Tennis Professionals 2017

Ralph had great success teaching at The Calgary Tennis Club in 1995-1997.  His mission at the club was to ensure everyone was improving tennis and having fun doing so.  Well....he is back again this year as our Head Pro!

He’ll be teaching our adult cardio/drill classes, kids/junior clinics and group/private lessons.  What makes him an excellent trainer and coach for players of any age and level, is his enthusiasm and positive attitude combined with his playing and coaching abilities.

With his former tennis experience of coaching, off court training, hard work ethic, sanctioned entry tournaments and proven Canadian ranking, he has fulfilled his tennis dream.

More importantly than what Ralph has achieved is how he can help you.  So if you are looking to learn tennis or improve your game, you can do so with Ralph’s help. Like Ralph always says “the more you improve, the more fun you can have”.
