I have been involved in strength & fitness and tennis coaching since 2005 so this has given me a wealth of experience on which I can draw on when working with clients. I have outlined below some of my most recent roles.
2015-Present: Head Coach & Tennis Director, Polisportiva Valpellice Tennis
Tennis Director of a small club near Turin. Starting from almost zero I now have almost 60 members (children and adults) coming to learn and play. We have 6 teams for club competitions and several tennis enthusiasts who play tournaments.
13.02.01 – 14.12.01: Head Strength & Conditioning Coach and Assistant Tennis Coach, Bob Brett Tennis Academy
Fitness and Tennis coach, followed many juniors PRO (ITF players full timers in the Academy – and others top 100 ITF from all over the world) including occasional personal treatment as fitness coach and/or masseur to top 100 ATP players coming to the Academy to practice. Here the most important work was made with Helene Pellicano (European Champion Under 14 and Tennis Europe No.1)
11.10.01-13.03.01: Head Strength & Conditioning Coach Assistant in Tennis and Hitting Partner, Appino Tennis Academy, Tennis Talents Training Centre
Fitness Coach & Assistant tennis coach followed ATP player Matteo Civarolo (900), WTA Valentine Confalonieri (401), top Italian 14 and under Luca Prevosto. Also some foreign players like Andjela Sebrek, Kristina Novak and many others
09.09.01-12.06.01: Head Coach and General Manager, Circolo Tennis Pinerolo
This club asked me to make tennis start again after a bit of a ‘dark period’. Results have been very impressive after a couple of years of work, with over 100 people (children and adults) playing and practicing in lessons or small groups training.
“I had the pleasure in meeting Luca Ottino while I attended the Bob Brett, Tennis Academy in San Remo, Italy. I had a good impression after first meeting Luca. He was full of positive energy and drive. He is also very easy-going and a wonderful person to talk to. Luca possesses great knowledge in what he does and knows how to bring it out in people. Everything is explained very well and always backed up by great examples. Another superb trait about him is that he always takes part in the training process and shows what needs to be done himself. The experience of working alongside him was one of the best I had come across. I would like to recommend this individual as a highly skilled professional and disciplined worker who is very passionate about what he does and always strives to become better in every aspect of his life. It would be a big asset to have him working in any team or business. He will only bring good things and plenty of success.”
