Lindley Arnold is an educator currently living and working in Grand

positive relationships with children and families. As an educator he
enjoys teaching tennis to children and adults. In their pursuit to be the
best player and person they can be, Lindley uses his skills from inside
and outside of the classroom.

His approach to tennis is:
The first lesson he learned in tennis is that “not all talent is distributed
equally”. However, with hard work and dedication a person can only
be limited by their own constrainst.

To help you to be the best tennis player that you can be. I will teach
you how to use the correct technique and strokes for each shot. You
will learn how to hit the right shot at the right time. While training we
will have fun, and play loose and be confident.

Besides working in education, Lindley travels all over the country
attending training sessions for tennis skill and coaching improvement.
This is done to gain new skills, and techniques from coaching ideas to
inspire others.

When not playing or coaching tennis, Lindley enjoys spending time
