One of San Diego's most decorated players. In the late 1970s, Walter ranked number one in the country as a junior ahead of names like John McEnroe before playing several years on the Association of Tennis Professionals world tour.
For 30 years Walter has been teaching and coaching in San Diego through his clinics and one-on-one sessions.. Walter coaches tennis at St. Augustine High School.
Chia's tennis life started at the age of 12. He took numerous junior clinics and private lessons. Chia played four seasons of high school varsity tennis and a season at Southwestern College.
At the age of 20, while attending college, I had a part time job assisting the junior clinics at South Western College. This job was my part time college job. In 2004, I became a certified pro and I have been instructing ever since at ECCTA
I started playing tennis when I was 7 at ECCTA and now at 19 I'm playing on the pro tour while I both train and coach at ECCTA. I began coaching at 18, helping to feed balls during Coach chias live-ball adult clinic. I now do privates, clinics for kids and run camps. I love to coach and it also helps me to play professionally.
