Shai's interest in tennis was piqued at the age of 11, and his passion for the sport has only grown since then.

He has achieved professional status and has competed against some of the world's most exceptional players.

With over 24 years of experience teaching, Shai has taught tennis and competed in tournaments in both

the United States and Israel.

His exceptional skills have earned him certification from the Israeli Institute for Tennis and PTR as an outstanding tennis player. He is equally adept at coaching all levels of players,

from those who are just beginning to those who are advanced tournament players.


Shai's love for Japanese culture has led him to make Japan his home. He noticed a shortage of professional and enjoyable tennis centers in Tokyo, so he created the JINJI TENNIS CENTER to fulfill his dream of providing tennis training for people of all ages and skill levels.

With Shai and his team at the helm, beginners and advanced players alike can improve their game.

The center offers comprehensive training programs for players of all levels who aspire to compete in the ATP circuit in the future.
