Rob Korich - Tennis Pro
I have played tennis since I was 5 years old. I grew up in the California Bay Area playing out of Moraga Country Club until moving to Bend, Oregon for high school. Highlights from high school were winning the state team finals and going undefeated freshman year. I played college tennis in California at Diablo Valley College and Saint Mary’s College. My best memories from college were getting 2nd place at the ITA Regionals for Doubles and qualifying for ITA Nationals. After college I traveled all around California competing in Men’s Open Singles and Mixed Open Doubles. In 2009 I finished #1 in USTA Norcal for Mixed Open Doubles and received player of the year.
I have previously instructed at Bend Golf and Country Club, Moraga Country Club, Sand Point Country Club, and Harbor Square Athletic Club. I look forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with you! Serve it up!
