Who Is Adrin Himmelheber?

family1 (1)

While growing up, Adrin worked with the likes of George MacCall (U.S. Davis Cup Captain) and Pancho Gonzales (Former World #1, US Open Champion) on the Vegas Strip. Later as an accomplished junior, he worked extensively with Pat Dupre (Stanford All American, Wimbledon Semi-Finalist) along with attending Rick Macci and Nick Bolletierri Tennis Academy. Adrin received a scholarship to UNLV and played briefly on the tennis team after signing a record deal at 19 years old to pursue a music career. Adrin rekindled his passion for tennis after a few years, began competing again, and decided to turn pro.

He credits ATP Tour coach Sam Aparicio, his long-time coach, for helping him develop into a professional tennis player. In the summer of 2005,Adrin moved to Spain and was accepted by the Federacion Real de Madrid to pursue a professional tennis career. While in Spain, Adrin trained with world-class Spanish tennis coaches, including Feliciano Lopez Sr., as well as Francisco "Pato"Clavet. During that summer, he was a hitting/training partner to Nicholas Massu (2005 Olympic Gold Medalist Singles and Doubles) along with other high-world-ranked tennis players. After spending one of the most exciting and productive training summers of his life, Adrin was sidelined with a career-ending ACL knee injury. After almost 2 years of physical therapy, Adrin decided to pursue a full-time coaching career and has worked with players of all levels, including world-ranked professionals and Grand Slam semi-finalists. Adrin occasionally plays Pro-Ams and Prize money invitationals but has focused on sharing his world-class experience with everyone he encounters on a tennis court. Adrin is an honored member of the United States Professional Tennis Association and is on the USPTA Nevada Board of Directors. He is also a certified professional 1 through the organization, which is in the top 10 percentile of all members. In 2013 Adrin received the USPTA Star Award for Intermountain Division. The award reflects outstanding hard work with the community and for being a positive ambassador of the game.

What Clients Say

Being a professional tennis player requires dedication, talent, and hard work. Along the way, you place an extraordinary team around you. Sometimes this team is stationary – an at home group of trainers and coaches working on your game. While playing on the road, it is necessary to have the highest quality coach available to tinker with your game or watch a match to see if you are reaching your goals. I worked with Adrin while playing a tournament in Las Vegas. I discovered that Adrin had a solid work ethic and knowledge for the science of the game. I was fortunate enough to see him interact with children and watch his innate ability to teach the young ones how to play the game. I learned that as a former player, Adrin gathered amazing professional resources to build his program in Las Vegas – teaching every age group the real meaning of playing the sport of tennis for a lifetime.

WTA Tour World Ranked Top 20

I have known Adrin for about ten years but only in the past few years have I gotten to know who he really is as a person. If I had to describe Adrin in a word I would choose the word 'motivator.' Whether he was my doubles partner, my coach, or even sometimes my opponent I always felt inspired to do my best and have fun. I learned that while we traveled and played on tour together for the second half of the 2006 season. In the ensuing years we have remained very close friends and Adrin still seems to make time to get out on the court and help me with my game. Adrin is a person who enjoys life, learning new things, and most of all sharing his thoughts and ideas with whoever will take the time to listen.

I have been working with Adrin for about 10 months now and he has done some great things, not only for my tennis game but also in my life. He has truly performed miracles with my confidence that lead to a sectional title and beating some top guys in the country. Adrin has helped create many college opportunities for me, for which I am excited. Adrin is not only a great coach, but a mentor as well. He always keeps his word. If he says he is going to do something, it gets done. Adrin brings it every day. If he doesn't have an answer, he will find it. I am truly blessed to have Adrin in my life as a coach, a friend, and a mentor.

Scott Wilson

I have been a student of Adrin's for seven years. Though Adrin is an excellent tennis player and coach, he is also a great friend. Even when I'm struggling to learn a concept in tennis, he lifts my head up and makes me want to do my best. Adrin, in my mind, makes me think of a determined, positive, and dedicated person who wants the best for his students. I am so lucky, and very blessed, to be a part of Adrin's life on the courts.
