About Coach Carr 

My Tennis Journey

I started teaching tennis when I was 16 as part of my high school's, Saint Thomas Aquinas in Dover, community service.  After completing my hours long time tennis pro Seab Stanton invited me to continue working for him at his Smart Tennis Camp for the rest of the summer.  

After graduating high school a took a break from tennis for about 4 years.  During this time I left the seacoast of NH to pursuy a college degree in Baltimore.  Upon my graduation, and returning to NH, I was contacted by an old friend-Coach Mark Moulton.

My former high school was in need of a Varsity Boys Tennis and they had asked Mark if he knew anyone who may be interested.  I owe a large debt of gratitude to Mark for not only teaching me the game, but reintroducing it to me and reconnecting me with STA.

I have been coaching that boys team for the past 4 seasons.  This opportunity has lead me to not only start playing tennis again recreationally but dedicate my life to teaching others the joys of tennis.

I specialize in teaching students who have either never played a high school sport, or are looking to tennis to fill a void in their athletic schedule during the spring season.

Hi. I'm Rachel. Nice to meet you.

Coach Tom Carr

I have been playing tennis for 19 years and teaching it to others, on and off, for 11 years.

Through my role as coach to St Thomas Aquinas' Varsity Boys Tennis Team for the past 4 years, I have learned a great deal on what it takes to be a succesful high school player in the Seacoast of New Hampshire.

I have guided countless students from beginners with zero tennis experiance, to confident players who have competed in many varsity matches.

I teach my beginner students the basic strategies of the game, the fundamentals necessary to compete, how best to prepare for the season and how to get the most out of in season practices. 

Coach taught me the skills and instilled the confidence I need to be a successful tennis player!
