More about Stan's Tennis in La Canada and La Crescenta

Stan Carter's Biography


“It is my belief that every young tennis player should be given a foundation that will allow them to grow without limit, both as players and as athletes in an environment filled with fun and encouragement.”

I have been involved with tennis ever since my father first took me to the La Canada tennis courts at the age of eight. I competed in tournaments and was number one on the Crescenta Valley High School tennis team. Pasadana High School was in the league and Stan Smith was the number one player there, so I played one of the greatest players in history. I learned quite a lot in a very short period of time!!!

Tennis is my life long passion. I was inspired to instruct when, after years of competitive play, my oldest daughter challenged me to teach her. This was an opening to further my passion and to help others learn. I took this challenge seriously and began training with the United States Professional Tennis Association to become a professional instructor.
Soon my schedule was filled and I am on the court every day of the week instructing students from absolute beginners to tournament level players. I continue to be a student of the game attending all USPTA, PTR, and Tennis Teacher's Institute educational forums held monthly, quarterly and yearly. I am Second VP of the California Division. I strive to connect with the students and patience is a natural part of my programs.

My private lessons are available in five formats: Skill Specific, Developmental, Strategic, Learn How to Practice More Efficiently, and the Aerobic Cardio Workout Lesson.

My specialty is taking a beginner along the path to an intermediate, then an advanced level player who understands the game, the rituals, the ethics and can have fun, and move to their desired level with fun and friends along the way.
