Hichem Yacoubi

Tennis Coach

I have been in the tennis industry for more than18 years. I started as a Coach in the most prestigious tennis club in Tunisia (Tennis Club La Marsa), than I was honoured to join the Tunisian Tennis Federation as a National Team Coach. I had the opportunity to join The Qatar Tennis Federation where I had to work in a multicultural environment. In 2020 I decided to found the first private tennis academy in tunisia along side with a Padel Club. Today I am in Calgary with Aforza Academy looking forward to coaching and evolving here.
