Juan Antonio Sala Ramos - Tennis and Padel Coach


Juan Antonio Sala Ramos, Spanish Tennis & Padel Coach with more than 15 years of coaching experience in Europe and Asia.

Throughout my career, I have coached and mentored numerous players, helping them achieve their full potential on and off the court. I don\\\’t consider only being a coach but also a mentor to my players, providing guidance and support throughout their tennis journeys.

I foster a strong player-coach relationship based on trust, communication, and mutual respect.
I\\\’m committed to the holistic development of the players, helping them become not just better tennis players but also well-rounded individuals.

I have a strong passion in Coach Education, being presenter at many International Conferences such as ITF World Coaches Conference , Shanghai Rolex Masters International Tennis Coaches and being ITF Tutor in Asia.
