Vinh Do

Vinh Do's career up to date includes an extensive track record of training young student-athletes to successfully compete in college programs, developing junior tennis programs in northern Virginia and earning awards for his contributions to the world of tennis.

Since 2001, graduates of his tennis programs have matriculated at various universities as student-athletes, including UVA, Cornell, Mason, MIT, University of Chicago, Colgate, and the United States Military Academy. In addition to being the full time Men's Assistant Coach at George Mason University, Vinh has also taught and mentored two current Div. I coaches as well as the International Tennis Federation's No. 5-ranked player in the world. Tournament play is also a strength for Do with his students having earned three Gold Balls and one Silver Ball at national championships.

In addition, he has been on the Coaches Commission (best youth coaches in Mid-Atlantic) since 2009 and was named the Mid-Atlantic Coach of the Year in 2007. Do has also had the distinction of serving as Team USA's Under-10 coach at the prestigious Smirkva Bowl, the world championship for that age classification.

In 2000 Do teamed up with Fairfax Racquet Club to create the leading junior tennis program in the area. His program had 200 students at the outset and had grown to over 800 students by the end of his time at FRC.

Never satisfied with his accomplishments, Do also founded the Thai Tennis Organization of America, The Asian Festival (Reston, VA), and a USTA Pro-Circuit event that was adopted by the WTA. He also has a 15-year history of generous volunteerism that includes the donation of an extensive number of private lessons to student-athletes from underserved communities each year.

As a private coach, Vinh maintains a two-year waitlist in the Northern Virginia area, and is in demand as a coach and clinician across the country.
