WIMBLEDON TENNIS ACADEMY

Wimbledon Junior Tennis is now under the direction of Joe Shahleen. For 40 years Wimbledon has trained many of the best metro area players some who have gone on to play professional tennis. Many of our players have had successful high school and collegiate tennis careers. We take great pride in developing the skills of all players of any age and ability level. From ages 3 to 18 come and join us to improve your tennis.

Our Wimbledon Tennis Staff is interested in more than making a child a tennis star. We encourage good sportsmanship and are genuinely interested in these junior growing up to be good examples to those who follow them. For those young players starting out, as well as high school competitors, we offer a program that provides healthy competition and encourages having fun.

A positive atmosphere is what we try to create, and I am dedicated to helping these juniors learn and enjoy tennis, no matter what their aspirations are.

Tennis is truly a sport for a lifetime. I encourage you to join our tradition of excellence and I look forward to doing the very best.

– Joe Shaheen
