A native of St. Louis, Chris started coaching tennis when his daughter began playing in 2011. (That daughter, Maya, is now a pro at FRC too.)
He is a certified PTR instructor who has served as the Youth Tennis Coordinator at Vetta West and tennis director for the St. Charles Parks Department. He also completed the USPTA Leadership Academy in the summer of 2018.
In summer, Chris is the Director of High Level Junior Tennis and the Coordinator of Junior Team Tennis at Shaw Park Tennis Center in Clayton.
Chris and Maya aren’t the only members of their family who are heavily involved in the sport. In fact, the Biesterfeld family was named the Tennis Family of the Year in 2016 by the USTA St. Louis District.
At Frontenac, Chris is the director of the Top Gun Jr Elite and organizes the Men’s Monday Singles, and Sunday Jr Tournament Practice.
