“You will not find a more positive, motivating tennis instructor than Coach PK! “
~ Jackie Smash, Los Angeles Tennis Group Meetup Lead Organizer
Hi, I am Phillip Kim better known as Coach PK! I am the Director of Tennis for the City of Azusa and head tennis instructor at the historic five star Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena. I have a federal background check in place to teach children and adults and have worked with hundreds of tennis explorers like yourself. I am just as passionate about improving your tennis game as I am my own!
PK is an amazing coach and person, and a pleasure to be around on the court. I am so incredibly happy with the progress that I have made since working together and this is reflected in the results that I have seen in my own game. I thoroughly enjoy each and every lesson and always feel like I am continuing to improve both my technique and strategy, while actively implementing the work we do in practice during my matchplay. From the start, I told PK I was willing to put in the time and work, so we would routinely do 3 hour non-stop lessons and he would absolutely push me all the way. Since we have been working together, I have won 3 leagues and 1 tournament at the 3.5-4.0 level, and it has only been a little over 2 years since I first started playing.

Option 1. Private Lessons: $80 / hour
I offer personalized one on one instruction for discounted pandemic pricing of $80 an hour in Monterey Park or Azusa for one on one and $50 per person for Semi-Private up to 4 players. I teach the 5-star system to create fast improvement and rapid results. My rate is $20 less than you would pay at iTennis and with most other private tennis instructors. Many students tell me they learn more with me in one hour than they have in years of lessons or playing tennis! So proud of them!

* 48-hour cancelation policy: Your appointment is very important to us and it is reserved especially for you. We realize that there can be some unexpected things that can come up in our lives. While truly sympathetic. When a client cancels without giving enough notice, they prevent another client from being coached during that time. In fairness to all clients as well as to the coach, this policy is in effect regardless of the reason for the cancellation. LoveSetMatch Tennis has a minimum of 48 hour cancellation/rescheduling policy. If an appointment is missed, canceled, or changed with less than 48 hours notice, the client will be charged 100% of the lesson charge. It is almost impossible to reschedule a lesson time with only 24 hours notice so unfortunately that income is lost. We truly appreciate your support of our livelihood in honoring your commitment to a lesson or supporting us when you can not.
All sessions are paid for in advance and only lessons reserved via payment at least 48 hours before the lesson date are guaranteed reserved.
Tennis is one of the safest fitness activities during the Covid Crisis. I practice safe coaching through social distancing and the use of a mask and hand sanitizer.
