 I am very excited to be your new Tennis Director. My assistant Gabby and I started playing competitive tennis at a young age. We played on the varsity tennis team at Amity High School and served as co-captains our senior year. I am currently a junior at UConn and serve as captain of the UConn Club Tennis Team. Gabby is a sophomore at Emerson college and a member of their women’s tennis team. We have both coached and taught at several clubs around Connecticut, including the Woodbridge Club, Oak Lane, and Milford Indoor tennis center. Some of you may already know us: I was the assistant pro at Ridge Top during the summers of 2019 and 2021, and Gabby assisted me with the junior tennis camp last year. We are both looking forward to building the tennis program at Ridge Top, and we can’t wait to see everyone on the court!
