Welcome, Venice Tennis Clinics!

Welcome, Venice Tennis Clinics!

Thank you, Venice Tennis Clinics, for joining Venice MainStreet as a Nonprofit Partner! Move your game to the next level with Venice Tennis Clinics through correct technique and fundamentals. Come and join for a day of fun at the tennis courts (Saturday and Sunday) for a free one-on-one Tennis Clinic. The instructor has many years of experience teaching people how to play tennis and become very competitive (including advanced players for tournament level). He has also spent thousands of hours of community service teaching people how to play tennis. Many people from Venice and visitors have already benefited from these clinics. 

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
I truly love the game. I have over 10 years of experience teaching people how to play tennis. This includes all aspects of tennis: tennis fundamentals, correct technique, strategy, tactics, shot selection, advanced skills, topspin, slice, net play, and so on. In order to move to the next level, one must master correct tennis technique for each stroke. I can show people how. I can also guarantee results based on previous experience/results. Able to work at any skill level (from beginner to advanced/competitive for tournament).

I have taught people how to become very competitive (including advanced players for tournament level). Some people have become advanced players with my coaching – in a relatively short period of time. I have also spent thousands of hours of community service teaching people how to play tennis. I’m an advanced competitive player myself (4.5+) with over 15 years of experience. I work with many people around the Venice area: excellent testimonials are available.

Welcome, Coppola Artistica!

Welcome, Coppola Artistica!

Thank you, Coppola Artistica, for joining Venice MainStreet as a Business Partner and welcome to West Venice Avenue! Coppola Artistica carries fine Italian ceramics imported from different regions of Italy. 

ABOUT US
It all started in my hometown, Sorrento, Italy. In 1968 at the age of 19, my mother took over a store in Piazza S. Antonino with the help of my grandparents, who were in the ceramic business before. She opened her first ceramic and souvenir store when Sorrento was an undiscovered place.

Now after almost 50 years in business, she has two stores becoming a landmark for painters from all over Italy who seek to sell their works of art in touristy Sorrento. She always loved her job and passed this love to her children.

Since 2001, she has helped us select the best made/painted-by-hand Italian pottery to import to the U.S.A. We have from the big lines of Vietri sul Mare (Amalfi coast) to the most fine lines of Deruta (Umbria) and Toscany, dealing with over 20 different painters from five different regions of Italy including Campania, Umbria, Toscana, Sicilia and Veneto.
