THANK YOU to all our summer program attendees!!!!!

Valued Silicon Valley Tennis summer program community,

Today we want to take the time to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you attendees, moms, dads, grandmas, nannys, etc. and everyone else who was involved in our summer program. Our summer programs are what make our Silicon Valley Tennis academy truly special, as we work intensely and often with special guest coaches – just like we did this summer!

Edgar from Costa Rice, who is still ranked #322 in the world and used to be the sparring partner of Wayne Ferreira and Thomas, who used to the sparring partner of Juan Martín del Potro were this years special guest coaches. They had great tipps and tricks and shared valuable inside knowledge with us from many many years of working and playing with Pro’s.

But without our hard working, motivated community this experience would have not been as valuable as it was. All coaches were very impressed with the level of motivation, commitment and engagement each and every one of you should every day! Thank you all for that and we look forward to having you back with us to continue improving and learning!

Francisco and the entire Silicon Valley Tennis coaches staff
