp from Aug 1st to the 5th. They both enjoyed the camp. [Our granddaughter] made great strides as she had only played tennis twice before attending. The instructors were very encouraging and made it fun. I noticed that if the kids did as they were told they made good shots. The important thing is that while there was constant and good instruction it was always enjoyable for the kids. Keep the good work.

    We had a wonderful weekend at Dave’s Camp. My husband took me for the weekend as an early birthday present. We learned a ton and were matched up with a group of women who were very strong players- so the competition and play was excellent. Dave unfortunately had to coach his college team in the finals of the ncaa’s, but Tom and Jerry filled in and did a great job. We will definitely come back next year- after college tennis season- so we can have Dave all three days. We had a wonderful weekend at Dave’s Camp.

    I have just come back from a weekend camp at Dave Marshall Tennis Academies and had a blast there. I was primarily looking for a solid instruction camp and I was impressed with the quality of the classes with Dave Marshall and Tom Mancuso. They really get you to think about the game and how to play it smartly as well as your particular style and how to improve it. Excellent balance between instruction, workout, strategy, fun, etc, so it made our 3:30hs+/day on court very productive yet pleasant.
    My group was fairly homogeneous with strong players at 4.0 level, which made the camp even better. I am definitely going back soon and highly recommend to those how are serious about improving their game.

  • Avatar SC

    The clinics are fast-moving, varied, and great instruction. The indoor courts are rather unattractive and not well temperature controlled. I appreciated being accommodated for a weekend clinic last minute recently. Unfortunately, on a day-to-day basis, it is difficult to get information on daily clinics. One is told by the desk that Dave Marshall is person one must speak with. Told to call back at 4:00, but when call is made he is not available and you are told to call back in half hour. Well, I don’t sit w/the phone all the time, and this is very inconvenient–the desk should be able to sign up a player and know what is available!

    I have been attending Dr. Dave Marshall’s clinics for nearly 10 years with my fellow league players from the DC-MD-Northern VA-Baltimore area- (Mid-Atlantic)and I have never left a clinic without adding an additional level of knowledge and insight into this game we all love so much. I fully credit Dave Marshall & his staff with providing the superior level of instruction and drills (which I continued to practice & implement) to helping me achieve two levels in my rating. Dave’s approach & instruction will work for teams, doubles pairings, or singles players; he has the know-how to make you so much better that you would have to be insane not to travel to Lewes, Dealware to attend one of his clinics. In addition, the instruction you receive for the price cannot be surpassed by any tennis resort or academy in the nation. If you are serious about your tennis and want to learn in an environment where professionals of the highest level are teaching you the same tips they have taught to college players and professionals on the tour, then I don’t need to say anymore; register to attend a clinic or private session and be prepared to join a large number of us who are loyal students, followers, and friends of the Dave Marshall Tennis Academies. Take care. Steve Tolbert

    Great instruction by Tom and Dave! They are a dedicated and fun team, responsive to your specific needs and taught us some new, very helpful techniques. We’ll go again!

  • Avatar JS

    Excellent instruction is provided in a fun relaxed atmosphere. The weekend clinics are good workouts that will improve you entire game. The facilities are good and are in the process of being upgraded.

    We have taken tennis lessons from Dave for nearly 20 years, and so we followed him to his new facility at The Plantations. We just finished a 3-day marathon there and had about 9 hours of lessons from Tom, who is terrific-great depth of knowledge, and just as important, great personality and patience–very “sympathique”..We are in our 60’s and he understands our needs. We learned a lot-as always. We’re planning a return trip with some tennis-playing friends. And-the beach and Maryland crabs are only a few minutes away!

    My main focus is on tennis at the Plantations facility and also at a kids camp on campus of Washington College, MD. Dave and his outstanding group of associates are THE best tennis coaches BAR NONE. Dave’s unique personality, love and passion for the game of tennis is expressed a variety of ways with every ball fed to every client regardless of age or social status. You simply cannot fine a better place to learn the game of tennis than under the tutelage of Dave Marshall. End of story.

    Travelling from the U.K., and with my 3 kids in tow, I was unsure what to expect . I need not have worried. From the outset, we were all made very welcome. The children were matched quickly into separate groups commeasurate with their age and ability. They were well instructed in such a way as to help improve their basic strokes whilst making it fun and entertaining.
    I also learnt a great deal and found the instruction hugely beneficial. Every day I met new people who were enjoying the experience as much as myself and my children.

    What an awesome two weeks we had! Completely inspiring. My family has been vacationing in Rehoboth for over 30 years. Now that we have discovered Dave Marshall Tennis Academy – the beach will never be the same! Initially, I felt intimidated attending “a tennis academy”, fearing I would embarrass myself. But Dave, Turtle, Tom, Britney, Steven, Casey –and entire staff were extremely friendly, and helpful. I never felt out of place or “not good enough”. I felt at home immediately – and they made sure of that.
    We decided to attend Dave Marshall Tennis Academy so I can improve my inconsistent (intermediate) game and to help our youngest daughter, who only took up tennis less than a year ago, get ready to try out for the high school team. The help she received and the improvements she made in just two weeks are amazing. My whole family participated in the daily clinics, private lessons and/or the morning kids’ camp. I don’t even know where to being to describe just how wonderful it was. It even inspired my non-tennis husband and oldest daughter to improve their game….and it really did. Between the tennis, gym swimming pool and the people we met, I didn’t even mind giving up my ever-so coveted “beach time”:) You could not ask for a better value for your dollar.
    Dave Marshall Tennis Academy has inspired me to step up my game. I cannot wait to come back next summer …If not sooner for a “girl’s weekend”!!
    Thank You!

    My family has learned so much about tennis since we first came to the clinic this summer. We started with the basics and then got to the more challenging techniques. We can’t wait until next year when we come back. This is the best place to learn tennis with Dr.Dave and his Staff!

    My family has traveled from Manhattan to Sea Colony Resort every summer for 10 years for two reasons – Dave Marshall Tennis and the Delaware beaches. This summer, we returned again to Sea Colony and its beaches, but every day we drove just north to The Plantations and the Dave Marshall Tennis Academies for our private summer lessons, clinics, and tennis camps with Dave Marshall and his outstanding staff.
    I simply cannot say enough about Dave and his superior coaching staff. As always, my children were treated like tennis royalty. Dave has been coaching my daughter, now a high school player, for a decade. She loves tennis because of Dave’s belief in her and his commitment each summer to helping her improve her game. His approach embraces an unmatched dedication to helping tennis players, of all ages and skill levels, build on their individual game while inspiring all players to work hard and love the game. Sea Colony has lost a legend and The Plantations is our tennis resort destination now.

    I Just started playing tennis at a 2.5 level about a year and a half ago and today I am on my way to a 4.0 level with the help of Dave Marshall and friends. The EXCEPTIONAL teaching staff makes it fun and rewarding. Our team actually got to play with Dave MacPhearson (Bryan Bros. coach) and Ellis Ferriero a number of times. Lite bulbs were gone off left and right and the team was highly impressed with all instruction. (The “BEST” we ever had) !! We will be back. Thank You Dave Marshall and friends!

    Exceptional tennis knowledge is what you get at Dave Marshall Tennis. Dave is an amazing teacher for both youth and adult players. Dave and his staff provide amazing opportunities for you to advance in your tennis game. The clinics are top notch, there is always great match opportunities, and the instruction is current with this ever changing game. This is the place to be to improve your game!

    We were fortunate to book our mini camp weekend while Dave had Ellis Ferriera-a three time Grand Slam Doubles Champion and Dave “Mac” McPherson-Coach to the Bryan Brothers-as guest instructors. I had suffered a stroke 7 weeks ago and lost some muscle memory and the patience and caring they displayed made our experience a memorable one.
    Ellis, Dave and Mac kept things lively and fun. The instruction of course was top notch. Dave and his staff also were excellent in explaining the “game within the game”, doubles strategies and tips to make us better tennis players in a very intense short period of time. I would highly recommend Dave’s camp for any one looking to take their game to the next level.

    Dave is personally involved with the instruction. He is an outstanding instructor. In one weekend, I learned and perfected new forehand, kick serve and slice serve. Improved backhand, forehand slice and backhand slice shots. Overall game significantly improved. Staff is great and you never have to pick up a ball! Thought I died and went to tennis heaven.

    I attended daily stroke clinics (1 hour each) at Dave Marshall Tennis the week of 6/7/10. I enjoyed these lessons tremendously. The instructor was friendly, laid back, and gave great instruction. I heard some things I had not heard before, and I’ve had years of lessons. I cannot wait to use my new “tips” when I return home to play with my regular group. I look forward to returning to more clinics at Dave Marshall as soon as I can.

    Fabulous camp! The instruction is fantastic and effective. The atmosphere is fun and competitive. The staff bends over backwards to make your experience fantastic. We had several pros, hours of drills for a great price and then they offered to let us play for longer at no extra charge. They provide drinks, snacks and T-shirts and we never picked up a ball. They scoop them up with their ball machine! All we needed was a masseuse and it could have been tennis heaven.

    This was our fourth time to Dave’s camp – and the first time to his new resort at Plantation. As always – Dave gave not only great physical instruction, but the strategies and mind set to move your game to a new level. The weekend was instructional but also fun and enjoyable.

    I am a nationally ranked player who stops in to train with Dave whenever I can. The wealth of knowledge is great and the work outs intense- I also enjoy using the gym and the hot yoga studio and the pool. This is for the serious tennis player that wants to get better and learn to play the game- not just hit mindless tennis balls.

  • Avatar FS

    I did the Dave Marshall tennis camp and loved it. I traveled a good distance and it was worth the trip because of the instruction- he also set me up for hot yoga and daily fitness work outs in the gym. It was a very good experience for me.

  • Avatar SB

    Great team clinic. Felt we were really pushed to bring up our level of play. Little down time and that made it even better. Can’t wait to go back!

  • Avatar SR

    A lot of personal attention even though it was a clinic. reat environment to learn!
