Tennis Coach


Chatham Florham Park

My favorite sports event/memory/moment is.... when I won my HWS tournament in my high school career. It was my sophomore year when I made the school record for being one of the only players at Pope John to win HWS Counties for the tennis team.  

Coach Rawe played high school tennis at Pope John and also competed at high-level USTA tournaments. Rawe is a professional tennis registry certified instructor and has had the opportunity to acquire teaching experience in Spain (Rafael Nadal Academy). Coach Rawe has been teaching on a part- and full-time basis since 2021 in the Northern New Jersey area. Rawe was born in the United States and trained at various academies. 

Coach Rawe shares his deep love for the game with students of all ages and levels at Centercourt Club and Sports. As a standout high school academy player, Coach Rawe’s' experience has shaped his teaching philosophies, he believes that tennis is a sport that rewards passion, athleticism, and focus on and off the court.
