About Thiago

Hello my name is Thiago and I am a local Lebanon tennis coach with over 25 years of playing experience and over 16 years of teaching experience! I am also a USPTA & PTR Certified Tennis Professional.

I played junior tennis in Brazil and was ranked among the 100 best junior tennis players in my home country. I also earned a full tennis scholarship to play for 2 years at Seward County Community College in Liberal, Kansas and then transferred to Bethel University located in Tennessee finishing up my BA degree in Physical Education in 2008.

I was ranked in the top 20 in singles and doubles during my college career and my team’s ranked in the top 5 in the NAIA rankings. My team also had 3 straight appearances at nationals. After graduating from college, I then worked at several tennis facilities and was the Assistant Tennis Pro at Idle Hour Club in Georgia, Director of Tennis at The Westside Club in South Carolina, the Junior and Adult Tennis Coordinator at Midtown Athletic Club in Georgia as well as Student Assistant Men’s and Women’s Tennis Coach for Bethel University and I worked at several clinics as a special guest in Colombia, Brazil, Italy and around the United States. Every year I am invited to be part of a selected staff to coach alongside legends of the sport such as Rod Laver, Roy Emerson, John Newcombe and many others. I currently coach at Cumberland University in Tennessee and I am the Director of Tennis for a beautiful island in Maine during the summer months.

I teach tennis lessons in Lebanon at the Tommy Gray Tennis Complex (Cumberland University) but I am also willing to travel up to 5 miles.

Please contact me through my coach page and then I will contact you back within 24 hours to introduce myself, answer any questions and if you are interested, we’ll set-up your first tennis lesson or hitting session at a time and place that is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you and I look forward to the opportunity to be your Lebanon tennis coach. See you on the court!
