Meet Our Coaches

Matt Corry | Owner

Coach Corry grew up in the Philippines and at a very young age learned to love the game of tennis when he would ball-boy for 5 Pesos (.25 cents) per match. He played two years of high school tennis in Kentucky, after moving back to the U.S. at age 16 and earned a scholarship to play at the University of the Cumberlands. He spent two summers coaching players from 25+ countries at Saddlebrook (Harry Hopman Tennis Academy), which was the #2 tennis academy in the U.S. at the time. He also coached clinics in China with Michael Chang (former world #2). Coach Corry has 17 seasons as a head coach, working with both boys and girls teams, and over 23+ years as a private tennis coach.

Assistant Coaches

MC Tennis would not be possible without our amazing assistant coaches, who all bring significant and valuable experience to the players they coach. These coaches are an integral part of our year-round middle and high school clinics, community tennis nights and tournaments. During parks and recreation clinics - you will see them coaching older youth, adults or managing our junior coaches. 

Several of our assistant coaches also give private and small-group lessons.
