Leonardo Marando - Tennis Coach


Leonardo Marando
Leo Marando started playing tennis at the age 9. The work ethic on the courts combined with the desire to see others players succeed, prompted him to become a tennis coach. A Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) teaching certification holder since 2008, he has worked in several tennis centers in the Bay Area including the Monterey Tennis Center. Being a natural right hander player and a passionate enthusiast of the sport, he has trained as well to become ambidextrous at tennis, playing left handed, to better understand the needs of a wide array of players.


PTR instructor certification from 2008.

I've been working with Leo for almost two years, and he has taken me from complete novice to recreationally competitive. His love of the game, patience, and down-to-earth demeanor make our sessions fun, insightful, and always a great workout. I've sent many friends to him, and they have all signed up for regular coaching. He's a gem!

I had the pleasure of working with Leo, who truly exceeded all my expectations. From the moment I started training with him, it was evident that he possessed a rare combination of qualities that made him stand out in tennis coaching.
He approaches each session with a meticulous focus on technique, footwork, and strategy. His ability to break down complex movements and concepts into easy-to-understand lessons made it so much easier for me to grasp and apply the fundamentals of tennis. Under his guidance, my skills improved rapidly, and I felt more confident on the court than ever before. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced player, he adapts his teaching to help you reach your personal goals.
Whether you're looking to take your game to the next level or want to enjoy the sport more, he's the perfect coach to help you achieve your tennis goals. I feel incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with him, and I'm excited to continue my tennis journey under his guidance.

Leo has been great at helping me get better at tennis. He is always patient and reminds me of the mechanics / technique I should be using without stopping play and talking too much. I'd have no problems recommending him to someone wanting to learn tennis.
