    Hello. First time post. I read the forums all the time though. I figured this would be a great place to post, because others here love/work in tennis. A bit about me, 5.0 player, former d1 and naia player, naia college tennis coach, and a tennis pro for about 8 years.

    I was recently second in charge of a huge tennis club, I loved the job, but had to move due to a illness and subsequent death in the family. So, I moved back to my home town and Im in a tennis rut. I work at a club here, but its not great, and I'm not allowed to be creative.

    If anyone on here has any creative tennis ideas they want to launch, or wants help at their club, or has any advice, I'd love to talk! Not asking for a job, but would be open to cool ideas and opportunities. Also, If anyone is involved with the florida tennis scene I'd like to chat, I ve thought about going there, but I imagine it's cutthroat. I'll start posting here more often.

    Anyone have any cool advice or know of any opportunities email me at

    Thanks for listening.

    On the lam from the sewretchian vortex
    Florida is a very diverse market for tennis...the further south in the state the more seasonal it becomes. A lot of the South Florida tennis directors and head pros go north for the summer to teach at summer-only clubs. From Tampa northwards, we're a little more all-year but be ready for less than steady income as rain washes out a lot of the better teaching hours late afternoon and early evening.

    I've worked as a racquet tech at many clubs and muni facilities in the Orlando area. We are more year-round if that's what you're looking for. If you can get a hold of the Florida Tennis Association, they publish an annual directory with club names, addresses, facility descriptions and tourney schedules. That might make a good start for posting some resumes. You've got enough experience to land something with a decent operation where you can make your mark. Good luck!
