Iosua Malaki

Business Manager & Associate Teaching Professional

Iosua is pumped up to be apart of the Rippner Tennis family as the Business Manager. After taking a hiatus from tennis, Iosua is back with a renewed love and passion for the sport. As a junior he was very fortunate to have the opportunity to train with Scott Adams, former coach for WTA superstar Bethanie Mattek-Sands. It was with Scott that Iosua discovered his love for the sport. His competitive spirit and work ethic landed him playing high level Division III tennis for both Southwestern University and later Concordia University.

Iosua brings to the table a diverse background in tennis and in corporate management. He spent a year, at the age of just 18, as General Manager of a retail supplement chain and took the store from 356 in the nation to number 2 in the nation, in under six months. Since then he spent his time pursuing fashion as a personal stylist at Nordstrom. During his time as a junior he was the assistant junior coach at the Bentwater Country Club in Montgomery, Texas where he cultivated critical thinking and positive outlooks in the junior students. While being the assistant coach he trained state and nationally ranked juniors. He looks to bring this community closer together through our love for tennis.

Iosua say’s to “Never regret a moment because in every moment there is endless opportunities to learn more about yourself and others around you.”
