Our coaches are the key to the success of our players, and we are proud to have some of the best and most experienced in the industry. Under the leadership of academy director Wolfgang Thiem and head coach Pascal Brunner, we work hard to develop not only excellent tennis players, but also successful individuals. With their years of experience and international know-how, as well as an educational philosophy based on work ethic, talent, and a perfect environment, we have created a unique destination for goal-oriented and motivated young people.
About the Academy
The dream of every tennis player is to become Number 1 one day and win a Grand Slam title. Talent and work ethic are essential, but so is the perfect environment. I believe that with the Burgenland Tennis Academy we have created a unique place for focused, motivated young athletes.
The path to becoming a professional tennis player is difficult and long, but I am convinced that everyone who completes their training at the Burgenland Tennis Academy will be successful in their life – whether on the court or in their professional and private life.
Our training philosophy does not just forge excellent tennis players, but also successful personalities.
As head coach, former Austrian champion and ATP Top 400 player Pascal Brunner, is responsible for training the talents at the Tennis Academy Burgenland.
With his years of experience and international know-how, he expands the coaching staff in Oberpullendorf.
Bernd Solga serves as the vital link between Burgenland, our employees and players. For parents, he is the main contact person regarding training contracts and organizational issues. Besides his administrative role, he is passionately committed as an academy trainer to promote our young talents. With his expertise and passion, he strengthens the foundation of our academy.
