About Mark

Hi, my name is Mark. I've been coaching for over 13 years teaching all ages, from beginners to the most advanced players; I enjoy working with anyone who can put a racquet in their hand. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, my love for the game, started at the age of five playing with my father on the public courts of my hometown in Kennewick, Washington. I am currently in my third year as a member of the coaching staff for Murillo Competitive Advantage tennis academy in downtown San Antonio at the McFarlin Tennis Center. After playing NCAA tennis at Pacific Lutheran University and becoming a USPTA certified professional, I gained professional tennis teaching/coaching experience in cities all over the world. From serving beginners in grass-roots USTA tennis programs, to tennis enthusiasts at world-class resorts in Mexico, California, and Guam, to experienced players at the international level, I have extensive experience teaching the fundamentals to players of all levels. Specifically, I was formerly elected Guam national tennis coach for the 2007 Pacific Games in Apia, Samoa, and as a part of Guam National Tennis Federation was a member and co-founding contributor of the Tennis Academy of Guam.

Teaching Style & Experience

Students can expect FUN, FITNESS, and KNOWLEDGE and anticipate getting a solid workout hitting lots of tennis balls. At all levels I emphasize isolating contact and balance with movement. I focus on fundamentals up front that carry over into live hitting scenarios. I enjoy utilizing game-based drills using scoring and targets as motivation for all lessons using a series of progressions, as needed. I believe all students of the game will build confidence and learn how to correct their own mistakes over the course of their development.
