Ben Lamanna Ben Lamanna Head Coach 781-736-3648

Ben Lamanna, a 2002 graduate of Bates College, is in his eighth season as head men’s and women’s tennis coach at Brandeis. Under Lamanna’s tenure, the men’s tennis program has continually improved while scheduling many of the top Division III teams in the country along with Division I competition. In 2010, Lamanna and assistant Payum Payman were named the University Athletic Association Men's Tennis Coaching Staff of the Year. In 2012, Lamanna guided the Brandeis women to their highest-ever national ranking, at No. 19, while producing the program's first All-American in Carley Cooke '15. The 2013 Judges were among the nation's top 25 for the entire season, with Cooke earning two All-America honors, her second in singles and her first in doubles, along with teammate Faith Broderick '13.

Lamanna came to the Judges after spending the 2004-05 season as an assistant coach at his alma mater under head coach Paul Gastonguay. The Bates men posted an 11-5 record and reached the NCAA tournament for the fifth year in a row that season, setting a school record in the process. The Bobcats also produced the runner-up in the 2005 NCAA Division III singles tournament. The Bates women went 7-8 in 2004-05.

As a player at Bates, Lamanna played in every spot from two through six in the singles ladder, compiling an impressive 15-1 record as a junior. The Bobcats made three NCAA tournament appearances in his career, posting an overall record of 30-17 with Lamanna on the roster. As a senior in 2002, Lamanna earned the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Clarence Chaffee Award for demonstrating leadership on and off the court. In addition to coaching at Bates, Lamanna has spent time as a teaching professional. He has worked at the Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club in Vero Beach, Florida, and at Greenwich Country Club in Greenwich, Connecticut, since graduating from Bates with a degree in political science. Lamanna is a native of Barrington, R.I. He is a 1998 graduate of Barrington High School.
