About Pro Tennis Coaches

The Leong Tennis Academy was established to be a training ground to train and develop talented juniors of all ages. LTA has created its mission on the idea that it is determined to develop players to their fullest potential on and off the court. The academy members are a family with a goal of striving for excellence and the desire to improve each day with the support of one another. LTA is committed to developing each player’s attitude, strong work ethic and group compatibility in this unique sport of tennis. It is devoted to an environment that fosters the individual development of each player as student-athletes and due to the modest size of the academy there is an opportunity for participants to understand the concept of a great player and coach relationship.

The COACHES:

Chris and Angela Leong, founders of LTA, have been a team in the tennis world for 27 years. Their tennis coaching combined boasts over 54 years of experience. Chris and Angela have coached and trained top sectional and nationally ranked juniors, top collegiate players and former and current touring professionals. Angela was a top ranked sectional and national junior from Hawaii and received a full-scholarship playing Division I competition at the #1 and #2 spot in singles and #1 doubles spot for Loyola Marymount University. Chris was a top ranked junior in Hawaii who also competed nationally and was a former top 20 nationally ranked college player, in both singles and doubles at the University of Southern Colorado. Both share a passion for teaching, mentoring and guiding juniors and enjoy passing on their enthusiasm of the game to them. They are dedicated to their players and are committed to providing the best of themselves to juniors who are devoted to the game.
