Regina Sertschnigg ---Regina Marta Portrait.jpg

Regina moved to Leysin in 2013 where she began her own tennis coaching business. Her love for tennis started at the age of 10 in her home country of Austria, where she played competitive junior tennis. Her junior career was followed by playing college tennis in the USA. Since gaining her first coaching qualification in 2006, she has coached all over the world including the USA, England, Scotland, the United Arab Emirates, Austria, and Switzerland.

Regina says, “I am very excited to team up with LAS summer and share my love and passion for tennis with young tennis players from around the world. Nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing kids having fun while improving their tennis, learning valuable life skills, and growing individually while being tested physically and mentally. Seeing their smiles will make my summer.”

Peak Tennis International will be collaborating this summer with tennis coach Ramon. Ramon is originally from Ponferrada, Spain but now lives in Châtel-Saint-Denis in Switzerland. He held a racket for the first time at age 8 and has been stuck to it ever since. With a competitive streak since the very beginning, Ramon managed to enter into the Spanish TOP 250 at age 17.

Ramon is often referred to as a tennis 'globetrotter' and we can see why.  He played college tennis in the USA, and played competitively in Norway, Germany, Italy, and Spain. He loved being part of a competitive team and developed important skills from that experience—hard work, teamwork, and sportsmanship—all things that he strives to instill in his students today. As a coach he has worked in countries all around the world, working with teams in Spain, Italy, Australia, Brazil, Norway, and Switzerland. Ramon is able to speak six different languages and holds coaching diplomas from Spain, the USA, and Switzerland. Ramon will bring to LAS summer his passion for the sport and he endeavours to share his experience with the campers visiting Leysin from all around the world.
