After a very successful collegiate career, Alvin Cheng collected a variety of experiences through multiple positions in the tennis coaching and administration world. He has now bundled those together to create ACT, an organization dedicated to providing instruction to boys, girls, men, and women who want to build on their interest and/or love for the game of tennis.

Alvin is currently the assistant coach for the Kenyon College men’s and women’s tennis teams. In his first season, he was part of a staff that sent two individuals from the Lords to the 2013 NCAA Division III National Championships, where each advanced to the Round of 8. That season, the Lords achieved a No. 1 overall national ranking and finished the year No. 2.
While the Lords and Ladies programs have a very storied history, Alvin touched two different collegiate programs. Before coming to Ohio, Alvin spent five years at Coker College (NCAA Division II) as the head men’s and women’s coach. There, both teams set new program records for wins in a season.
Alvin graduated from Eastern Kentucky University (NCAA Division I) in 2003. There, he was a four-year letter-winner for the Colonels and was a two-time Team MVP and captain. Alvin also earned his master’s degree in physical education from EKU.
He has been a direct part in success at all three NCAA divisional levels and also has experience as a club professional. Before joining the staff at Kenyon, Alvin was hired at the New Albany Tennis Center in Ohio as a staff professional where he taught lessons, planned out practice programs, and helped high school athletes prepare for the transition to the collegiate level. He has also earned membership to the U.S. Tennis Association, Intercollegiate Tennis Association, and is a certified professional on the Pro Tennis Registry.
