“Trevor is one of the finest tennis coaches Santa Barbara has to offer. First, he’s an excellent college-level player who knows both technique and strategy as well as anyone I’ve seen. Second, he transmits that knowledge in a confident, low-key, pleasant manner that most kids appreciate and absorb. Third, he’s fun and encouraging to be around and work with so your daughter or son will want to stay engaged.

He has worked with my two boys off and on over the past four years. One is a ranked Southern California tournament player, the other is an athletic middle school recreational player, and Trevor has managed to connect with both and improve their games. He has the patience and personality to take on beginners, and he has the skill set, knowledge and toughness to develop middle school players into good high school and tournament-ready competitors. In a town blessed with many high level coaches and players, Trevor Thorpe stands out as one of the best.”

– Paul Newton, Harvard Varsity Tennis ’81

“Trevor is a good coach and he has helped me improve a lot. His lessons are always fun and I always look forward to his summer camp!”

– Lucian Prinz, 8th-Grader

“Trevor has coached both my sons since 2010. He is not only an excellent coach, but a mentor and a role model. I highly recommend him.”

– Beth Prinz, Mother of Two Tennis Players!
