More about Hema :

“I have known Hema for years and wholeheartedly recommend her and the Sunday Organized Match Play Drop Ins that she coordinates. Hema’s extremely skilled at naturally coaching players to play at their highest level. Her intuitive sense is self-evident in working with our groups and she genuinely wants everyone to enjoy tennis as much as she does.”
