ITA Coach of the Year 2015

"Meike is a breath of fresh air in the tennis industry. She is revolutionizing the way we think, teach, innovate and collaborate, making for a significantly better culture particularly in the area of women in coaching. She is the consummate professional who is extremely knowledgeable and you would be hard pressed to find a better person to align yourself with." - Sara Stone, Founder and CEO Women's Tennis Coaching Association

“Meike is a world-class tennis expert with a clear vision about what to accomplish in a lesson. I’ve been around tennis for 40 years as a former college player, former teaching pro, and now tennis parent. Yet I learn something new every time Meike gets on court with my kids. In addition to her tennis mastery, Meike’s energy, values, and humor inspire her students. Whether you are a beginner, an open-level player, or some where in between, it is easy to give Meike my highest recommendation.” Brad Bernthal, Colorado

"Meike has been such a great coach for my daughter. She is absolutely terrific. The best on court coach my daughter has ever had. She is an elite level coach and as a player accomplished so much in her life. But the best thing about Meike is she will work with all ages, all levels of ability, skillfully adjusting her approach to fit whoever she is working with on the court. My daughter took up tennis at age 12, very late for the competitive world, and now at 17 she has competed in over 400 Junior USTA matches. Throughout this journey, my daughter hit many highs and lows. Withstood many crushing defeats, slumps, induries and hard times, but one thing I can tell you - things always get brighter for her when she works with Meike. She loves all of her sessions with Meike. She gets so much out of them. Meike trains tennis holistically, fundamentals and rhythm, patience and process, mental and physical, fulfilling the inner spirit of the player. Meike is a mentor, a phenomenal on court coach, a valuable resource in handling the mental game, and someone that genuinely cares about people. If you work with Meike consistently, over a priod of time, and let the process unfold, you will achieve a new level of tennis in your game. Five stars and two thumbs up for Meike Babel." - Steve Mock, Littleton, Colorado

“Working with Meike was incredibly helpful and also incredibly fun! She helped me to prioritize the most important goal for me to start with (from a list of far too many) that really helped me focus my efforts, be successful and actually enjoy the process. Her deep listening without judgment and sense of humor made each coaching session both fun and productive. She not only helped me reach my goal but gave me the tools I needed to keep the momentum going to tackle the other goals on my list, one at a time!” - Heather Finn, San Francisco

"Meike is a superb instructor and motivator! I appreciate her ability to assess my physical and mental strengths and weaknesses as well as her dedication to helping me improve both. Meike's lessons are the perfect mixture of instruction, challenge, fun and entertainment." - Andrea Carey, Denver
