Coaching times & fees

My journey in the world of tennis began at the age of 9 when I joined a group of enthusiastic kids. Over the course of two years, my dedication and passion for the sport earned me a spot in a smaller, more focused training group within a medium-sized club in Prague. As I continued to evolve my skills, at the age of 12, I made the pivotal transition to having a private performance coach who provided personalized guidance to help me refine my game. Alongside this coaching, I started regularly participating in matches, where I honed my competitive edge and continued to develop as a tennis player. Between the ages of 16 and 18, I reached an impressive milestone in my tennis journey by competing at the national level. This period of my tennis career marked a significant step forward in my development as a player. It provided me with invaluable exposure to high-level competition and an opportunity to test my skills against some of the best players in the country. This experience not only enhanced my tennis abilities but also deepened my passion for the sport, reinforcing my commitment to becoming a tennis and fitness coach who could share my expertise and enthusiasm with others.

In my free time, I have a deep love for adventure and the great outdoors. I find solace and excitement in hiking through rugged mountain trails, taking in the breathtaking views. On the other hand, I’m a thrill-seeker, often hitting the open road on my motorbike, relishing the freedom of each ride. Additionally, I enjoy the serenity of cycling, whether it’s a leisurely cruise through the city or an endurance challenge on scenic routes. These hobbies not only keep me physically active but also provide a sense of balance and fulfillment in my life.

My coaching journey begun during my first year at university, where I began to hone my skills as an instructor at local tennis school. In 2007, I took a significant step forward in my coaching career when I started leading group lessons tailored for children aged 6 to 10 years old. These early coaching experiences allowed me to develop not only my technical knowledge but also my ability to communicate and connect with young athletes.
