FRANK BONTE
Frank is originally from Belgium (Bruges) and cites his mentors as major contributors to his success in the tennis world. Frank was fortunate to spend a significant amount of time with some of the top tennis stars in the world and really understands what it takes to play high level tennis.

Frank quickly realized that the mental side of the game is as important as any physical skill. To differentiate his teaching, he committed to training in Japan with one of the greatest leaders in the world of meditation- Shodo Harada Roshi. Frank strongly feels that meditation results in faster learning for skill development, self-confidence and balance.

Frank has had success with his students improvement and he has consistently coached the top players in Belgium in a various age groups. One of his proudest moments came from working with a players that became top 10 in Europe and eventually number 1 of the world under age 18. He has coached numerous division 1 collegiate athletes in the US as well.
