PANCHO ALVARIÑO

Former national player, national tennis coach, member and captain of national teams of all categories, Pancho was captain of the Spanish Fed Cup team that won the competition for the first time with Arantxa Sánchez and Conchita Martínez in 1991.

Pancho is also a member of the expert committee of the I.T.F. (International Tennis Federation) and has been appointed by various agencies as the best coach throughout his career.

Cover after the Olympics of Barcelona 92, the Pancho Alvariño Tennis Academy, which would undoubtedly be one of the first Academies of the golden age of Spanish tennis. Marat Safín and his sister Dinara Safina were an example of those first students who began to emerge at the age of 13 to become numbers 1, as well as many other players who would reach their highest level such as Cristina Torrens, Gala León, Alex Calatrava and close of 300 players who passed through the Academy. It was a great time in which great figures of national tennis passed through their hands, but the incessant influx of large rackets forged the need to go one step further and create, along with Jose Altur, the TenisVal Academy.

TenisVal has been perhaps a unique center in international Tennis, without a doubt the number of TOP 100 formed, it would fill several pages: David Ferrer, Nikolai Davydenko, Igor Andreev, Ernests Gulbis, Pablo Andujar, Dani Gimeno, Timur Gabashvili, Yevgueny Donskoi, Taro Daniel, Ricardo Rodriguez, Ricardo Ojeda, Marc Giner, Carlos Taberner, Sara Errani, Ekaterina Makarova, Maria Kirilenko, Arancha Parra, Aljona Ostapenko, Silva Soler, Alisa Kleybanova, Anabel Medina, Mª José Martinez, Cristina Torrens, Gala León, Mª Emilia Salerni, Estrella Cabeza, Beatriz García, Paula García, Sara Sorribes or Paula Badosa are some of the most outstanding ... what has made TenisVal publish a book to summarize what has been his career for 18 years.

The new times, make tennis change, teaching evolves and that is why Pancho takes a new turn and founds PANCHO ALVARIÑO ACADEMY in the facilities of the Las Vegas Tennis Club of La Eliana (Valencia) Spain, where players are trained from the base to the competition.
