About Me

Hi, my name is Marko! I am originally from Croatia and I am the former Finalist of Croatian national championship in singles. I was ranked no. 1043 in ATP world tour doubles rankings. I was also ranked top 5 In Croatia under 12, 14, 16, and 18s singles rankings. I came to the USA 10 years ago to play NCAA D1 tennis. I played two years at Virginia Tech and two years at Belmont University. I played no. 2 singles and no. 1 doubles and was two years in a row selected to all conference first team. I also hold the Belmont University school record for number of doubles wins. I have been teaching tennis for the past 8 years, and I enjoy teaching players of all ages and skill levels.
I am a USPTA certified tennis professional.
I also teach Pickleball and I am PPR certified!
I teach private and group lessons. I also do cardio tennis, cardio pickleball, tennis socials, corporate team building intro to pickleball and/or tennis, tennis/pickleball bootcamps, etc. Please let me know what your interest is and I will tailor my lessons to your needs!

Student Feedback

Really helpful and friendly at the same time. Recommend him greatly. Great knowledge of the game!

Ced D. - December 13, 2015

Very nice young man. Seems to do well with children. Good instructor.

Marko explained & demonstrated with my grandsons (14 & 11) many techniques they previously hadn't been exposed too. Especially how to move their feet into position for their next shot. Also, leg & arm positions when returning a shot

Both grandsons really like Marko, & were singing his praises all the way home. Grandsons are anxious for their next lessons.

Grandsons had some lessons before, but nothing up to Marko's expertise.

Marko really helped both Boys with their serving techniques. Serving has been costing the Boys games & matches.

We highly recommend Marko. He has a very friendly manner, & talked to the Boys making the lesson more enjoyable. Also, Marko used techniques to encourage the Boys, such as, rallies to keep them excited.

Our boys enjoy lessons with Marko. They think that he is knowledgeable about the sport and gives helpful advice on ways to improve.
