Mason grew up in Davis, California, and started playing tennis at the age of 10. After playing and competing at the University of San Francisco, he traveled on the pro tour, gained ATP points in doubles, and won a Futures Pro tournament. In addition to coaching at Rancho Valencia, Mason is the assistant coach for the men’s team at UC San Diego, now a division 1 program. His coaching experience also extends to the pro circuit, as coaches and travels with Artem Sitak, currently ranked #73 in the world on the ATP tour in doubles (and reached the quarterfinals of Wimbledon in 2018.)
Mason loves teaching players of all ages, and his strengths as a coach stand out in the small technical details of each stroke, as well as strategy and point development.
In addition to his incredible tennis career, Mason practices residential real estate in North County San Diego. He loves to golf, enjoys time with his 9-year-old daughter Leila, and has recently enjoyed learning more about astronomy.
