For several years now, Arjan Pondman is successful in training national top players of all age-categories.
As a tennis-player Arjan was especially at a national level very successful. At the age of 19 he had won many category 1 tournaments in the Netherlands, obtaining a top 50 position on the national ranking list. From 2000 up to and including 2008 he could be found in the top 50, with a highest ranking of the 27th place. As a level 1 player, both in the single and double, Arjan has mostly played tournaments and competitions at a national level.
His great passion for tennis and the drive to transfer his knowledge to the new generation, led Arjan to completely focus on being a full-time trainer. In 2004 he decided to follow the necessary KNLTB courses and in 2007, while already working for the Laurense Tennis Academy, he obtained his KNLTB-B diploma. Besides his full-time job as Head Coach TAA, Arjan is still active in the Dutch and German competitions as competitor.
