About Donny

Hi there my name is Donny and I am a fun, local Bradenton pickleball coach with over 15 years of playing experience and over 15 years of teaching experience! I have also been teaching as a USPTA Certified Tennis Professional for over 17 years which has included fun fitness training with players on the court and off the court. I currently own and operate Saab-Alvarez Tennis & Fitness Academy in Bradenton.

Originally from the New York City area, I was a professional personal trainer there and worked as a personal coach as well as for the New York Sport Times & National Tennis Center in Flushing Queens. I also have a BA degree in American Studies in Government from the State University of New York at Old Wesbury. I moved to Florida in 2009.

My passions are running and cycling in addition to teaching tennis and pickleball. So whatever your aspiration or skill level, I will find a way to improve your game and your life. Tennis and pickleball are a wonderful and exciting journey that is never ending. In addition, I truly believe in not overcharging for tennis lessons and pickleball lessons because I love teaching the great game of tennis/pickleball!

I am offering fun private pickleball lessons, semi-private pickleball lessons, group pickleball lessons and hitting only sessions for all ages (kids, teens, adults, seniors) and for all skill levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced). So whether you need to work on some specifics like your forehand, backhand, volley, serve, service return, overhead, drop shot (dink), approach shot, footwork, singles strategy or doubles strategy-I would be happy to help you with your game!

I teach pickleball lessons in the Bradenton area but I will also travel up to 5 miles to a pickleball court that is conveniently close to you.

Please contact me through my coach page and then I will contact you back within 24 hours to introduce myself, answer any questions and if you are interested, we’ll set-up your first pickleball lesson or hitting session at a time and place that is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you and to the opportunity to be your Bradenton pickleball coach out on the court!
