About this pro

My passion is tennis, particularly because it involves three things I value in life: exercise, growth, and self-reflection.

I am a former DI tennis player (University of New Mexico) and I have 5+ years of high performance coaching experience in Denmark and Colorado. I possess a Full Professional Tennis Registry Certification.

    Simon is the nicest and most down to earth coach I have ever had in any field I have been coached in. He really understands what it is you want from the lessons and doesn't waste time bullshitting and selling himself. If you want a coach who provides you with what you want and ends up being a friend of yours too, then Simon is your best choice. He is also super smart, which only makes the time spent with him more motivating.
