Matjaz Pogacnik - Tennis Coach


Matjaz Pogacnik

I’m Matjaž Pogačnik, 46 years old, and I have a deep passion for tennis. I started my journey as a professional tennis player and reached my highest ATP ranking at 1050. In 2002, I transitioned into coaching, dedicating my knowledge and passion to nurturing young tennis talents. One of the most fulfilling aspects of my coaching journey is the opportunity to manage the tennis courts at Camp Sobec, a role I’ve held since 2011. What makes this experience even more special is that I share this responsibility with my parents. Together, we ensure the tennis facilities at the camp are maintained to the highest standards. This not only provides an optimal training environment but also fosters a sense of community among dedicated tennis enthusiasts.
