Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

The class meets once a week on Fridays from 11am-1pm at Baker Field and is one of the most amazing, if not the best, physed class offered at Columbia. You get to meet people who play with different styles and spins, making doubles absolutely fun. As for Gaurav, he is really dedicated to improving his students' tennis skills by practicing useful drills with us like drop shots, which are good change-ups during a rally, and is willing to go out of his way in helping us with our game. He is also very understanding with absences and lateness/leaving early, but rewarded those who never missed class with a T-shirt in the end.

Super nice guy! He was an Indian national player and played in a number of Grand Slam events on the Pro level. Though a fairly big class (around 12 people) he will try his best to work on each individual's game. He's also the director of the Baker Field Tennis facility and so he can get you games with people of similar ability during the off-season.

Gaurav is the nicest guy. He's very lenient with coming late and leaving early because he knows Friday classes-even gyms- are annoying. I did improve somewhat, although not as much as I wanted too. I have honestly never looked forward to a class as I did to this class. It has instilled in me a greater love for tennis than I had before the semestor. I definitely suggest taking this class!
