For every one hour Private Lessons, clients receive one hour free on the ball machine which can be scheduled based on availability within a week of the lesson. The ball machine is a great tool which can be used to have a great workout as well as to improve any new techniques which have been learned. The fact that students can practice what they have been taught is truly what's unique about Chris' program here at First Service Tennis.


When taking lessons with Head Pro Christopher Karen, students are provided time to practice their strokes. Practice time is included in the cost of the lesson. My students grow because they practice.

The Facility

Located just off of the Pacific Coast Highway at Eaves by Avalon in sunny Seal Beach, the facility includes a Pro Shop as well as four beautiful tennis courts. It truly is a facility to behold.

The community is very friendly, warm and clean and the environment is calm and quiet. In short, it is the perfect atmosphere for tennis regardless of the time of year or hour of the day. Lessons are available between 7 am and 10 pm.

Every player is different. Chris' goal is to bring out the best in each individual while keeping the learning environment fun and exciting. Chris believes that tennis is truly a sport for a lifetime.  Clients have varied in age from 2 years old to 95 years young.

"Was only in Seal Beach for a 24 hour span back in late April but since I was busy with work all day I didn't think I would be able to squeeze in any physical activity. Chris proved me wrong though as he was very accommodating and agreed to give me a late evening tennis lesson and workout. Had been awhile since I picked up a racket but within 30 minutes with Chris' instruction I was right back into the swing of things. He has a great instructive approach letting me know what I was doing well and what I could improve on. Definitely recommend checking him out to anyone living or visiting in and around Seal Beach. Will be back for a rematch for sure!"
