Learn More about Valter Paiva

Hi, I’m Valter Paiva, Director and Founder of the Valter Paiva Tennis academy, USPTA Pro of the Year and 2 times Brazilian National Champion. I have over 25 years of professional tennis teaching experience, including 9 years abroad in Brazil.

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, juniors, high school, college players and adults in California and in Brazil . Competing as a tour professional was an exciting experience, but I’m most passionate about sharing the game of tennis with the next generation and all others who want to learn the game of tennis. All of my tennis camps, lessons, and Junior Academies are aimed at making tennis fun and exciting for a wide range of students. From children as young as 5 years old, to advanced players aspiring to improve their USTA rankings, high school  players, and college level players, there’s something for everyone at the Valter Paiva Tennis Academy.

Our Core Values

Tennis is a fun sport with benefits beyond the court. At the Valter Paiva Tennis Academy, we focus on not just the skills needed to play the game but the many values that can be learned in the process.

Our Parents and Players Say it Best

“I started attending Valter’s evening clinic and taking private lessons at Billie Jean King Tennis courts a couple months back and saw massive improvement in my game/play in a short timespan. Valter not only knows the game like the back of his hand, he knows how to tailor his instruction to the individual he works with. If there are certain aspects of your game you are looking to improve Valter comes up with a lesson plan to hone in on what you are aiming to improve. He is flexible with planning private lessons and is very responsive in general. Attending his evening clinics/my lessons are highlights of my week and give me something to look forward to.

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. I highly recommend contacting Valter if you want to have fun and improve your game regardless of your playing level.”

Dani B. • Los Alamitos

“We love Valter and all of the coaches we’ve met so far! My daughter decided that she wanted to play tennis shortly after she turned six years-old. We started with a few private lessons then she decided to do the tennis academy in the mornings over the summer. She loved it! I really like that they offer an after-school group practice during the school year too so they don’t lose what they’ve learned. The other kids she’s in group with are all so nice and encourage each other. It’s become a bit of a second home for us now. Valter is incredibly patient with the kids, especially in the private lessons. And the coaches who help run the larger groups are all awesome, super patient and make it really fun for everybody, regardless of your level of play. I highly recommended Valter Paiva Tennis Academy to anyone looking to have fun, learn tennis and/or improve your game.”

Nonnahs D. • Pasadena

We were referred to Valter Paiva Tennis Academy by several families from my daughter’s school, all of whom spoke very highly of the program and Coach Paiva. My daughter first attended a summer camp and absolutely loved it. All of the academy’s coaches were excellent and were awesome with kids. This month, my daughter started the after school program and not only is she learning the skills that form the foundation of tennis, but she has fun with Coach Valter and his professional staff. Coach Valter and the rest of his coaches are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about teaching the sport. They have an easy rapport with kids and adults, alike. I hope that this is the beginning of a lifetime of playing tennis for my daughter, but even if it’s not, she is having fun and is learning important lessons in sportsmanship. I would highly, highly recommend Valter Paiva Tennis Academy to any child or adult considering taking up tennis or continuing to refine their skills.”
