Ryan Chow – Head Professional
Contact: Headpro@leasidetennis.orgWe are excited to welcome back Ryan Chow as the Head Tennis Professional for the 2017 season (6th season).Ryan brings a wealth of experience improving the tennis skills of all ages and is excited to share over 10 years of coaching knowledge of the game with Leaside’s members. He holds a Club Professional 3 certification (the highest club certification in Canada). Ryan is always looking to improve his knowledge of on court and off court training to help develop a better athlete and tennis player. Ryan’s coaching aspirations began in high school gaining experience at various community and commercial clubs in the city. Over the years Ryan has worked with junior players starting at 4-5 years old and overseeing their development, implementing Tennis Canada’s Progressive Tennis Curriculum. Several of the players he worked with or was a hitter for achieved a top 10 ranking in Ontario in their age group. Ryan has worked with the TTA for the past 8 years, and in 2011-12 worked with the Ontario National Training Centre’s Under 8 and Under 9 program. In the fall of 2013 Ryan was part of a team of coaches representing Ontario at the Ace Cup tennis event helping Ontario’s best U12 players compete. Ryan has also travelled with players to ITF Junior Events around the world, and helped the players succeed and gain valuable ranking points/titles. Ryan has had the opportunity to coach abroad and has held the positions as Head Tennis Professional at Yellowknife Tennis Club and Assistant Tennis Professional for the Wanaka Tennis Club in New Zealand.

Ryan competed on a tennis scholarship in the US at Bloomsburg University. During college Ryan helped his team win a conference championships as well reach the final 16 at the NCAA National Championships, earning him the All-Conference Player Award in both singles and doubles. After college, Ryan travelled playing Professional Tennis on the Futures Circuit and was ranked on the ATP Tour. During this time he was ranked top 25 in Canada in the open singles rankings. Ryan’s playing experience has helped him relate and understand the process it takes for aspiring players and his goal is to keep the game fun, fresh, and meaningful to all regardless of level.

In 2017, Ryan expects to build on the successes of the last five seasons and will be looking to improve the coaching standards of LTC. In addition to many of last year’s programs, private individual and larger groups will also be offered. As well, there will be some brand new programs, adding more options for the long-term development of the beginner to competitive player. Feel free to email Ryan to talk about your tennis goals and to recharge your game this season!
