First-timers can quickly enjoy the many benefits that tennis has to offer. Learning the sport in a fun and rewarding atmosphere creates an environment where everyone excels. Tennis is a lifetime sport, where no matter your age or skill level it is never too late to pick up the tennis racquet!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Tennis is my passion! Teaching others the proper fundamentals using proven techniques is crucial to success. There are so many people who want to learn, but are afraid to seek help. As a certified teaching pro, I value the desire of my students to improve and in turn this adds value to my business.
What do you love most about your job?
Creating smiles and results is what motivates me. I get the chance to meet new people every day. The daily grind of corporate America never allowed me to utilize my outgoing personality. I love the outdoors and my office more now than the 10’x10’ cubicle I once had. Doing what I love is hardly a job!
