Mila Horak


Mila, MTMCA Level 3 Pro, USPTA P1, and a holder of the Certificate des Professeurs et Moniteurs du Tennis au Quebec, is the founder of Rising Stars Tennis with generous help from the Sunset Hills Country Club. She has been teaching tennis in Thousand Oaks/Westlake Village community for the past 20 years. Originally from Prague, she was a nationally ranked player in the Czech Republic and Canada, and received a full tennis scholarship in the United States.

Mila was recognized for her teaching excellence as a recipient of the USPTA Little Tennis Award. She knows all phases of the game, yet her passion is fueled by healthy child development. According to Mila, “There is a window of opportunity until about 12 years of age, where perceptual-motor development, movement capacities, agility, balance, coordination, timing rhythm; personal and social skills can be learned exponentially.  It will have a huge impact on your child’s life”.
