Welcome to MS Tennis Academy in Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Great results don’t just happen,
they happen because you make them happen!

Why should you train with MS Tennis Academy:


A huge part of my coaching is not just teaching skills, but acting as a mentor, which means helping you figure out what you need to do to succeed, making sure you’re improving mentally and emotionally as well as physically, and supporting you through good and tough times alike.

A reality check

One of the most important things that I as a coach can give you is a reality check, by giving you an honest assessment of your potential. Even if you don’t intend to become a competitive player,
I can still help you to set goals for your game that are not only achievable, but that will push you.


I can help your tennis game improve much faster than would be possible on your own, by not only spot flaws in your playing, but mainly by giving you specific instructions on how to fix them. If you’re self-taught, this task becomes much harder as, even when you can identify your areas of weakness.


I can be an important inspirational force for my players, as I have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share, and the personal connection between me and players makes that sense of inspiration stronger.


Many hands make light work. Together we will not only reach your tennis goals but we will also enjoy the time by doing that.


I will also teach you strategy, which can be one of the hardest parts of the game for amateur players to pick up on their own. I will identify your playing style and lay out the strategies that can help you defeat your opponents.

I visited the Westin in Playa Conchal, Guanacaste Costa Rica in November. I looked for a tennis pro and Matus was easy to find. He was easy to contact via phone and email. He was easy to schedule with and I got the day and time I wanted. He was easy to work with and was happy to do all the skills I wanted to work on. He also had great suggestions for fun variations on what could have otherwise been boring drills. Lastly, he has great endurance as a hitting partner. I wanted to play for three hours and of course as a tourist I couldn't handle more than two. He barely broke a sweat which was really inspiring! I would give him six stars if I could.

Amazing Coach, Great Experience! When I moved to the area I just stopped playing tennis because I was doubtful that I could find the type of instruction I was used to in the City of Chicago. Coach Matt has changed all of that! My three friends and I take weekly lessons, and we are having a blast. Thanks, Coach Matt, not only for making us better tennis players, but also for teaching us how to HAVE SO MUCH FUN during the classes as well. Super healthy fun, and I love it!

Great Tennis Experience for Kids - Matt is so great with both of my boys ages 7 & 9. He assessed them quickly in one free lesson and has easily progressed them to more challenging levels of play with appropriate peers. We’ve been playing with Matt at Conchal since we moved here in October and we’re so glad he’s a part of our week. The boys really look forward to their clinics and lessons!

Great tennis lessons - Matis is a great tennis coach. I'm playing better than I ever thought possible and he makes it fun through games he plays with us. He has helped me improve my strokes by keying in on simple reminders. He is very positive and enthusiastic but also serious enough to keep us learning. He is great for regular lessons and would also be great for a one-off lesson while on vacation.

Great instructor, awesome for the kids too! Matus is great to work with, really got my game back in shape. My kids do lessons with him as well, and they have a blast, always asking when they can go again. Even got my wife to start playing. He's patient with all of us, and I'm playing better than ever. Great workout as well
