Fell in love with the sport of tennis at the age of 7 years old, and have been playing ever since. Soon after i had started playing competitive tennis and moved in to a high performance program at a local academy.

One summer day while hitting that yellow ball repeatedly against the training wall i was approached by the owner and head coach of the academy and was asked if i would be interested in helping him deliver a few group lessons. being 14 years old at a time and in need of a summer job i agreed and we had began working together

After 2 years of mentorship at the age of 16 i have decided to abandon my childhood dream of becoming an astronaut and went and got my first coaching certification and hadn’t looked back ever since
reaching 18 years old i started a full time military service as a combat engineer and a combat medic for 3 years.

Coming out of the military i immediately went back to coaching and have never left the courts since.
I love being a student of the game and all of it’s aspects and enjoy sharing my passion and inspire new players to pick up a racket and go play and compete

Off the court you will find me enjoying great food working out and living a healthy lifestyle…

Over the past six years, Lior has played an integral role in our family’s tennis journey, providing exceptional guidance and expertise that has significantly contributed to our growth in the sport. As a family, we have had the privilege of training under the tutelage of Lior at Kefar Sava Tennis Club. His dedication, expertise, and unwavering commitment to fostering talent have been nothing short of exceptional. Especially commendable is Lior's mentorship and coaching of my daughter in competitive tennis. Under his guidance, she not only honed her skills but achieved an outstanding milestone - TOP10 for 12-year-olds in the national ranking. In my opinion, this remarkable accomplishment is a testament to Lior's coaching abilities and passion for cultivating excellence in young athletes. Lior has an ability to tailor training methodologies to suit individual strengths, while also meticulously addressing areas that require improvement. His approach has not only elevated my daughter tennis proficiency but has instilled skills such as discipline, resilience, and sportsmanship.
