Recent conversation overheard on the Iguana Lodge Tennis Court during a speed doubles tournament:
Bystander Q: “Who’s winning?”
A: “We’re all winning, ’cause we’re all playing tennis.” (…from our zen friend, Brad Mobley, who when not beating everyone else here on the Osa at tennis, brings solar energy to the Osa Peninsula.)
We have racquets and balls – no shoes required. LOL. We LOVE Tennis!
Iguana Lodge is pleased to announce a variety of tennis pros at our court during our upcoming season. Join us!
Michael Towne, Dan Dicke, and Harry Hamilton join Iguana Lodge’s awesome tennis extravaganza.
Michael will visit January through mid February. Dan will be here mid-February through mid-March, Harry lives in Nosara and is available for your group or private tennis experience – just let him know and he will join you for an excellent tennis adventure.
DAN DICKE: Dan comes from Gates Tennis Center in Denver. With over 3 decades of teaching experience and thousands of students in his wake, Dan brings a Pura Vida approach to his instruction. Using his passion for the game and love of people to nurture your joy of learning under an audience of macaws, monkeys and other amazing creatures in the jungle of the Osa is an experience you’re not likely to replicate.
MICHAEL TOWNE: Originally hailing from Richmond, Va., Michael was crowned Virginia State “All Prep.” in high school. He also played college tennis his freshman year at Hampden Sydney College. While out on court, Michael likes to focus on strategic configurations, thinking outside the box, and considering all angles of the court. He has a calming demeanor and a knack for targeting (and then correcting) the weaknesses in a player’s game. Michael also has a mediocre mid-range basketball jump shot and sub-par kickball skills (just don’t tell him that).
$30 an hour for private, $10 more for each additional person.
HARRY HAMILTON: Harry grew up in a tennis family in Roanoke. He started playing at age 2. Over time he has developed a unique approach to coaching tennis with a concentration on cultivating well-rounded athletes with good footwork, body awareness, and mindfulness. Over the past 16 years, he has had the chance to work with and learn from some of the world’s most talented coaches and players and to teach tennis in Florida, New York, Hawaii, California, Kenya and Costa Rica. Harry presently lives in Nosara. Read more about Harry here.Harry also does super cool tennis trips to Monaco, Kenya, etc… so check out Harry.
Bring your team, pro, friends and family for a week or two of focused tennis!
