Hi, I’m Valter Paiva! Since my first tennis lesson as a kid in Brazil, I’ve been in love with tennis. I’ve had the privilege of teaching tennis to hundreds of kids in Long Beach, CA. Competing as a tour professional was an exciting experience, but I’m most passionate about sharing the game of tennis with the next generation. All of my tennis camps, lessons, and Junior Academy is aimed at making tennis fun and exciting for young children, starting around 5 years old, to juniors up to 13, and aspiring players entering high school.
