Pepe Pinto - Tennis Coach


I am a passionate coach, and entrepreneurial in spirit. Very much interested in education. Admittedly, my ideal court is a bit extra. According to most – my court “takes tennis too seriously.”

According to my court, we take tennis “exactly as it should be taken.”

In a sport where tradition prevails sacrosanct, my ideal court treats trainings like a deep conversation with one’s self.

In this after-Modern theme of instant gratification and derivatives of tennis, my ideal court is trying to follow craftmanship rather than trends, patient to the mastering of speed over power, sensation over thoughts and consistency overall— training out loud and under fire; holding forth a warrior like gesture to the world…

My ideal court does not care for careless displays of non-dramatic irony, my court dreams for the hero’s journey.
My ideal court—knows that tennis is a living culture—is at least certain that some things have predictive power.
I believe my ideal court needs to be built from inside out, and that cannot simply be found, but made, with bare hands. my sole aim will be to aim for the culture of my ideal court, where tennis is taken exactly as it should be taken, seriously.

‘Pepe is in constant cooperation with the organization around him. He tries to add fearlessness to his athletes on and off the court. While doing this, he uses valuable examples from life.’

- Helder Araujo – U14 National Team Captain for the Portuguese Tennis Federation.


‘When I worked with Pepe, I felt that I was dealing with a very good professional. He showed that he was able to work with any group. His style is quite impressive, he can communicate very well with both children and performance players. He shows many talents in teaching, communicating, organizing and he is very social. Those skills contributed for a smooth and pleasant environment inside the team. Pepe excelled at teaching players the rules, strategies of the game, physical condition on court, stroke techniques and is very good finding exercises to improve tennis specific skills. I believe that Pepe would be a great fit for a visionary tennis club, and will surprise you how quickly he can drive success to the team.

José Mota - Head Coach at Braga Tennis Club


‘I have worked for more than a year with Pepe. During that time, he made a great contribution to his athletes, planning loading periods meticulously. I have witnessed these processes closely; and I can say that he is a great asset.’

As soon as I started showing interest in Pratt, Pepe got to work. Within a day, he had contacted the school, received all the information I requested and scheduled a video call for me to speak with the coach. Not only has he been extremely efficient and professional during this process, but he has also been a great support. Even now that it's all over he continues to show support and concern for my path ahead. Pepe genuinely cares about his players, which can't be said for everyone. I am sure we will stay in touch for a long time and certainly Top College USA should take him into consideration if you are looking for an efficient transition in your new tennis experience

It was such a pleasure to work with Top College USA. The recruiter was very attentive and helpful during the process. He made me feel like I was a priority and tried always to meet my expectations. He made this recruiting process enjoyable, and I had a great time working with him. I’m excited about my future

Raquel Rodrigues - Tennis player - Louisiana Christian University


Throughout the process I felt the recruiter had my back. I was a priority, he provided me with options, and curated the colleges based on my needs. Would not have done this in any other way
