My name is Tom Avery, I am 66 years old. I am a Tennis Coach
Tom Avery is a lifetime athlete, tennis coach and sports nutritionist. For the last 35 plus years he has helped hundreds of thousands of tennis players from around the globe. He is the author of the popular Consistent Tennis Wins Series (A total of 8 DVDS aired on The Tennis Channel). His YouTube Channels to date have over 7 million views and is rated in the top 5 for tennis coaches on YouTube. In addition to his very popular DVD series, he has produced eight online tennis courses, Consistent Tennis Wins, Stroke Production For Power And Control, Rock Solid Forehand, Rock Solid Backhand, The Topspin and Slice Factor, Serve Domination, Tenacious Tennis Fitness, and Tennis Nutrition Secrets. He is the owner and designer of the AVERY Racquet Company.
Currently, at age 66, he is very active in teaching all ages and abilities. When he gets a chance from his busy schedule he plays in USTA Super Senior tournaments. He has played in numerous exhibitions and has played doubles against former world number one Ilie Nastase. He works out 5 days per week and you’ll even find him in an occasional Sprint Triathlon. He also teaches his tennis students and the general public of the benefits of adhering to a plant-based foods lifestyle. He is living proof that eating whole plant foods is the nutritional way to vibrant health and vitality.
Tom has taught at many prestigious tennis clubs over the years. Some of the better known are: the Bronxville Field Club, Bronxville, N.Y., Ocean Edge Resort, Cape Cod, Brewster, MA, the Naples Grande Resort, Naples, FL., and the Ritz Carlton, Naples, FL.
It’s Tom’s teaching ability that really sets him apart from other tennis instructors. Tennis players from novice to professional have used his guidance to pinpoint their errors and correct them. Tom has been gifted with an eye that enables him to detect flaws that cause inconsistency.
Tom says, “In order to take your tennis game to the best of your ability, it requires 3 things, 1.) Fundamentally sound technique, the more consistent your strokes are the more balls your opponent has to hit, this tilts the odds in your favor 2.) Fitness, if you never run out of steam you’re creating the proper environment for winning, #3.) Mental toughness, the mental part of your game can offset the other two areas when applied correctly.”
I focus on developing complete players who can perform in any match situation. I combine stroke technique with mental and physical conditioning to build the complete player who can outsmart and outlast the competition.
