Catching Up with Coach Sam: Summer Tennis Opportunities...!

 Dear Tennis Friends,

Anyone who knows me is aware of my love and passion for impacting lives through coaching tennis.

I am pleased to announce that my employment experience at Bay Area Racquet Club these past three months has been nothing short of phenomenal.  I have joined a team of six other passionate tennis professionals and a truly remarkable support staff who all share the same vision for excellence. In my 25 year career as a professional coach I have not had the pleasure to be associated with a more well run operation.

At this time I would like to take the opportunity to invite you to visit me at Bay Area Racquet Club.  The facility is located in Clear Lake off of NASA ROAD ONE behind the McDonald's and Regatta Apartments next to Space Center Houston.  The physical address is  17901 Kings Park lane, Houston Texas 77058.  We are a ten court lighted facility that offers a complete program for all ages and skill levels.  If you want a tennis experience that is second to none, you owe it to yourself to check out the excitement at Bay Area Racquet Club.

With the summer fast approaching, my duties and responsibilities transition to 'full-time' status at Bay Area Racquet Club. For those residing in an outlying area away from the club I would strongly suggest a day trip centered around a visit to my new place of employment for a lesson or camp experience. With abundant dining, shopping and entertainment opportunities near our facility, it would be quite easy to plan a fun family experience centered around your tennis activity. I would be happy to suggest fun options for such an adventure.

Find us on the web at to view our camp, lesson, tournament opportunities. and more.   Here a few direct links to some upcoming events and programs I feel certain many of you would enjoy:

Summer 2014 Camp Program

10 and under Summer Camps

Summer 2014 Evening Tennis Classes at BARC

May 23-25 USTA Sanctioned Adult and Junior 'Fajita Tournament'

June 21 BARC Racquet Pro Future Stars Tournament

I will be heavily involved in the 10 and under programming, summer camp, and junior tournament program.  I will also have availability for private lessons and am accepting new students until my schedule fills up.   I will be coaching primarily at Bay Area Racquet Club and the Rustic Oaks locations.  Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.

 Phone or text 713-818-9109.  Email me at

Hope to see you on the courts Soon...!

Making Memories...

If you have never watched a live pro tennis match before you are missing out on something very special.  There are few tennis experiences more inspiring for an up and coming player than to watch a professional tennis match up close and personal. 

 Here is a photo of my son Elijah Chadwell watching one of the Clay Court competitor's during a practice session during qualifying weekend back in 2011.  Make plans now to take advantage of this great opportunity.  I hope to see you at the US Men's Clay Court Championship this April.

 Don't forget the sunscreen...!

Future Home of

Welcome to the opening post of my new blog.   This blog will become be my primary internet presence as I transition from a broader community based tennis service business at multiple locations to a more focused private coaching and programming situation at Bay Area Racquet Club located at 17901 Kings Park Lane, Houston Texas 77058.

Monica, Sam, and Elijah Chadwell
Pictured to the right are my lovely bride, Monica and our son Elijah.

Monica and I first met back in 2001 at Bay Area Racquet Club.  We married in 2003,  Monica is a professional artist and over the years our careers have taken us all over the greater Houston area.

Both Monica, Elijah and our other son Connor are avid tennis players.  One of our favorite activities is to attend local tennis events featuring professional or top college players.  This family photo was taken during a college match held at the Houston Metropolitan Racquet Club in downtown Houston.   Watching live college tennis action has recently become a passion of ours, especially if we are watching The Texas Aggies!

Elijah loves the Aggies so much because his older brother, Connor attended Texas A and M.  Connor is one of top athletes I have ever coached and definitely has the game to play top college tennis or even turn professional. Connor is pictured below to the far right.

Elijah Chadwell and Noah Elsner
Pictured left to right are participants from my Clear Lake area home school program:  Elijah Chadwell, and Noah Elsner.  These boys love tennis and are also avid Texas Aggie fans.  Elijah hopes to play tennis for Texas A and M when he is ready to start college.

The Clear Lake home school group is comprised of participants from seven families. We have had as many as 18 participants and the program was previously maxed out on court space at Nassau Bay Park but the move to Bay Area Racquet Club will ensure program growth for many seasons to come.
Connor Copeland, March 2013

My title at Bay Area Racquet Club is 'Program Director' with a special emphasis on 10 and under programs, novice tournaments, junior team tennis, and home school programs.  This is literally a 'dream' job that was designed specifically for me: tailored to fit my strengths and preferences, and I could not be happier!  To God be the Glory!

I am currently involved with several other coaching and management contracts through the spring. Over the next few months I will either be scaling back operations at these locations, or bringing them under the umbrella of the scope of my responsibilities at Bay Area Racquet Club.
