    Garden State Tennis Center is a great place to train. It's in Edison, NJ. I train there and the pros are extremely talented and teach at an extremely high level. Here's the website:

    John Costanzo who runs the place by far has the most experience. He's developed over 500 ranked USTA juniors. My coach is Andrew Sharnov. He was the 2005 NJ Singles State Champ and 2010 NCAA Div II Champ. How well do you play? Here's a link to all the pros that work there so you can decide for yourself.

    GardenStateTennis is your best bet but it is a serious hike for you. You can talk to William at Fair Lawn RC - he has a clinic on Thursdays. There is something going on in Haworth and Maywood TCs. Also - Courtsense in Bogota.

    I feel Edison is a bit too far away so I'm thinking maywood or tenafly

    klu, how do you know about Garden State Tennis? You seem as if you know a lot about the training facilities around NJ.

    Here is the info on Miguel Perez, tennis coach...

    As you know Miguel Perez is trying to start either teaching tennis at any level, and
    specially to work with advanced players.
    I don't need to tell you how good he is.
    Any people that you can refer to him it is greatly appreciated.
    Before his College years he played with
    some top ATP Tour players - Bjorkman, Berasategui, Corretja,
    and he played in the NCAA for University of Louisiana-Monroe during his career.
    This is all his information.

    ^ In that case why not check out Vivek Subramanian. Pro at Garden State Tennis, 4 year starter at University of Miami, 2004 NJ State Champ and coach of current top WTA player Tamira Paszek.

    Wow I played Vivek in a mens open final in Old Bridge NJ when he was about 14, he kicked my butt too! Very nice kid, good to see he's coaching the talented Austrian.
