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.
