Val Eren - Head Tennis Professional

Val Eren's tennis journey has been both unorthodox and inspiring, proving that tennis truly is for everyone. Val picked up a tennis racquet for the first time at the age of 30, after being introduced to the sport by his cousins, one of whom is a top-ranked player in the WTA at 150. Despite starting later in life, Val's background in hockey allowed him to adapt quickly to the sport.

His passion and commitment to the sport allowed him to reach a 5.0 OTA level in just a few short years. During that time, Val had the opportunity to learn from a number of world renowed coaches, including Nick Bollettieri at the IMG Academy and Gregg Le Sueur at OTI in Tampa. 

Under Le Sueur's guidance, Val learned all about utilizing video analysis to improve players' technique. This is a tool Val uses extensively in his private lessons to help his students achieve their best.

Val travels to the United States multiple times a year to coach with OTI for their technical clinics. He has become a respected member of the OTI community and has helped many players achieve their goals.

In addition to his extensive training, Val currently possesses a Club Professional 1 certification with Tennis Canada and is working towards completing his Club Professional 2 by the end of the 2023. Val's personal approach to coaching has made him a sought-after coach for players of all levels. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced player, Val's expertise and guidance will help you achieve your unique goals.
