He has an extensive tennis background as a top player and coach. He was the No. 1 junior from South Africa before coming to the United States on a scholarship to play at Pepperdine University. Ross went on to also star at UC Santa Barbara.

He played No. 1 singles and doubles at UCSB and helped lead the Gauchos to the best season in school history with a sweet 16 finish at the NCAA Tournament.

After studying sports management and graduating, he played professional tennis and earned ATP points in both singles and doubles and also competed for nine seasons in the prestigious Bundesliga in Germany.

Ross then went on to coach as the interim head coach at UC Santa Barbara and as the associate head coach at Oregon. In addition, he also coached professionally on the WTA Tour, including guiding a former top 30 player in the world.

Currently, Ross is ranked No. 1 in the nation in the Men's 35 Singles Division and has won back-to-back National Hard Court Championships in singles.

In 2012, he represented Team USA as the No. 1 singles player in the World Championship. Ross has again been chosen to represent Team USA in 2013 and was named captain of the team by the United States Tennis Association.

loved the coaching, feedback, and encouragement

8/18/2016 - I wish there were more opportunities for singles matches. I understand why that's difficult, though, due to court space. I loved the coaching, feedback, and encouragement from all the coaches! Everyone was super helpful and nice. It was fun to work and play with all of them. I also really appreciated the adherence to the schedule each day. The drills and events were well-organized and started on time. I loved how efficiently the whole weekend was planned and run!

camp was extremely well organized

7/29/2015 - I thought the camp was extremely well organized and free flowing; the coaches were more than tennis-talented, they were personable which made the experience enjoyable. I'm talking about this camp to my tennis buds hoping to increase attendance from Corvallis in 2016. Congratulations on a job well done!

Love the dinner the first night

7/29/2015 - Love the dinner the first night. It was a good way to meet and get to know other campers. Need to offer this program in WA!

very grateful and highly inspired!

7/29/2015 - Ross and the coaching team were outstanding! There were so many great takeaways and I still craved more. Even when I felt as though my particular group did not have the same intensity as I did, which I shared that concern with Ricky. Ross and staff went into immediate action and accommodated my intensity by placing me in a situation where I felt that I was able to utilize my newly learned skills with higher level opponents/participants. The timeliness of their response and the way they accomplished this was truly a class act and a declaration of their amazing attention to detail of our experience! I'm very grateful and highly inspired to advance my tennis journey. I'm a full supporter/advocate of any clinic/camp that Ross is involved in. I'm also very interested in promoting/helping Nike to expand/create an adult camp in the Seattle area…assuming Ross Duncan is the director. Ricky, Steven, Alex and Ross’ passion for tennis exuded in their individual coaching style, which those unique intricacies created a harmonious collaboration that I felt yielded personal accomplishment and a rejuvenated enthusiasm of my excitement of tennis!

Coaching staff was excellent!

7/29/2015 - Coaching staff (Ross, Alex, Steven, Ricky) was excellent! Appreciate their hard work, passion for teaching and constructive feedback. They were committed to us improving our skills and creating a fun and supportive environment. Can't wait to return next year! Would also love a camp in the Seattle area.
