Director of Tennis, San Dieguito Tennis Club
ABOUT THE COACH
I started playing tennis at 8 years old. Playing competitively as a junior player, later competing for an NAIA program after my US Army enlistment.
As a player, have been ranked Nationally as high as #1 in USTA, USPTA and FMT in Men's 35's. Having won numerous Men's Open tournaments as well as Men's 35's Nationals events and captained the Mexican National team competing in the 2012 ITF World Championships. Most recently, in 2022 captained and played for the SDTC Men's 5.0 team to USTA Nationals in Scottsdale, AZ in the 18 & Over Division bringing home a Top 10 finish.
With over 30 years of on-court experience, my tennis teaching and coaching ranges from beginners to nationally ranked players. More importantly, as a coach I understand and connect with each one of my students to make them each a success. Focused on providing high quality instruction with a focus on the fundamentals: stroke production, footwork, balance, strategies and mental player development.
