Steven R. Nash

Steven R. Nash is the President and Founder of the ​Steven Nash Tennis Academy, and a professional tennis ​player who grew up and lives in Northeast Park Hill, ​Denver, Colorado.


At age 15, inspired by Arthur Ashe and taught the basics ​by his older brother, he fell in love with the game and ​has trained and played ever since. In addition to playing ​tournaments in country clubs throughout Colorado, he ​played on the George Washington High School tennis ​team in Denver, and subsequently earned a full tennis ​scholarship to The University of Northern Colorado.


At the University of Northern Colorado he was the first ​freshman ever elected to play on the varsity tennis team. ​He was then recruited by Metropolitan State College in ​Denver and transferred to be the number one player on ​their varsity team, and the first African-American player ​to hold that distinction.


Accolades include, but are not limited to:


● Presently Open Tournament Player with multiple ​tournament wins at every level


● Collegiate state champion, Mesa College State ​Open


● NCTA II Participation in Kansas City


Over the past 35 years Mr. Nash has developed a ​precise and concise teaching style that provides ​consistent modeling and practice of excellent ​mechanics. By understanding the movement and ​science behind shot-making, players can continually ​improve their game.


A Master racket stringer, he tests and evaluates ​strings and rackets, adjusting and learning with each ​new innovation.
