Matt Liverman

United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) 

Matt Liverman is our Tennis Director and Head Pro. 

Matt has been involved in tennis and a USPTA Professional for over 25 years. He has taught all over the United States (Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Utah, Arizona, Texas & Florida) and in the Caribbean (St. Kitts), teaching private lessons, group lessons and clinics, charity events, social mixers and team coaching. 


He has experience teaching beginners, intermediate and advanced players of all ages from pee-wee's to seniors. He considers himself a teacher first, a player second, so he has the ability to communicate and teach, not just feed balls.


Matt brings a new energy and enthusiasm to Courtside Tennis Club. Before coming to Courtside, Matt was involved in coaching and teaching at several gated communities and clubs in the Sarasota/Venice/ North Port areas.

Matt played three years of college volleyball and one year of college tennis at Eastern Illinois University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Graphic Design. 

Matt works closely with the club’s tennis teams and the Junior Program. He also offers private, semi-private, and group lessons, clinics and keeps the club calendar filled with round robins,

tournaments and barbecues on a regular basis.

Matt's goal at Courtside Tennis Club is continue to help Courtside be the place for tennis in Venice!
