Teaching Professional

Micah Matthews

Micah was born into tennis. Her dad, Ken de Koning, coached several top professional players including world #2 doubles, #7 singles, and coached The Venezuelan Davis Cup Team. He taught her the sacrifices and work ethic needed in order to make a great champion.

Aspiring to be like her dad, Micah started playing tennis at age 3. She was a top- ranked super championship junior player in Texas and signed with Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (DI) where she captained the team. During her college playing, she got injured and vowed to never pick up a tennis racket again.

Eighteen years later, married with four kids, she picked up her racket, not to compete, but to teach, and fell in love with coaching. She acquired her USPTA Professional certification and has a passion to teach people a love for the sport, technique to play beautifully, strategies to play intelligently, and most importantly how to use tennis as a tool towards character building in life.
