Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club names new Director of Racquet Sports
The iconic Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club in Vero Beach welcomes Kainoa Rosa as its new Director of Racquet Sports. Touting over 20 years of racquet experience, Kainoa’s day-to-day responsibilities include overseeing tennis and pickleball programs for the Club, which has been named one of Florida’s Top Seven Tennis Communities by the Private Communities Registry.
“We interviewed a number of excellent candidates, but immediately Kainoa stood out,” said Rob Tench, General Manager at Orchid Island. “Kainoa’s energy and experience impressed us and he’s a great fit with the Club and our members.”
Since early childhood, Kainoa Rosa has always had a passion for racquet sports. Hailing from the scenic islands of Hawaii, Kainoa could be found hitting tennis balls when he was only five years old. After moving to Seattle when he was seven, he received coaching from his mother and uncle, who were both well-known tennis players. Later, Kai attended the University of Hawaii on a full tennis scholarship, and after graduation, he decided to follow his passion.
He recalls, “I wanted to make tennis my career pathway, and the coaching adventure started from there.”
After graduating, Kainoa returned to Seattle where he coached at high-performance tennis programs throughout the Pacific Northwest region. Later, he relocated to Tampa, and spent six years at the Apollo Beach Racquet & Fitness Club working his way up to Director of Tennis & Operations.
Desiring to live closer to the beach and work for a top-tier tennis facility, Kainoa moved his young family across the state to Orchid Island in Vero Beach.
Today, Kainoa’s focused on elevating the private Club’s tennis and pickleball programs, introduce new exhibitions and social tournaments, member mixers, and more.
“Everything I’ve experienced at Orchid Island has been excellent, especially the welcoming community and staff,” says Kainoa. “The motto here is to live life on purpose, and I look forward to contributing to it.”
When he’s not working, Kainoa enjoys biking, beaching, and traveling with his wife, Bianca, and their baby girl, Healani.
