About Me

Hi, my name is Vanessa Bogenholm. I am a PTR Certified Adult and Junior Professional. I have won 6 Player of the Year awards in NorCal and have been in the top 10 of my age group nationally every year for the past 5 years. I will be playing in the National Senior Games in Birmingham this year qualifying by winning the singles and mixed doubles in the Nevada Senior Games. I'm currently teaching children of all ages from beginners through tournament players as well as teaching privates to adults of all levels. I have private courts to use in Cupertino or can come to a court near you if you have access to one. I'm the Head Varsity Coach at Homestead High School in Cupertino, boys and girls where both teams go to CCS every year and have a winning percentage of over 75%. I am also a certified personal trainer so fitness will always be a component of your lessons.

We work on fitness, strokes, game play. I believe in live balls so don't just feed balls to you, I actually hit with you.

Student Feedback

Vanessa has a truly amazing feel for the psychology of the game, of what makes you win points and lose points. That was just what I needed.

Dag W. - November 25, 2014

Vanessa is a stellar coach. Every lesson Vanessa devotes her full attention to your every move and provides fast, accurate, and actionable feedback that will constantly push yourself to improve your game. In just a couple of lessons, I could feel a huge difference in my posture, balance, and ground strokes. I highly recommend Vanessa to players of any level that are committed to improving their game.

Vanessa is a great coach. I love that she is firm and no nonsense. Always on time but also flexible. My kids really enjoy learning from Vanessa!

Tina H. - February 2, 2016

Ms. Vanessa is a wonderful teacher who knows the tricks of Tennis but most importantly how to teach to kids. Personally, my 8-year old enjoyed each and every class and learned new skills in each session. We strongly recommend her as a wonderful teacher!

Karthik K. - January 5, 2016

She was a great teacher and helped me relearn the game since I had not played in a very long time. I would recommend her to anyone looking to learn or improve their game. She was friendly and accesible.

Lila H. - February 2, 2016

Very solid lesson, would like to continue!

Mariya G. - February 4, 2016

Vanessa is amazing! Our son loves her classes and she manages to get him involved and interested even on 'bad kid days'.
I can't wait for our second kid to be old enough to start his lessons!

I totally recommend Vanessa!
