I am Scott H. Harris, a USPTA-certified tennis instructor living in Riverside, CA. My main emphasis in tennis instruction is on introducing our youngest generation to the joys of tennis as a lifetime activity. My program consists of private instruction, tennis clinics, open sessions of match play, and organized junior tennis league play. As my schedule allows, I also offer private and small group instruction for adults.
I am an active Board member of the local Riverside Junior Tennis League which organizes two competitive seasons per year of league play for all ages and ability levels. I also work in the three middle schools of the Jurupa Unified School District after school to introduce tennis to the children of that community.
