Coach Dimitar's Bio

Dimitar Pamukchiyan

Tennis Director | Managing Partner

Hi everyone! Welcome to Mimpify! People usually call me D. Originally from Varna, Bulgaria, I grew up playing a variety of sports, but tennis was the one that stuck! Also, because my old man taught me how to play tennis since I was six years old. I was fortunate to have him coached me throughout my journey to becoming number one in Bulgaria's boys juniors to top three in the men's. By the age of 16, I was ranked on the men's ATP tour for doubles. 

Battling between injuries and pursuing professional tennis, I decided to accept a full-ride scholarship offer to compete in college tennis, while continuing my education in Tennessee. After graduation, I landed in New York and began my coaching career, specializing in junior performance and adult training. However, the thrill of competing and traveling across continents, drew me back on the professional tour for just a little bit longer. During that time, I also had the opportunity to travel as a hitting partner and coach for top 100 WTA players.

Here at Mimpify, I am the "Idea Man", and also the Director of Tennis that will be spearheading your Private & Group Tennis Lessons. Tennis has brought many great people into my life, including clients that I am grateful to now call friends. I am so excited to be on this journey with my co-founder, to bring you all our exciting programs from tennis to fitness here at Mimpify!

Hi everyone! Thank you for visiting! Originally from the island, Borneo in Malaysia, I grew up playing many different sports, but only one stayed my true love.

I was offered a full-ride tennis scholarship to compete at Montana State University. Since graduation, I had also assisted in planning major WTA events, and have sparred with top women's tennis players such as, Daniela Hantuchova, Lindsey Davenport, Kim Clijsters and more!

Being a coach to me, expands further than just the physical aspect of a sport, but also the mental aspect, and the journey we call Life. *mic drop*

ABOUT US

During the pandemic of 2020 was when Mimpify was founded,  in Long Island, New York. We were just a couple of regular tennis pros who love being outdoors and active, and we felt like that freedom was compromised. Being adults, we already had an understanding of the situation at hand. However, for young children, their entire routine was thrown off. Schools were closed. Sleep-away camps were cancelled. Sporting competitions were postponed. When tennis became the sport approved to play outdoors, we saw it as an opportunity for us to provide a sense of normalcy and thrill for these young people. We wanted to get them moving, running, shaking, jumping! Any games and activities we can play to get them stimulated and engaged, we wanted to make happen. Since summer camp was cancelled that year, we thought why not bring summer camp to them! Right at home in the yard, with their siblings and trusted friends, it was something fun and exciting they can look forward to.

Healthy childhood development is fostered through adequate outdoor physical activities, sufficient sleep, and continued movement and play behaviors. We believe in maintaining the outlet that has been linked with increased self-esteem, reduced stress and anxiety, and elevated academic and professional achievement not only for children, but adults as well. We need it too!

With our team's background as former competitive athletes and current sports professionals, Mimpify provides active lifestyle services that support and encourage the health of our clients of all levels and ages. Whether you are getting your children to learn a new sport or simply want to improve the family's collective physical and mental fitness, Mimpify provides the resources to do so in a fun, friendly and easy-going environment.
