Dakota, a former student of Gonzo, has been playing tennis in Boulder since his childhood. He is an avid player and spectator of the game and his passion for the sport lies deeply in its technical aspects.

He started teaching in 2011 and is currently attending the Leeds School of Business at CU.
Gonzo is from a small town in Cordoba, Argentina. At the age of 15 he moved to Buenos Aires. He played his first tournament when he was 7. As a Junior player he was the #2 ranked player in his state and held the #10 ranking in the whole of Argentina. As a teenager he played 1st & 2nd Division in Buenos Aires. He has played professionally in Italy, Spain and France. He started teaching tennis at age 15, helping his father. He got his first job as a Tennis Director while in Argentina and has been teaching for 25 years ever since. He has taught in Argentina, Italy, Spain, and now Boulder, Colorado, USA.
Gonzo Tennis was founded in 2004 by Gonzalo "Gonzo" Garcia with the idea of bringing quality tennis programs to the Boulder community. Since then, Gonzo Tennis has shared the courts with players from ages 3 to 75 through programs for kids and adults.
