Tennis Professional | Adult Program Coordinator | USPTA
Nicolas (Nico) was Born in Bogota, Colombia, where he fell in love with tennis at a young age—playing competitively in Colombia before pursuing a college tennis career in the United States.
Nico played four years at Belhaven University—representing the Blazers as their #1 singles and #1 doubles player. After receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, he became Belhaven’s Assistant Tennis Coach for two years. During this time, he earned his Masters in Business Administration. Nico also spent time coaching High Performance players at the Mississippi Tennis Academy, where he was mentored by Julio Godreau.
After taking a quick hiatus to work in marketing, Nico returned to coaching—as he realized his passion for the game inspires him to be out on the courts every single day.
Nico is a USPTA certified professional and more recently has coached at FIT Tennis Academy in South Florida. Nico currently lives in Miami with his wife Lindsey and dog Olly. In his free time, he enjoys running—recently completing two marathons—and watching his beloved FC Barcelona.
As the FM Tennis Adult Program Coordinator, Nico will happily answer any questions you have in regard to our Adult Programs—in English or Spanish—and help find the right program for you!
