Director of Tennis Hans Römer was born and raised in The Netherlands, where he graduated with a BA Degree in Phys. Ed. at the prestigious CIOS sport College. Playing and coaching tennis soon went hand-in-hand in a nation where tennis is the #2 sport! A personal invitation from legendary coach Vic Braden was a major reason to make his move to California, where he became actively involved with the USPTA as well.
In addition to being the only USPTA Master Professional in the State of Maine (7 in New England), Hans also earned his PTR Professional 5A rating and successfully completed the USTA High Performance Program. He has been Director of Tennis at esteemed clubs such as The Dunes Club, The Portland Country Club and the Monterey Bay Racquet Club, but was also active as Zonal Coach for USTA Southern and Northern California. As Executive Director for USPTA New England Hans takes a lot of pride in Continuing Education. Hosting, speaking and participating at seminars and conferences is part of his coaching DNA.
Traveling, surfing, snowshoeing and walking his yellow Labrador Kip is what Hans enjoys when he is not on the tennis court. Hans, his wife Kristin and Kip reside in the beautiful coastal town of Yarmouth, Maine.
