Andre Iriarte has been playing tennis since he was 11 years old. Andre's father, a former Davis Cup player for Bolivia/Chile, helped him developed his tennis game. 

 

Andre enjoys competition and had an outstanding junior tennis career, where he was ranked #1 in the Mid Atlantic Section boys 14’s, 16’s, & 18’s in singles. During this same period, Andre also earned a national (USTA) singles rankings in B14 #25, B16 #5, and B18 #8 and earned a Mid-Atlantic Section ranking in doubles of B16 #4 and B18 #2. He also earned an International Tennis Federation (ITF) singles ranking of #201 and a doubles ranking #125 in the world.

 

After juniors, Andre received a full athletic scholarship to play tennis at North Carolina State. He played in the top 3 positions on the men's team all 4 years. By his senior year, he reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament and earned All-American status. Additionally, he had the opportunity to travel around the world to compete in high-level tournaments, such as the US Open Juniors, where he played against John Isner, a frequent top-10 player in the world. Andre graduated from N.C. State with a BS in Sports Management and minor in Communication.

To create an environment where every student, regardless of their athletic ability, may pursue excellence in tennis and in life.

During the last 18 years, Andre has worked at various clubs around the metro DC area and is very thankful to be able to bring his experiences with teaching and playing to Arlington Forest Club. These experiences gave Andre the knowledge and solid understanding of the game to develop players of all ages and abilities - from high performance juniors to adults or children who have never picked up a racquet and everyone in between.
