I am so happy to give a recommendation to this great program. The reasons are many, so let me start by saying I am a tennis player and I have played for many years. That means I’ve been in many facilities. . This community of people running the program are all professional athletes. Google their names to see what they have accomplished, and know that they are doing this because of the love of the sport, and the desire to pass on what they know to the next generation. 2. I have watched children and adults in many programs. I have been associated with country clubs, private clubs, and just school clubs. If you observe the children and the pros, you can see their love for the sport or their need for the job. You can also see the behavior of young children and teens. Here at Rivera, you will see pros who love their children, and act and insist on polite and respectful behavior. You don’t see that other places. 3. Please come and take a look and observe. Call them and ask what a good time to see a group practicing and getting direction. Observe the way the pros interact lovingly and clearly with the children in the program. I cannot say enough about this program and wish I had known about it sooner.

The Rivera Academy has been my tennis home in Houston, TX for the past 6 years. From the time I met Alfredo and his team and started training in his program, my game really took off. In 2019 My UTR level rose to 10.5 and I achieved the #1 women's TX Open level ranking. From there, Alfredo convinced me I could have a good experience if I turned Pro and play ITF events. I trained full time and achieved a world ranking, which I thought I'd never have. I achieved a lifelong dream when I chose to train with Alfredo. Unfortunately I slipped early on and tore the cartilage in my wrist that required TFCC surgery, but the surgery was a success and now I'm back playing pain free. I would highly recommended the Rivera Tennis Academy to anyone looking to achieve their tennis goals. A big thank you to Alfredo, Ivette, and Rikki for 6 years of good times. Good luck to anybody who also wants to have a good time meeting their tennis goals. - Jacqueline Turner

Rivera Tennis Academy has been my second home for 15 incredible years as a coach, administrator, and co-owner. Working alongside director and owner Alfredo Rivera has been an honor beyond words. Under Alfredo's visionary leadership, the academy has redefined tennis coaching. His passion and expertise inspire everyone around him. The entire staff upholds a standard of excellence that's truly exceptional. The academy's commitment to player development is unparalleled. Our programs cater to all levels, incorporating cutting-edge techniques and technologies. But it's the sense of family that sets us apart. As a co-owner, I'm proud of the strides we've taken together. Alfredo's mentorship and the team's dedication have created an institution that's a true gem in the tennis community. Rivera Tennis Academy is more than a place of coaching; it's a space of growth, unity, and achievement, my second home !

I love my Tennis family that Rivera Tennis Academy has brought together. Every Saturday after adult drills we play matches together practicing what our Rivera coaches have taught us. Coach Riki and Coach Ivett create drill scenarios that we can use in our matches. Come join us!

I seriously wish I had found this place YEARS ago. They have great dedicated coaches who focus on technique while still making sure everyone in the class has a good time. Students are given time with different coaches (including conditioning!) And often get one-on-one attention. The biggest plus for me is that my kids and I can have our own classes at the same time...so everyone wins!

The Rivera Tennis Academy is not only excellent from a technical standpoint when it comes to tennis, but Alfredo Rivera also brings his experience and enthusiasm to the courts every day. He works with everyone, from beginners to advanced students. My daughters have been at the Academy since 2020, and now both of them are part of the Varsity team in High School. The Rivera Academy is more than just a tennis academy; they treat everyone with enthusiasm, respect, motivation, and perhaps even more importantly, like family. We totally recommend the Academy.
