Originally from Huntington Beach, CA, National Tennis Academy certified Bruce Gabrielson has been playing, coaching and teaching tennis since the 1960s. A former Penn Tour player and ranked as high as 17th in the Mid-Atlantic Region during the 1980s, He is also a former Riverdale Baptist HS Coach and a former DeMatha HS Coach. He coached Calvert County star Otis Cutshaw, now a head coach at the college level, during his professional playing career. Bruce also gave current tennis star, Stephen Woody (left) his first tennis lesson.

When not giving lessons, Bruce regularly plays at the Beach Elementary courts.

After an initial evaluation with a written program for the student to follow, lessons will concentrate on developing the following techniques:

  • Grips
  • Ground Strokes - Forehand and Backhand
  • Volley
  • Touch and trick shots
  • Serves (3 different serves)
  • Service Returns
  • Singles and Doubles Match Strategy
  • Footwork

  • Match preparation and muscle/reaction development will also be covered for advanced students.

    Private lessons for all age groups and abilities are scheduled at Beach Elementary on Rt 261 in Chesapeake Beach during the evening hours and weekends (when weather permits). Lesson times are flexible but I do not have a scheduled priority on the courts.

    We also can use our ball machine for drilling and spin return workouts.
