My name is Mari Mahoni, I am 25 years old and I started playing tennis when I was 6 years old. I grew up on the tennis courts, playing every day and helping with everything that is needed to be done in the club.
I was playing semi-professional tennis until the age of 18. My best ranking in Estonia has been number 2 and I have won 2 times Estonian Championships. I have also represented Estonia in the European Championships U16.
As a coach, I have worked across Estonia in different Academies, which one of them was the biggest Tennis Academy in the country. I have also been working abroad with a tournament player in Global Agent Tennis Academy in Spain. While I was working as an assistant coach of a professional player in Eddie Herr and Orange Bowl tournament, I also worked with Dave Rineberg in his Tennis Academy in the United States.
For the past two years, I have had a great opportunity to be a private coach for a U12 player in Switzerland. Currently, I am collaborating with Clelia as I am working with her in the tennis Club Carona. As part of my everyday job I manage the kids’ tennis school, give private lessons, organize camps for tournament players and also for adults. I love coaching, it’s a big passion of mine, which is only growing more and more despite the everyday challenges that I am facing.
