NEW TENNIS PROGRAMS
Meet the Koa Tennis Staff:
Marco, a USPTA certified Tennis instructor, takes great pride in sharing his passion for the sport with players of all ages in the Mid-Atlantic communities through Koa Tennis, a company which he runs and operates. On a mission to promote physical activity and sportsmanship values within the community, Koa Tennis provides professional grade tennis facilities, as well as a wide range of affordable and high-quality programs aimed at practitioners of all levels. Following a Bachelor’s of Science with a focus in Kinesiology & Sports Marketing / Management, Marco set out to deepen his studies and earn a Master’s degree in Sports Industry Management at Georgetown University. His professional experiences within the Tennis industry have been diverse, focusing on both the actual coaching and the business side. An extensive employment history allowed Marco to gain precious insights on the managerial and business areas of the industry. Previous experiences include working as an executive director at the Youth Impact Program and Program Manager at Junior Tennis Champions Center in College Park, Maryland. As a coach, Marco is passionate about interacting directly with tennis students and players: He has been a coach at institutions the likes of Flint Hill School (Oakton, VA), Holy Child School (Potomac, MD) and Chevy Chase Club (Chevy Chase, MD).
Lisa has been specializing in teaching tennis to young children since 1992. A college player with a degree from NYU Stern Business School, she left a career on Wall St when her children were born and began working with the original TennisKids program in Manhattan Beach, CA.  She was one of the company’s initial franchisees, expanding its operations to include over fifteen locations and serving well over 1000 children in suburban New Jersey. She later formed Viva Tennis, one of the largest and most popular youth tennis programs in the state. In 2010 she was highlighted by the USTA as a “National Tennis Mom.”  She strongly believes in a teaching environment based on positive reinforcement. Her goal, as a teacher of all ages, is to help students understand and develop a lifetime love of the game while having fun and staying healthy. ‘Miss Lisa’ and her husband have three wonderful children; all of who are exceptional tennis players and incredible young people.  They all started playing tennis at a very early age and their accomplishments include NCAA All-American titles, captains of their tennis teams and top national and international rankings as well as playing in the US Open Juniors.
Nim is new to the Koa Tennis staff. Nim went to Miami University (OH) where she received her undergraduate degree in Finance. Nim played on the varsity tennis team for four years at Miami University where she competed in both singles and doubles matches. After graduating, Nim became an assistant coach for the women’s tennis team. Nim recently graduated from Georgetown University with a Master of Professional Studies in Sports Industry Management. In 2017, Nim worked for Lagardere Sports as an associate. She worked in the Special Events department for the Citi Open tournament and oversaw executing Citi Open’s first ever week-long junior summer camp along with overseeing various other tennis clinics and special events before and during the tournament.
