I was lucky enough to grow up in a family in which tennis was a big thing. Both my father and uncle played tennis from an early age, and they were quite successful as juniors at Regional level. Furthermore, my uncle became a tennis coach and has been since then. He actually runs his own tennis club in Palma. He soon taught me the importance of working hard, and I would always work hard because “hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work”. 

Apart from tennis, I like playing any kind of racquet sports (specially ping-pong), football (soccer) and basketball. I used to play golf as a kid until I was 10 years old but I found it quite boring compared to tennis. Also, I had the chance of getting introduced to pickleball at my last overseas position in the Caribbean. I like spending time in the gym as it’s been part of my life since I was in College in the U.S.

  • I spent the summer of 2022 working at the famous PBI resort, Bio Hotel Stanglwirt in Austria delivering high quality private and group lessons as well as performing clinics and adults & kids weekly camps. Jul – Sept 2022.
  • I was part of the coaching team training high performance ITF-level juniors at the renowned Vilas Tennis Academy in Palma de Mallorca, Feb 2021 – Jul 2021.

"Coach Nacho has helped me improve a lot in tennis. He watches carefully and tells me what to do to get better. He's always active and shows me how to play well and think in different match situations including moving on the court and footwork. Nacho is really good at explaining instructions, so I understand everything easily. I think everyone who wants to play better tennis should learn from Nacho."

Mr. Kjellman


"Working with Nacho as my tennis coach has been extremely helpful. In a short amount of time, his attention to detail, customized coaching methods, and great energy have not only sharpened my skills but also increased my confidence during games. He has a talent for making complicated skills easy to understand and practice, which has lead to clear progress in my playing. Nacho's commitment to improving my abilities was clear in every practice, piece of advice, and encouragement he gave, making him a key part of my progress in tennis. I couldn't have looked for a better coach to help me step up my game."

Ms. Annica

"The tennis staff at the Four Seasons Nevis was exceptional. Nacho, the head pro, was welcoming and encouraging. His staff, Jose and Luca, were also outstanding. I really enjoyed my private lessons and adult tennis clinics." From TRO



"The tennis professionals are excellent with high energy. The attention to detail and technique is unsurpassed. My coach, Nacho Salom, made many modifications and improvements in my game in a very short time and he is such a delight and intelligent person to learn with." From TRO



"I love playing tennis at the 4 seasons in Nevis. Exceptional instruction from Nacho over the last 4 months I visited to oversee renovation on my house in Nevis. He actually changed my one handed backhand for the better after years of lessons and clinics in New York and at other tennis camps. He pointed out a few things about my left shoulder turn and follow through that helped immensely. Very observant instructor." From TRO
