About the Coach

Bill Shine (22nd season)
650.330.2001 extension 2343

Bill Shine has been the coach of the girls’ and boys’ teams at Menlo School since 1996. During that  time, his teams have won a combined 23 Central Coast Section titles and have never lost a league match. No other coach in San Mateo County history has been so successful, and only one coach in all of CCS  sports has won more CCS titles. Shine topped the 400th victory mark in 2013. As a junior player, Shine  earned a Top 10 ranking every year from 1962 to 1973. He was a four-time MVP at Los Altos High and a  two-time CCS singles finalist. Shine was part of the CCS champion doubles team in 1971. In college at  University of Louisiana, Lafayette, Shine was named first-team all-conference in 1975 and 1976.  Before  coming to Menlo, he coached at Pinewood School and Los Altos High School.
