Saul Toniolo - Tennis Coach

Canary Islands

Saul Toniolo – Tennis Coach
I grew up in a tennis club run by my family, where my father worked as the main tennis teacher, collaborating with the Italian Tennis Federation and with internationally recognised coaches.

My passion for tennis started very early. I have been involved in competitive activities since I was a child, arriving among the first players in Italy at youth level and later reaching semi-professional level.

Tennis has always been a big part of my life and I started teaching very young in addition to studying.
I have also trained in the best tennis institutes to deepen my knowledge.  I have been lucky enough to collaborate with international level coaches and learn a lot from them.

Dal 2000 ho iniziato la mia attività di allenatore di tennis. Ho iniziato con la scuola tennis del Circolo della Stampa Sporting di Torino (club ospitante la Finale Nitto master) dove ho giocato per molti anni nella squadra agonistica, e attualmente mantengo buoni rapporti.

Negli anni ho gestito e avviato alcune piccole scuole tennis nel nord Italia fino al 2014

Dal 2015 in poi mi sono trasferito a Tenerife (Isole Canarie) dove come libero professionista ho lavorato nei club e alberghi più prestigiosi dando anche lezioni private a gruppi di adulti e bambini di ogni età e livello di gioco

I can declare how Saul Toniolo was part of my team from 2010 to 2015, standing out for his human and technical characteristics, being highly qualified, suitable for any type of situation, from adult courses to competitive level activities. A former competitive player, very knowledgeable on a theoretical level, he knows how to understand the characteristics of this sport tactically and strategically.

In the 4 years as manager in the most prestigious hotel in Tenerife I can say that Saul Toniolo is the master excellent in his approach with customers, empathy, and he is a great motivator. Suitable for all types of court situations, from beginner children to more advanced level players. I can confirm that over the years I have received a lot of positive feedback about Saul while staying here.

I cannot exaggerate how my all round tennis game has improved since I have had coaching from Saul Toniolo. I live in Ireland but travel to Tenerife every few months for 1-2 weeks of coaching. Saul is technically very skilled but also has a great balance of patience and strong encouragement, which gives me confidence to embrace his teaching. My ground strokes, slice, drop shot, volley, serve, court positioning have all improved greatly under his direction. We also have fun playing points but with a keen competitive spirit. Saul is a very genuine person and sincerely wants you to do well and invests so much in you to gain that improvement. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Saul who is an exceptional tennis teacher and I am already planning my tennis training trip with him in early 2024.
